Well the mill is home in all her rusty, siezed up glory!
Never heard of Smalley hammer mills before, it was sold by a local International Havester dealer, made in Manitowoc Wisconsin US of A. Nice unit, there are an awful lot of hammers in this thing and they all look great. Fan is siezed up, I’m going to need the gas axe to disassemble this thing, every bolt I tried would have snapped.
One thing I like is the absence of that 180 duct that Pete mentioned always clogged up on his. Looks like the fan draws the milled feed right out the side of the housings. I can’t find any info on how much power this thing needs, so I guess I’ll default to big engines given the choice, I want whatever engine I get to be able to still run it on wood gas.
