Default New Barley crusher question

Just received my new barley crusher with an order of supplies from AHS. What's the deal on running a half-pound of grain thru it and throwing it out? I didn't purchase any extra grains to throw away.

IIRC to clean the assembly oil or other debris off the rollers before brew use.

If you have oatmeal, corn flakes, wheaties type cereal around, just tighten up the gap some and run that through.

In the coffee industry our go to grinder cleaner is minute rice. It picks up extraneous oil perfectly and works very well as a dessicant as it goes through the mill.
