Denise did you get any bites on your BIL's fanning mill? I had no clue what one was so I googled "what is a fanning mill", http://farmcollector.com had a great story and pictures of some.

P.S. I have always thought it strange to use the words "get rid of" when selling something. To me it sounds like you will be getting someone elses junk. Words paint pictures, "salesmanship in print". I know you are just doing a family member a favor.

not yet, they are downsizing and they don't have room for it anymore after moving to their new house. Would be a great item for some one who wants to clean their grain with people power instead of fossil fuels. For some reason, I figured permie peeps would know what one was... you know what they say, one man's junk is another's treasure, and this isn't junk. If I didn't live in the city and had room for it myself I'd get it. Unfortunately, I don't. I'm really surprised that no one is interested, maybe I haven't advertised in the right place...
