I don't have one, but have been using a 3-roller Crank-and-Stein for about 6 years and would highly recommend one.

Great mill, probably the, or one of the best available! The corona mills represent the other end of the spectrum pricewise.

Lots of options in between as well.

If you're on a budget and don't want to spend much, +1 on the coronas. I bought a victoria (just another brand that makes this style) for $20 shipped a couple months back. With some quick adjustments, eg adding washers and replcing cotter pin with bolt, I am getting 75-80% eff on every batch now.
I actually enjoy milling the grains by hand, maybe takes 20 minutes to grind 10lbs? Not very long.

Free 2 day shipping for prime members too.

Be prepared to make those modifications to it though, because when I first got it I thought it was a piece of **** because it was so inconsistent. Then I read up online about it, went to the hardware store and bought .50c worth of parts, and I love it now.

Yep, I've got this one and love it! 2 or 3 washers on each side and a bolt where the handle goes, mount inside of a bucket, and you're good to go! Just check out the ugly junk corona mill thread for ideas on how to mount it and such, very helpful!
