Handsome and imaginative are but two words to describe this beautiful new project, an old-fashioned functioning waterwheel and grist mill.
BONUS PLANS: For great savings, and to round out your yard set, ask for our Windmill and Lighthouse project plans. You'll pocket more than $15 compared to ordering these plans separately!
This scaled, 55-inch tall model is bound to be as popular as our working lighthouse and windmill projects have always been.
Of course, with the grist mill, you can relax and enjoy the soft sounds of summer while water tumbles gracefully over the turning wheel.
At the base of the project, water is collected in a small trough where an inexpensive re-circulating pump lifts it to the top of the mill so the cycle can begin again.
Largely drawn to full-size, the pattern for the grist mill required numerous sheets of blueprint size paper (and hence, a slightly higher cost than normal) to be certain that all you need to know is contained in one complete and easy to follow package. For the resulting ease of construction, the extra investment is well worthwhile.
Besides clearly describing all the material you need to get underway, the plans for this project come complete with simple, step-by-step assembly instructions capable of guiding a novice hobbyist from beginning to end. Pattern No. YF6.
