Hello fellow brewmonkeys,
Just got the Barley Crusher from the man in brown..W00T!1!
Did any of you fellow owners leave the weird O-ring on the roller, or can you just ditch it. It doesn't seem to have a purpose.
Thanx in advance.

What I thought.
I'm still amazed at over a year since joining how freaking fast new threads get replied to here. Outstanding.
Totally ditch it. I left it on and I believe it locked up my mill and ended up dumping a good 1/2lb or so of grains on the garage floor.
I've run around 200lbs of grains through mine with it still attached as I didn't see any reason to remove it. Like the others said, it ensures the passive roller will spin when the drive roller moves.
If it's not broken why fix it?
+1 remove it... mine fell off (ripped) and became part of my mash on the second batch.
Didn't cause a problem, obviously, but...
