Default grain mill

I am looking into purchasing a grain mill for home use and would like input, suggestions and reviews if possible. I think i just want to stick to the basic hand crank model for now since i am only 2 brews down and will be sticking with partial grain for a while. all suggestions and input is welcomed. thanks

I've got a barley crusher that came with a hand crank, but you can remove the crank handle and hook a drill right up to it, no adjustments needed.

And if you want to go inexpensive, here's a thread detailing how to acquire and install a Corona-type mill:

I apologize, I was just being a smart ass. In the future, the Search function on this forum works fairly well. I always use the "Search Forum with Google" option.

Here's the grain mill I am getting for Christmas. It met my requirements, and it's budget friendly.

I'm with you - I'm one of the few (only?) who enjoys using the hand grinder, there's just something about it. I brew all-grain a couple of times of month, fwiw. The mill I use is a Malt Mill http://schmidling.com/maltmill.htm fwiw.
