I like mine. Factory setting seemed too big, so I ratcheted it down. The factory didn't have the adjustment knobs on the same, so the indicators point to two different sizes is my only complaint, but I wouldn't trust the markings much either way. Get some gauges.

Ok well I've been able to get grain to start to pull but apparently my drill sucks ass... great. Not enough torque to crush... Time for an upgrade :/ Serves me right for buying a dinky 7.2v for the sake of being in a pinch...

How many of you have it drill operated? What power of drill are you using? 12, 14.4V, 18?

I use an 18v because I had one. I would bet that a 14 would work fine.

If you want to save money, Harbor Freight sells some cheap corded ones.

I tried a 12v Dewalt to see what it would do. On low torque setting it made it through about 3lbs on a full battery with a gap of .039 before it was drained. With my 1/2" 120v Milwaukee it went through the grain like fresh picked corn

If there's anyone without feeler gauges you can use a credit card to get the gap to around .036

I was wondering about a standard credit card, thanks! I'll be stopping to get probably an 18v tonight and see how it goes. Thanks guys!

Just Got mine cleaned it with mineral spirits and oiled bearings with 30w motor oil, replaced all screws with metric cap screws and lock tight, added nylon washers to nondriven roller, set gap with credit card, and ran 11# like a champ
