Christmas 2013 Progress Update

The new native Pecan wooden frame has been shellacked. Also the fasteners were wire brushed and hand filed to remove rust then painted black

Here is a close up of the installed fasteners.

And here it is with the Hopper installed.


  1. I am about to start rebuilding the frame on my NM 18" mill. The frame on mine is incomplete, would you be so kind to send me the measurements of the tall posts and the frame the hopper sits on. I only have about 1/2 of one of the tall posts and none of the frame that hopper sits on. Thanks in advance! Email at

  2. Forgot to mention you have done a fantastic job on the frame for your mill, I can only hope mine will look as good as yours!
