1447457176_image.jpeg1447457195_image.jpegIs this a bit too big...It will be heavy and not portable..a Honda motor....5hp....4 inch intake...is it just too big? It should crush some rock though..

never to big mate but I don't think 5hp will do the job.


Wish in one hand and poo in the other , See which one fills up first !

if you make it like a hammer mill with smallish hammers 5 hp Honda motor should be ok

stainless is harder but you will still get wear and you need to be able to remove the filings / chips with a magnet.

Yes thanks jethro ..steel partials could be a bit of a problem..I suppose that's why nobody uses ss chains..cheers

I think you have the basis for a good flail mill there.
I built mine out of a piece of pipe of indeterminate composition, diameter about 13 inches wall thickness 3/8'' ,width 4'' (100mm) The chain I used was a bit of old high tensile lifting chain arranged in a cloverleaf pattern around a 25mm shaft. It is side feed & side discharge as I believe this is a bit easier on the screens. I powered mine with a 6.5 hp chonda knock off with centrifugal clutch. Its cheap but works ok.

It takes 65mm stone and reduces to 3mm & smaller dust in one pass & feeds at about 750g a minute.

It depends which angle you look at me on tongue

I'd say the size is borderline ok pretty good size mate. You certainly wouldn't be lifting the device haha. Wheels needed

I think the diameter is ok but would be too wide...I think around 4 inches would suffice..I will start with a new bit of tube as might be a bit tough cutting that bit down..will check out the steel suppliers around town..and be able to transport a lighter crusher with us in the trailer ..keep that big boy for when we go big time..lol

You might need to make a spaghetti & oxy torch to cut through the thick stuff wink
Personally..I'd ve happy with that size for a mill, certainly limited with drilling and cutting for its size and thickness though so it keep that minimal and just use threaded rod and bolts to hold two square sheets of steel plate on each side like jeff williams one
