The 2" roller models come with 1/2" shafts. It was just another item on the list of reasons I went with the MM2-2.0 model.

The MM looks and sounds bombproof. What about warranty issues? Any flaws or recommendations on upgrades?

I've seen what C&S offers... IMO, the Monster Mill is a bigger, beefier, more 'balls to the wall' mill. I'm sure support from C&S would be in line with what I've seen from Monster, or at least I would hope so.

If I had a choice of mills from either company, with no dollar amounts posted (or not paid by me), I'd still go with the Monster Mill... I might even up it to the MM3-2.0 model.

I bought a $25 corona style mill that has gotten me 80% efficiency on my past three brews. No complaints here. It is an easy build to mount the corona mill on a five gallon bucket and replace the hand crank with a shank for drill attachment.

That's fine if you're grain bills will fit in one 5 gallon bucket (or one bucket in general)... For mine, the crushed grain MIGHT fit into one ale pail, on the lower ABV, 6.5-7 gallons into primary. For anything above my lower ABV range, I use a pair of ~24qt buckets to hold the crushed grain (so that neither is filled too far). With the Monster Mill (or any with a base) it's easy to move it to the second bucket.

Besides, I don't need to make a shield for the Monster Mill in order to prevent grain from flying all over the place as I mill.

I have the MM-3 with the 1.5 rollers and I too wish I'd gotten the 1/2" shaft. My mill works, I put 1/3hp motor on it and I mill 50lb bags in minutes. I think it will out live me. I run it slow 100rpms, the crush is great. It was hard to ajust the gap at first.

I have the mm3 2.0 and currently doing 1bbl grain crushes on it.. Very nice I might say ! Working great with the add on motor attachment and also running slow rpm.. I would Recommend it. Also Agree that once you have fine tuned the gap everything will flow like a period
