Default Is this the Corona Mill?

Hello everyone,
This may be a silly question but I want to make sure I get the right one if I end up buying one. Is this the Corona mill that people are using?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._email_1p_1_ti

I've been doing AG for awhile now and want to get into grinding my own grain but have a pretty tight budget. This one for sale is usually $100 but it's down to $27 now so I want to jump on it if it's the right one.

What do you think?

Thanks

Someone else will likely chime in, but I'm fairly certain the Victoria mill is being used by a number of people.

That is a commonly used one and afaik the Victory is one of many Corona "style" mills. I have one that looks exactly the same. I got it for a Christmas present so I don't know which mine is and I threw out the box a long time ago.

BTW those are ALWAYS available in the $25 - $35 range

They are typically in the $25-35 range however they typically do not come with free shipping. Shipping is pretty high on those due to weight. I was going to purchase one earlier this year and after shipping the total would have been close to $65. I went ahead and bought a cheap roller mill instead.

Yep, as others have already indicated, that's a Corona-type mill.
If you use eBay and are patient, you can usually find one for around that price with shipping in a week or so.

Ordered it today with Amazon Prime free shipping and I should have it on my doorstep sometime on Friday. Looking forward to grinding my own grain. Now to do some research on a bigger hopper build and station for it.

Thanks again everybody.

That's not a victoria mill, it's a Chinese knockoff. Victoria mills are made in Columbia I believe.
