Hi David,

On my Kelly Dupled feed mill, the hopper is a thin wall iron casting. Mine had been sand blasted and primed when I got it, but I saw another one still in original paint. It looked a lot like Minnieapolis-Moline "Harvest Gold". All the lettering and striping and other decoration was black. Hope this helps.

I have an original Kelly Duplex Mill. It looks to be yellow. I have a picture of it on blizzardbranch.com on the corn mill page. You might tell something about it. Also Ken on the gristmill exchange site has a op. manaul on some.

Hey catoe;

Know of any other kelly duplex or quaker city mills around? Or even a Letz with the gear driven silage chopper but not the one with the conveyor belt feeder on it? I'm in northern NC but my folks are around Fayetteville so you might not be too far away from them if you're in the sand hills. I'm looking for some flat belt driven equipment and having been a miller for a few years corn mills would be the ideal candidate. Unfortunately, I don't have any provision for woodworking so that's why i'm looking at the letz's and kellys. I can work on metal, but not wood. Any ideas of anything nearby? Nice looking setup you have there!

Jeb

Jeb, I don't know of any right now, but will keep my eye out for some. The Quaker double run mill came from Norlina N.C. John

That's not terribly far away from where I am right now (near Rocky Mount). I know of a nice Letz mill but i've been trying for the past 2 years to get it with no luck. The guy really isn't sure if it technically belongs to him or not and hasn't been very enthusiastic about finding out. Oh well, i keep looking.
