I took the plunge, ordered my parts, and started in on the build.

A couple brackets and the bag-o-McMaster are pictured first.

And this is the mill the parts were made on. It currently resides in one half of my apartment kitchen. Sometimes it becomes a battle of frying pan versus drill bit.

I will continue posting pictures as they become available.

In the second photo, I see both a bar of Toblerone chocolate and a wine glass, in addition to the mill and toolbox -- that's an interesting mix in a kitchen!

Good work; please keep us posted,

Larry Pfeffer,
