Nice job man!!!! I was surprised how inexpensive the motor was...  Thanks for posting!!

I've also built one the other way as well - similar to this BYO article:

I gave that one to my friend and this one works just as well and there is no fan belt required.

The inexpensive surplus motor with the gear reduction built in makes this affordable and has less exposed parts to clean.

You could do a simpler switch setup than I did, but I liked the idea of moving the switch right in front of the mill - on the last one I had it inside the cabinet.

Took the ideas that several other have shared with me and came up with this direct drive Barley Crusher cabinet:
