There are four wooden chutes beneath the sieves and finally spouts made of sacking that take the flour and bran down to the flour bin on the ground floor.
The corn gets to the stone by being taken on the sack hoist to the top of the mill and then poured through a chute into a hopper which dribbles it into the eye of the stone. The damsel is attached to the runner stone and spins around with it at about 120 r.p.m. The effect of this is to vibrate the shoe causing the corn to run down the slope. As the corn travels out from the centre of the stone to the edge, it is ground up into the meal..
