I think I figured out the problem guys. Turns out I never thought to actually stick an allen
wrench in the little hole and turn it! That's the screw! Sorry to trouble you with this. Thanks

So I decided to motorize my barley crusher, and I've decided to direct-drive it, using a

Wouldn't the temp range be about the same for the MT and the HLT? Doesn't the device need some
