Completely restored Fanning Mill.
Original condition shown in pictures.

Mill was rebuilt using all new wood, all metal parts are from the original mill.

Very much a part of a museum collection these days seems to be the fanning mill. A fanning mill is a device made of wood, with a metal crank and wooden hand grip, and with sliding drawers, appearing almost like a piece of furniture. When restored to their natural beauty, they are quite attractive.

Fanning Mills removed straw, chaff, stones, dirt and dust, weed seeds, and light immature seeds from wheat, oats, rye, barley, and other grains. It was important to remove contaminants for better preservation during storage, to have mold and grit free flour, and for securing viable seed free of weed seeds. The Fanning Mill has shaking sieves over which the threshed grain kernels mixed with bits of straw, chaff, stones and soil particles rattle. The smaller pieces fall through holes to a lower sieve where smaller particles are separated. The machines have hand cranked fans that move air across and upward through the sieves to float off the light straw, chaff and dust.
