Default Corona Mill or Pasta Maker Mill

Have read the seemingly endless threads (ugly corona mill and Using a pasta maker to mill grain) and trying to decide which way to go. I think I’m leaning toward the Corona at this point. Does anyone have experience with both and which do you prefer and why? Also, other than on-line, where can you buy the Coronas? I know the pasta makers can be had at the hobby shop type stores, but most of the Corona references I’ve seen have been on-line. Would like to actually see it before buying. Thanks!

Edit: will be doing BIAB so stuck sparge from fine crush not an issue

I have a pasta maker and I couldn't get grain to feed through it with the slick rollers but my cheap Corona style knock-off works great.

Corona would be a lot better than a pasta roller.
