    Yes, that was my idea, a separate item that uses a UJ and you fasten the UJ to the end of the shaft.

    I think we are both visualising this differently?. With sprockets you should be able to get away from using UJ's if you hold the drive sprocket directly in the drill chuck and mount the drill. A shafted drive sprocket between two bearing bosses would be a very different story though, but add quite a bit to cost. Then you could have a UJ attached to that shaft.

    yes I think very differently

    I was thinking a pressed steel housing, containing two sprockets running on a pair of bearing shafts joined by a length of chain

    the drill would attached rigidly on the power input shaft and then the power output shaft to the mill would have a UJ so that you don't need perfect alignment between the output shaft and the mill drive shaft

    Ahh okay I am with you now. Would be cool, but I think it lands up needing lots of parts and being heavy and expensive. I will look into options like that too tho.

    Please keep it cheap ... that's the only reason I don't own one yet, as just about ALL the other makes out there are way overpriced .... that's why i also wondered about the drill direct to mill shaft like many a homebrewer from across the pond are doing ... wouldn't that be the cheapest option ? ... they recon the cordless drills are better, with less speed and more torque

    Something "straightforward" like this
