I ruled Crankandstein out once I saw the "About us" section of their web page...very unprofessional.
Whoa.

This where the 3-roller malt mill came from, and I continue to design, manufacture and sell the most advanced homebrew mills available. The quality and value are unmatched by others who merely resell stuff they buy mass produced. Full-time craftsmanship is in short supply these days, and there are plenty of hucksters ready to sell you a poorly thought-out toy that won't work well or last long. In a niche market, too much competition can drive out some of the best. It's already happened to the Valley Mill and the small Automatic mill. If you support constant improvement rather than cost cutting, then welcome aboard. The business plan here is recession proof, because quality sells itself and we're glad to help you whenever you're ready.

No idea, but reading it immediately turned me off to his product. So, I supported his main competition instead...it made my decision easier!

Not very eloquent as Crankenstein could have wrote that much better and said the same thing. It is true thou that a few of the products sold are mass produced and probably actually made in China.

I'm sold on the detent adjustments they have.

Very true, the detent feature is cool, but not really necessary. It's easy enough to use a feeler gauge, plus there's a more infinite range of adjustments and you're not limited to .005" increments (not that this is a huge amount anyway).

I have a MM3, 1.5. I have 3 to 4 thousand pounds through it. This is what it was made to do, it show no signs of where.
