Feed mill

Spending a nice saturday afternoon getting the old feed mill running. We are running it with the first massey we bought. It's a 1951 massey 30. A lot of hours on it, but it's still running.

RE:Feed mill

This is another nice piece.  Is it a recent discovery or have you had it a while?  Does it work?

RE:Feed mill

picked up at an auction this spring. Just got it going this afternoon. It took a little bit, I had the belt running backwards at first. When the corn goes in the hammers take it up and over into the screen, not down into the screen.  Works good now, might need some duct tape to seal up the leaks though.

RE:Feed mill

What some nice pics of a Hammer Mill. When I was a kid back in the late 1940's -1950's I used to go to a mill that was driven by a water wheel. That was in Hampshire in the UK. It had the grind stones and ground corn (wheat, barley and oats) for animal feed. I think you would call them small grains. However when the grind stones wore out they installed a Massey-Harris Hammer Mill to do the grinding ( I don't know what model it was) Looked a lot like the one in your photos but it was driven by a Petter Diesel engine. It was housed in the mill at the far end which had quite a low roof and when they started this thing up the noise was just unbelievable. The old building just shook but I guess it did a good job.
