Do you happen to know, or can you easily measure, the specifics on these set screws? Otherwise, my method is trial and error.

Thanks!

Got mine yesterday. The bin is a bit flimsier than the barley crusher I have, but the rollers look good. Slightly different setup but I like the markings on the roller housing showing gap size. My bin was detached when it arrived. I just put it back on and tightened the screws, but the way it's designed the bin part is not all that securely fastened. Haven't milled with it yet, will try it out this weekend.

Used it yesterday. It cranked through my grain bill better and smoother than my barley crusher! The only thing I noticed is that I'm going to need to check the gap manually. I think the default gap resulted in a little too fine grind.

I can now say that it's a nice unit, worth every penny. The flimsy bin is the only knock.

Woot! Just got my shipping notice. Here tomorrow. Will be ready to go this w/e. Testing with an IIPA. 20lbs+ should give a nice test.
