The MM2 has a 6061 aluminum block frame housing two steel rollers on oil-impregnated bronze bushings. The drive shaft and all axles are integral to the roller rather than screwed into the ends, which makes it possible to drive the mill clockwise or counter-clockwise. Stainless knurled knobs allow a gap spacing adjustment range of .070". You will need to fabricate/supply a base, hopper, and corded electric drill.

That said, I probably wouldn't buy this mill if I was going to do it over. The manufacturer actually sells different options for this mill, like stainless rollers and a heavier drive shaft, check their web site. The mill NB sells is designed to drive with something like an electric drill.
I motorized my mill, using a 1725rpm electric motor and had to use a pretty big pulley to get the rpm's down to an acceptable level. The mill NB sells comes with a 3/8" shaft. The problem is, the larger pulleys only come in 1/2" and larger, so you will need an adapter. That big of a wheel on the end of a 3/8" shaft with an adapter seems a little 'bendy' and I worry about accidently knocking the shaft out of true. So far it works great, but I think a 1/2 inch shaft would be better. (Posted on 10/31/13)

Also, per other reviews, run a 5-8 pounds of grain through to knock the burrs off, but after that, this thing will last a lifetime. (Posted on 8/20/12)
