My only concern is the aluminum rollers. It might be fine but you can get SS rollers for the same price.

it seems from the description that the shell is aluminum and the rollers are "knurled Hardened Steel Dual Roller"

ALL NEW genuine ball bearing Shaft Bearrings for durability
Looks really well made!

I wonder if the ball bearings will prevent the passive roller from stalling the way Barley Crushers do after grain dust builds up in the bushings that they use.

Anyone using one of these?

This is very nice!

The BC rollers are steel, but not hardened.

I have one on my amazon wish list right now, so if I get one for Christmas I'll report back here on New Years after trying it out.

There's a new review on amazon, it seems the buyer liked the mill and the customer service. I'm ordering mine tonight, will update thread when I get and test mine ..

I watched the video on millars' website... it looked well made enough. http://youtu.be/pmsdXr0Yxoc
I too had a $50 amazon gift card, with shipping my total cost to me was $47...
