I have one of these. Will it be sufficient for running a mill like the Cereal Killer, Barley Crusher, or Crankandstein?
I have a cheap $40 Harbor Freight that runs my Monster Mill 2 just fine and the specs look the same. Should work.

Just don't run it on the hammer setting

Yes that would be fine, but to repeat, don't use the hammer setting
Just my two cents. I had a lower amp drill and I smoked it this weekend on my 3-roll crankenstein.
I ordered a 10amp drill instead that is a beast.
It is amazing how much torque is required to run a Barley Crusher on a fine setting...none of my drills will turn it at a low RPM so I just use the hand crank...it's a nice arm workout!

Would the torque requirement be less for a mill with shorter rollers, like the Crankenstein?
I use a Porter cable 18V drill with the trigger half way in on my cereal killer gapped at ~.032. get 75-80%
