I live in Canada and am looking for a crankenstein mill. Anyone have a good website or brew store to buy from?

I use the 2A. My hopper is a 2 Gal bucket, someday I'll make something with slopped sides. I drive the mill with a 173 RPM direct coupled motor.

An older picture but here is the mill and deck.

Got mine right from Crankenstein. Motorized similar to J's with this motor http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?item=5-1098&catname=electric . surpluscenter also sells the couplings to drive mill http://www.surpluscenter.com/sort.asp?catname=powerTrans&keyword=PSF3 . All works very well. 1ea 1/2 coupling, 1 ea 3/8 coupling and 1 ea buna-n insert. I just used the small L-050 style and haven't had any issues.

I have a 3E, LOVE IT!
This is a great mill, C&S makes good products, I picked mine up from the shop they are built in here in Atlanta. I got the 1/2" drive shaft option, I believe it will be easier to find the right pulley once I go to motorize it. For now I am just using a 1/2" drill.

I got a Monster Mill and love it. The guy who runs the company used to be partners with the Crankenstein guy. Apparently, they had a falling out, and he made his own design (in my opinion it's much better) and has additional components that you can purchase with it (like a machined hopper that holds up to 12 pounds).

I have a 2a ???? I think. I would highly recommend a direct drive motor over a belt and pulley system.
