With no regrets but with some reservation, I sold this mill on February 24, 2006


These pages describe and document the restoration of my 12" Williams Stone Burr Grist Mill. I bought the mill in January of 2000 and began restoration soon after. It took me close to a year, working off and on, to complete the mill. It sat in my shop for over a year after I had completed it. Finally, in January of 2003 I moved the mill out of my shop and set it up permanently in a shed behind my shop. Though I initially ran it off my John Deere H tractor, soon after I set up my Fairbanks-Morse ZC-118 to power it. Browse thru the many pages and pictures for complete details on the restoration.

Finally Finished.
A day at the mill.
A personal note from Eric Williams.
