Corn meal grinder

I was curious on how to grind corn for corn meal with a hit and miss engine. I have seen corn meal made at the Lynden WA show and usually pick up a few bags and would like to do it at home too. Maybe and even set up at the local farmer's market. I was thinking it would be interesting to have a grinder set up with a hit and miss engine. My questions are how to match up a grinder with the right power hit and miss to do like a 5# bag at a time. Is this possible?

If this works... This isn't a hit-miss, but a throttle governed engine, a McCormick-Deering LA hooked to a Enterprise #70 mill. The mill was hand operated , but I removed the handle. The engine is 2
1/2 hp- 3
1/2 hp at somewhere around 500 rpm on the main flywheel. The pulley shaft is off the cam shaft and turns 1/2 the rpms of the engine.The engine drive pulley is a 3 1/2" D and the mill wheel is 20", so I can throttle down the engine to around 475-500 rpm and the turns the mill just about right

That is a nice set up. I think what I will do, since I know nothing about grinding corn is wait until the end of July and go to the tractor show in Lynden and check out some of the rigs. I have an Oliver Super 55 that I have a pulley drive that fits on the PTO. I may hook a mill up to that. Thanks for all the info. This idea is growing legs! I also found a whole grain seller just down the road.

Try down on the 8N board.I'm pretty sure a guy called Zane hangs out there and I think he had a mill for grinding corn he was selling. Give him a shout.

It can be done. I have seen a few mills using one cylinder engines. If you are going to sell the meal, check and see if you are required to have the corn tested for aflatoxin before you grind it. Nasty stuff.

I was going to check with the Lynden guys on the corn. They get non GMO super healthy, no junk corn to sell. I definitely would have to have it very consumer friendly.
