I'm trying to baseline my equipment while getting the hang of everything. My grinding setup I'm rather proud of. Using a power drill cut my grinding time down to about 15% of what is was by hand.

Yesterday I was just grinding away in this ridiculous September heat like an evil sweaty witch in my kitchen.
It was a double, too.

Victorio Deluxe Grain Mill
First batch I did only had 2lbs of grain, however what a PITA to keep turning. They make a motor for it, but it is another $40. So I found a little 3" Straight blade screw driver that came out of a vehicle I no longer have, cut off the blade, squared the end so it would chuck into a drill without slipping and viola. Now the issue is that the screw driver bit is stuck in the mill now. Not really an issue, as I can't see me ever wanting to hand crank it every again. Just have to make the the drill is charged for brew day.
