Default Grain Mill Recomendations

I am looking to get a mill soon. Any suggestions as to the best one to get regarding durability and lifetime of use. I dont want to spend the $ on a cheaper one if a year down the road i hate it.

Monster Mill with 2" diameter rollers (like the MM2-2.0)...

There's more than a few posts on this subject. Next time, use the search feature and read what's already been posted. There's even some threads at the bottom of this page now related to this.

Thanks for the lesson on how to use a forum. I was looking at some of those and they have some pretty old posts. There are more then a few new companies advertising mills and i wanted to get updated feedback.

There is at least one from within the past month (roughly). If you consider that old, then you have deeper issues. There are several threads from this year alone too.

I just got my barley crusher. First time crushing my grain it worked like a charm. Nice crush. Didn't malt condition but next time I will try it..

I've been happy with my Barley Crusher. Plus it has a lifetime warranty on it, so if something ever broke, it's not like I'd have to go buy a new one.

i was thinking about ordering a Barley Crusher but keep reading that there customer service sucks, and they dont do much for the "lifetime warranty" if my mill goes and i want to be dont think i will be to happy, or wanting to wait 3 weeks for some copy and paste response. think i might look for something else. there are post all over about there bad customer service.
