Alternative Power for Your Wonder Junior

Not everyone wants to crank their hand grain mill by hand all the time and that is why the Wonder Junior grain mill gives you options for other alternative powering options. These options include drill, bike power, and motor setup. To hook up the Wonder Junior grain mill to a motor or a bike you can use our Pulley Attachment or even chain sprockets. With our Drill Bit Attachment you can run the Wonder Junior with you high powered 1/2 inch drill. We have found a few examples of alternative power that people have used to operate their Wonder Junior grain mill with.

We suggest that you take precautions to make sure your alternative power setup is safe, WonderMill is not responsible for injuries caused by your alternative power setup.
