That is the one I bought a few months back. I have done 4 batches with it so far and no complaints.

I had to cut off a good portion of the lower bucket's flare to get the crank to still work. Which was a good thing because I had a drill issue one day and strike was heating, some grain already crushed, etc.

You guys who have lids on the top, just a word of caution that may or may not apply to everyone...I have had to adjust the gap settings on the fly at times depending on kernel size, speed, etc. Especially if you grind multiple different grains at once. I constantly check the crush and tweak if needed. Reason being is twice now I've had grain that was uncrushed, maybe 5% of the bill, and either had to run it back through or get crappy efficiency.

Has anyone ordered this exact one? Since I have prime, it might be a better option even though it's a bit more expensive.

This is the cheapest that I have found.

You guys are getting way to technical to still fall under "ugly junk"! I aint got no lid or containment bucket! I still tie a trash bag around the grinding plates of my Corona. It's a fun little dance trying to keep the grinding plates from grabbing the bag, but that's what makes it ugly junk! Then I just pick up the bag and dump'er in to the MLT!

Cheers friends!

I do have a bucket, but use a garbage bag over the top of the whole shebang to keep the dust and flying barley in. My latest brewday involved some extra work when my bag got wrapped around the outer grinding plate's tightening rod thing (very technical description I know). Had to pick shreds of plastic out of the grist after cutting the tightly-wound plastic off. All part of the adventure, I suppose.

Don't bother picking them out. Just consider them as Lautering Medium!

No lid here, either. I have a modified milk jug over the plates to keep it all channeled downward. And even though it's mostly a hands-free operation, the use of a milk-crate, 2x4's, two bungee cords, 5gal buckets and a water jug makes it plenty ugly-junk, me thinks.
