Default Corona Mill Gap

I know it's not very accurate, but have any of you that use a corona mill and have it "dialed in" measured the gap? I came by one for free, so I figured I'd give it a try until I can afford a roller mill. My LHBS's idea of a good crush seems to be if all the grain makes it through their mill unscathed!

Thanks.

I just checked mine (it's a Porkert) and the teeth on the plates are only about 1MM apart. It varies a little bit because it doesn't rotate cleanly but that was the widest spacing I found.

Sounds like the gap is too wide.

While turning the handle slowly screw in the adjustment. Once it's where you want it toss the stuff you have in the holding pot/tank back in the hopper.

I just put a little grain in and adjust it as I slowly turn to what looks perfect, then toss the rest in and fire up the drill!
