When I purchased mine from Amazon, all the negative reviews were from people trying to make finely ground flour.

Well I stand corrected. I thought he could pull it off. Hopefully he didn't buy one on my crappy advise.

Nope... thought I would wait out a few other responses first. Hmm... I may need to rethink this plan. Maybe this mill for cracking flax seed and an actual grain mill for making flour.
Thanks for all the replies guys...

Yeah, you can actually buy the stones that fit on them,

Sunshine Corona Stone Conversion Kit



Quote:
Turn that old Corona mill you bought into a quality Stone Flour Mill

The regular Corona Mill is fine for grinding course cereal; however, if you desire to grind fine flour and get it the first time through, you need our Sunshine Corona Stone Conversion Kit.

The kit includes everything you need to turn your regular Corona into the finest stone hand mill, capable of grinding your grains, like wheat, into the finest, lightest flour you can produce. Think about it – no more running your grain through the mill five times and still ending up with a coarse cereal.

You may purchase the stones only, and use the mill with the original auger, but we recommend that you also purchase the optional Modified Auger. The Modified Auger has been engineered to provide just the right feeding rate for the finer grinding milling stones. Using your old (unmodified) auger will make your mill much harder to turn.

With the Sunshine Corona Stone Conversion Kit, it’s like having two mills in one. Leave your mill as it is and you have a steel burr for grinding course cereal or any soft, oily grains or beans. Or change it to the stone burrs, which will allow you to grind fine flour in one pass.

Should have my Discount Tommy mill this week, I'll get some pics up when it's done. Leaning towards a two bucket with some type of hopper extension, just not sure what yet.

Thanks for posting that link Revvy, I had no idea this existed. Has anyone tried out this stone conversion kit? My wife would love to grind flour with the corona mill.

Thanks, I loved the movie Dogma. It was funny though, I found the pic when I was actually looking for something serious about spirituality and beer, the quotes by Martin Luther and other early church leaders as quoted in the book "The search for god an guinness" and this popped up in a blog referencing those quotes.

I have half of the stone conversion kit on a mill I pieced together from two broken mills. The bigger/flat/part that turns is the stone part and the flour it makes is definately finner.
