Default Anyone use a fox run grain mill?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fox-Run-Craf...73809611161753

Did a search on ebay for grain mill. This one and a mill with no handle came up.

That looks suspiciously similar to a pasta machine.

But it says it "crushes barely"...

Cheers

Much, much better options available...for value use a corona aka corn grinder. If you want a roller mill get out your check book.

That's not real encouraging.

Default I'll let you know...

The price is right...if it works. I can afford to check it out because if it doesn't work...I can make it right...

Impressive shop...just my opinion, the mill linked above is not a good platform to start with, except of course for a door stop.

Check out the pasta roller grain mill thread. You can get one of those for 15 bucks if you want to play.

I haven't finished reading that entire thread, I will...thanks, but the one the OP listed looks a lot like a re-branded version of the first "pasta" roller shown in that thread...

Why not just build your own and skip the re-engineering, seems like that would be cheaper and easier in the long run.

Oh wow, someone stole our idea and is now selling modded pasta mills for grain. But hey if he's machining the rollers I guess that's a plus. BUT I think I should get a commission or at least a free one, since I was the guy that provided the info that convinced folks to start making them.

Of course I could, but why re-invent the wheel, putting a knurl on the rollers is simple and all the rest of the work is done for you. I'm going to swing by Michaels and see if they still have them. As for being cheaper, I don't know. I just did a search on Micheal's and found a 50% off Coupon.

Update:
Just got back from Michael's with one, paid $14.99 for it. I'll take some photo before, during, and after my attempt to knurl the rollers. It looks like it will work fine.
