You all are using the Mill wrong. Some of you are actually putting a serious strain on the grinding process. I've ground crack wheat into flour, sesame seeds, flax seeds, nuts, dried pepper pods into finely ground cayenne pepper standards; I'm not kidding. Chill nuts & seeds before grinding because it can turn into nut butter.
First of all, you cannot just tighten the knot in the front of the Mill all the way and expect a fine ground. Adjust the knot loosely to get a course ground, then tighten the knot, secure it with the wing knot; that is the one thats located closest to the first plate; it spins. Return the course ground grains into the hopper & grind a second time. Release the spinning wing knot before any tightening.
If you all want a finer grind; then put it back in the hopper again & tighten the knot some more and grind a third time. You tighten the front knot as to how fine you want the grind.
You all cannot have the two plates grinding against each other without anything between the two plates, surely you'll get metal fillings because the teeth are being worn down.
Grinding the grains might be time consuming; yes. But you all are giving the Mills an undeserved name due to your inabilities to operate a hand crank Mill.
I have been trying to find a way to grind chaga that I harvest. Several nights ago I started grinding chaga in my electric coffee grinder and after doing close to a pound, my coffee grinder broke. To me, dried chaga is like petrified wood! All of a sudden I thought about the hand grinder and wondered if it would be able to handle grinding something so hard. I should have started with the hand grinder to begin with! It's grinding with ease!
I have no doubt that it will be able to grind any grain that I put through it. So far, I've only had it set to do a medium grind, similar to store bought coffee, but I was so happy with it that I just ordered another one! I plan on dedicating one to chaga and coffee and the other one to grains and rice for flours. I would recommend this grinder, especially to preppers, and those going back to a more simple lifestyle.
the cast iron construction is as sturdy as I expect, and although the hopper does not create a super secure connection, in that fine powders will fall through the cracks of where it connects to the grinder. I had no problem with it falling off.
I put a load of rice through it to break it in. I did not find any metal shavings in the output, but then I wouldn't be surprised if there was, as this was newly casted iron, and would takes some breaking in.
I put a few cups of rice through it about ten times, tightening the adjustment screw each time. I quickly learned to loosen that winged nut and then tighten that rod with the eye loop at the end. That rod is the real adjustment screw, and the winged nut just holds it into place and keeps it from slipping during use.
I did not get super fine all purpose flour from grinding it, but then I also was not expecting it to do that without some serious pressure.
So I think the majority of the negative reviews were from people who had misplaced ideas of what exactly this type of grinder was capable of producing, and the rest couldn't figure it out without a 50 page manual.
