Default Corona Grain Mill????

Can anyone tell me where the best place to buy a nice cheap Corona mill would be with the big hopper attached to it.........

Thanks

GABrew check this out http://www.crankandstein.com/cgm-bcc.htm
I don't know what is exactly cheap to you but I bought the CGM-2D and had some sheet metal buddies of mine make a hopper for me and I love it I used it this past weekend and got a great crush.

Well over $100 is a little too steep.......I have read where people have gotten the Corona's for around $25 or so.

Do you have a Northern Tool nearby? They were on super discount there last year for $14...I got one shipped for $26. It doesn't have a large hopper (~1lb capacity), but it should be easy to modify.

Most of the ones I've seen outside of this sale are ~$40-50. At that pricepoint you certainly need to consider all your options.

I'd go with trying to find one at a Northern. I paid about $50 for my adjustable Corona mill that can hold about 1.5 pounds of grain from Midwest Supplies or something like it. If you can avoid buying from a HBS, you will find that you can usually pay MUCH less...

Is that the same Northern tool that sells construction equipment? I'm confused.

Yeah, they had them online for $15 a while back, then dropped them to $12. I just looked, and apparently they don't sell them anymore. At least online. You might go check one out, if there's one in your area.
