Our Friend Commander Zero (Editor of the great Notes From The Bunker blog) recently wrote me. He told me about a company in Stevensville, Montana. It is Bitterroot Tool & Machine Company. They make two types of very stout hand-powered grain mills. They are sold under the brand name The GrainMaker. These are configured a lot like the ubiquitous Country Living grain mill. They have a flywheel pulley with a v-belt groove. This makes them suitable for adding an electric motor. (The company also makes and sells a mounting table and motorizing kit.) Their mills have extension handles, to make them easy to use for hand grinding. Hooray! Another product useful to prepared families made here in the Redoubt.
