Abstract: In recent days, the area of nanomaterial synthesis has been very attractive due to the distinguished physicochemical properties which can be modified with a different nanostructure and morphology. In this present investigation, a simple and unique approach on fabrication and testing of homemade ball milling has been developed for laboratory use. In the set-up, the gears have been used to provide positive drive over the container by meshing teeth with driver and driving shaft. Just by changing the position of gears horizontally, the different sized container can be mounted for the same set-up based on the requirement. Container was made of stainless-steel metal; it was then threaded on both sides to suit the stainless-steel caps using a lath system and made easy for cleaning container. Reduction of size of the Fe2O3 particles was achieved in short period of time. The particle size of pure and ball milled samples from scanning electron microscope was 227-36 nm. Whereas, the particle analyzer measurement shows that particle size ranges from 230-22 nm.
