The millers all work on a voluntary basis. The guide explained to me how the rotation of the vanes is translated into a vertical gear, that drives a horizontal gear, which further drives two horizontal gears. Each of these gears is connected to a shaft, that in turn drives the grinding wheel over a stationary counterpart. A hopper at a side, allows the raw grains to enter into the wheels. After the grains are ground into flour (the consistency of which can be controlled by a mechanism of belts and strings), a chute takes the produce into bags, placed one floor below. Each 40 kilo bag is then lowered down by a pulley system through a trap door to waiting wagons for shipment.
