Next I installed the inner burr in through this hole from the bottom and threaded the shaft up through the plate into the proper position. I was pleased with the centering and the reasonably snug fit
I have included a photo compilation of couple pictures to help explain it better. I would rather buy a piece to add to my Skerton from someone with access to a tool and die fabrication shop - I only have my (actually my wife's tin snips) tin snips and the lid from a can. The lid is round, the lid is hard, the lid is thick in the one area it needs to be (the intersection of the vertical shaft and the horizontal stabilizer) and is free.
I built only one plate and I stopped tinkering when the grind became acceptable. I am sure there is a better way but I can't think of it. I did see another vendor named Orphan Espresso offer these grinders modified with something similar but certainly more polished for a while. Now I think only a kit is available so maybe try this first if you are handy.
