Yeah, I've ran less than 10 batches and I'm still playing with the grind. Whenever I crank it in to grind wheat, I have to reset the mill for barley. I think I ended up with maybe 1% whole grains, there are a lot of whole or nearly whole husks, too. I'll take an OG here in a few minutes, but I bet I hit the 75% I'd planned on.
Edit: whoops, yeah, more like 70% on this go round.

And lawn schman, I've got acres of that crap.

I watched a documentary about the Heineken brewery and they have 3 different grinds. Fine, medium and coarse. They do that to extract the max sugar from the grain and also to give it a good base so it doesnt get stuck. Since i BIAB i try and aim for fine/flour. If you are using a mash ton i would make my specialty grains coarse to medium and my base malt fine.

Please tell me if i am doing things wrong!!!

I always say: Grind as fine as you can as long as you have SOME husks that are of appropriate size to not pass through your lautering filter (manifold/braid). My Corona puts out mostly flour on one side and more husks on the other. If I find ANY uncrushed grain, it's too loose.

Thanks for the reply but before I even posted I looked at both of those ads. Discount Tommy wants $86 dollars shipping to where I am. I'm not spending $100 on one of these mills.

Everytime I try to look around the cost grows quite a bit beyond $20. It seems like all the places selling these mills are out of the states and that inflates the shipping quite a bit to Canada.
