All the bits put together

Finally the fully completed article all put together.

This will be the last post covering construction of the Ball Mill other than if it sneaks into shot as I work on other things.

Cool! How well does it work?

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Work it does. There are some observations though....

The end cap (One is glued in place) does not fit tight enough to stop a quantity of the finest powder escaping as it is milling.

Solutions are to use a material tight container inside the tube or to tilt the assembly towards the non leaky end.

Overall it is slower than I would like due to speed of the mixer geared down by the ration of the diameter of the drive roller to the Milling Vessel.

But as I say Works.
