there was a thread started for this Mill back in 2010. ( search: stover ) My father Richard purchased this from Matt about two years ago and was completed this spring. pictures were taken at the Hanley Falls MN Threshing show back in august. if you had a bunch of corn to grind back in the day this is the unit you should gave had. direct drive and 20 hp. it can mill. twice we threw in a 5 gallon pail of ear corn and she hardly slowed down. it really drew a crowd! here are some pics:

This thing looks like a bear to drive. From the tires to the steering wheel to the seat, ... I'd hate to have to drive it very far !

Actually it does not move under its own power. The output shaft couples directly to the mill. No tube or driveshaft to the rear axle. The wood pole in the first pic by the front axle is the reach to pull it. The wood over the hopper is a safety precaution against flying cobs. He tried to replicate one from a brochure picture as close as he could .

Welcome to the forum, Adam.

Say hi to your father for me. I used to enjoy visiting with him when I was a truck driver and delivered freight to the shop that he worked at in Willmar. Since I switched careers, I only bump into him about once a year or so, at a swap meet or something.
Now that I'm an RN at a psych hospital, I'm sure he doesn't want to come see me at work. :-)

Adam, as far as I know you can't post a video on the forum, but you can certainly paste a link to a Youtube video on the forum, like this, here is a Steve Jelf video of his freshly rebuilt 1915 engine running (before freeze plug replacement).
