If you can find a bracket that fits, that will work., otherwise you can use some a metal or plastic tie.[*]Wire connectors[/list]*At the time of writing this, the Beefy Bodine is out of stock. Another alternative Iâ€™ve seen is Part # 5-1086 from www.surpluscenter.com. This is a bit faster than the Beefy Bodine, but others have reported good results using it.To start, you need to remove the wheel from the motor (if yours has one). To do this, remove the three screws holding the wheel on it, place them in the other holes and screw them in. This will push the wheel from the motor:Next, you need a table or something to mount your motor and mill to. Many of the folks that have done this project use a basic 2x4 type table with plywood as the tabletop. Others have designed a table-top design that sits on buckets (one which usually catches the grain). Whatever works for you is fine. The key is that there is enough space on top for your motor and your mill, and there is enough room underneath to fit your grain bucket.The table I made was relatively simple, but still more than what is absolutely necessary. Before attaching anything, I measured out the a skirt to put around the outside so the table was more stable (you can put these between the legs if you want to).After everythingâ€™s measured out, itâ€™s time to start putting it together:After I got the legs all attached, I added braces to the skirt and a small piece of wood to each side to attach the table-top:After attaching the top, the table itself is complete:At a minimum, youâ€™ll want to cut an opening for the maltmill. I added a second opening to put in the switch. One thing to keep in mind when cutting the opening is, if you attach a box to the tabletop as I do (shown below), you will need to cut the opening longer by about an inch on each side than the millâ€™s opening. This is so you can attach/remove the mill (pictured near the end of the project).
