This is a video of my newer mods of getting the grain mill tweaked. It is working much better with the new feed tube!

I love this idea! I was just pondering this morning about alternative ways to grind grain. Definitely a "brick" to add to my list!

I think the 3rd world countries are miles ahead of us on designs, I guess because they have to use it every day.
