Did mostly layout work for the pieces of the guard today I can usually build shit in my head. But, this is sort of like an Origami project I'm trying to minimize my welding so there is a lot of bending press brake (God I wish I had access to a real one) work planning this is going to be vise and hammer fakery. So, for a change I had to resort to some visual planning on paper making crude by draftsmans standards with real measurements on paper to make damn sure what I'm thinking will work will. I also played with the mill greased the gears and ran a batch of Antique Red Wheat through the mill for some proof of concept testing. I scored some Red Wheat in #10 cans packed by the LDS just shy of 30 years ago. Somebody tossed it cause it had some surface rust on the cans. The inside of the cans is absolutely pristine with an oxygen absorber laying on top. No off smells no evidence of issues. So, a batch of bread is rising next to the woodstove fixing to punch it down and let it rise again before it goes in the oven.
