Handcrafted in Pennsylvania by an Amish craftsman, these gristmills have a working water wheel attached! This gristmill with waterwheel come complete with a small, efficient, adjustable electric pump for recirculating the water and a sealed plastic basin to hold the water in the wooden trough. The shafts are zinc-coated and the bearings are sealed. Because of the inherent characteristics of wood as a material, these gristmills may include knots and other natural blemishes. While these products are skillfully crafted, all wood products will include natural variations such that no two gristmills will be identical. These gristmills do require partial assembly. They come in three pieces and requires a drill driver or similar tool with a square bit to put eight square-head screws into pre-drilled holes to fasten the gristmill to the wooden water tray. They also require a half-inch wrench to put the waterwheel in place and tighten a nut on the axle.
Shipping is included in the price of each item. Because of the weight and size of these items, shipping is a significant cost factor. To inquire about local pick-up or pallet shipping of multiple Amish-made items, please contact us:
Important: All wooden products sold unfinished should be finished immediately with a paint or stain by the customer. No wood products should be left unfinished, as they are extremely susceptible, especially to humidity or water damage, in this state. Unfinished products should not be purchased unless adequate weather-safe storage is available while the product awaits treatment.
Note: The cord on the pump that is included with the large grist mill is 6' long. The cord on the pump included with the small grist mill is 4.5' long.
