Electrifying the apple grinder !

Electrifying the apple grinder !

Now, if you're old enough to remember the show, 'Home Improvement', you'll remember that Tim "the tool man" Taylor had a simple mantra: "More power"

With that in mind, and with cider-making season drawing near, James and I decided that manually grinding the apples last year was tedious and hard.  (I think you can probably see where this is heading)

We've been doing a lot of 'scrapheap challenge' stuff lately, including making James a trailer and a small roller for his little tractor so this was just another fun project.

After a couple of hours of scavenging and tinkering we'd turned our manual grinder into an electric one :-D

The prototype was tested and with a few modifications will be put into action soon.   Video of exploding apples to follow...
