[Cob] Mortar Mixersotherfish otherfish at comcast.net

Dulane, I know that some folks have had success with HORIZONTAL axis mortar mixers. The productive technique seems to be small batches that allow the straw to mix in effectively. With a horizontal axis you have gravity working for you as it acts to separate the mix from the paddles as the cob is rotated in the mix tank. I suspect that since gravity will not act to pull the cob off the paddles with each rotation in a vertical axis mixer such as the one you are considering, the tendency will be for the mass of cob to hang up on the rotating paddles and simply rotate around as a mass in the mix tank. Don't know for sure that this is what will occur, but suspect it will be the case. Can you give one of these mixers a try prior to purchasing ? Please keep the list informed as to your success in finding a means of achieving a means of mechanical mixing of cob. john fordice on 3/30/04 12:07 PM, Dulane at silkworm at spiderhollow.com wrote: > Has anyone tried using an Imer Mini-Mix 60 electric mortar mixer?
