Empowering The Hand Mill.

This booklet will show any 'handy man' how to turn someone else's junk into your new powered grinder.

There are any number of grain grinding machines on the market today.
They vary greatly in price, according to what you want.
You can buy electric models for around $2000.00 or you can do as I did.

I bought the less expensive model around $300NZ (picture is what it used to look like before being Madmaxified).

It's the SAMAP, French model and we've been using now for 15 years.

Stunningly enough if you look really carefully at the image you cannot see the 3 pin lead ... and that's because it didn't come with one.

I say didn't because after using it for 8 years I was left to grind the grain one day and can you believe it "I saw the light".

In this 'strange masculine vision' I worked out that I used more calories grinding the flour than I got from eating the bread, and if it continued I'd eat well but starve to death.

It took me 2 hours to grind enough for a week.
Massive biceps is one thing, completely pharqued is quite another.

Something had to change ... so I Madmaxified it. I like making up new and different terms and I'm willing to bet you won't find the term " Madmaxified" in your dictionary.

I designed in my head several different options then just before the next grind one materialized into action.

There's a drawing with the basic construction and photos with explanations and a contact email for backup support should you get stuck.

As with all my inventions this one had to cost nothing to build so the parts had to be available for free.

We grind wheat, blue hopi maize, millet, golden amaranth, and barley into "bread".

Keep an eye out for other machines I've built:

Seed Hullers: strip the seed from the plant head.

Seed Winnowers: clean the seed up and get rid of the chaff.

Serious about growing your own food? You'll need all three of these.
