I have been reading about "how to's" in the food arena, i.e. how to grind my own wheat, make my own while, etc. Most of the things I am looking at require some kind of a press or mill to do the job. Are there any multi-purpose machines out there that will do at least some of these jobs? I am not only looking to save money but also to save space and to simplify.
If you are serious, I would invest in a dedicated flour mill. They need to be a fairly heavy machine to get the job done well and last.
You can invest in a chop rite sausage stuffer and get the press basket, then it can be used for wine, honeycomb, cheese, etc.
There are solutions if you think outside the box, but sometimes the dedicated tool is worth the investment for time savings.

Thanks! Good information. I am serious, in the sense that I am pretty sure that I will be using these things for the next 10, 20 or more years - until I depart this planet (and that does not mean to hitch a ride on a comet!) I am guessing that a wheat grinder is also going to be able to handle corn and other grains, so there is a degree of multi-purposeness there. The more uses that I have for a piece of equipment and the longer I will use it, the more I can justify spending more $$ on it. Now, as you suggested, off to do my homework.
