Meadows Mill
Horizontal Millstones with Cap Stone, Hopper,
Shoe and Damsel
 
 
 
Shoe is the wooden part that funnels the grain into the eye of the millstones
and Damsel is the metal piece that shakes the grain to make it move.

 

The hook is used to pick up the top runner stone and flip it over
to be sharpened.
 
 
The elevator lifts the ground grain up into the sorter.
 
This is a functioning, multi-screened sorter.
