Q: I have an older version of this grain mill with the wood base. The mill got wet yesterday during a brew session and I left it out to dry. I checked it today and the rollers are covered in rust!!! Are there replacement rollers available or is there a way to removed the rust? Is difficult to get in the teeth of the roller to clean it.
A: if oxidation builds up the rollers can be cleaned with a wire brush or SOS pad type material to remove the oxidation. Replacement roller assemblies are available for special order at a cost of $45 plus shipping fees
Q: The Cereal Killer Mill arrived with the blue film over all of the hopper, inside and out. Probably a dumb question, but do I remove all of it? Can’t find any info on here or the forums regarding. Thanks!
A: The blue film is left in place during shipping as we received feedback that the hoppers were arriving very scratch when it was removed in house. It will not harm the mill to leave it in place but is designed to be peeled or remvoed before use.
Q: Anyone know what size screws hold the baseplate to the mill body?
A: The screw diameter is 3/16"
Q: The nut that connects the handle to the arm came off of my mill. Could you please tell me the size of the screw that goes from the handle to the arm so I can replace the nut? I keep having to re-tighten the handle after about 20 rotations or the handle comes off.
A: the nut measures 3/16" ID to look for a screw to mate with that opening size
Q: I would like to crush dried whole kernal corn. Would this work for that purpose? I like doing heritage corns, bloody butcher, it seems to hard and I want something that would hold up to consistent use.
A: This mill would not have a gap setting enough for whole kernel corn and is not recommended for use with Corn
Q: Will this unit grind for fine flour? Or do you have a better unit for my needs? I will be grinding amaranth, wheat, barely and buckwheat. Thank you for your help
A: This mill would not be designed or able to grind for flour
Q: Motor speed you recommend is 300RPM... what is the torque required... we need that to determine the Hp requirement for the motor.
Q: How long is the sell for the cereal kill grain mill?
A: The mills have been on sale at the $99.99 price for some time and the sale cost would likely extend at least until months end but is subject to change at any time
Q: Will this mill cut oat groats into anything like steel cut oats? Bought a bag of the whole groats by mistake.
A: The mill is designed for use for cracking whole kernel barley, rye and wheat. It may be possible to use for crushing the oats but would not steel roll them by design
Q: Why is the base in these grid mills always square one end, & curved on the other? Please reply. Thank you
A: This is typically to give the user an area to grab hold of when lifting off of a bucket, since a completely rounded base, would require grabbing onto other parts of the mill, like the hopper, which could pose damage if using these area to lift it off of a bucket or top of a kettle we would be milling grains into
Q: Will this machine crush Oats ...?
A: The mill can handle rye, oats wheat and barley
Q: What's needed to run this with a hand drill?
A: Just the drill itself and the mill. The stem where the handle connects on is 3/8" and would fit the chuck on the drill where the bits are normally inserted
Q: Hello, I'm interested in a grain mill. It looks like the cereal killer model is better suited to last. I read that the barley crusher model tends to wear out the rollers whereas the cereal killer has ball bearings. Just curious if it's easy to adapt the cereal killer to have a bigger hopper?
A: At this time the Cereal Killer model would only have a 7lb hopper available.
Q: Is base included?
A: This would include the new metal base with the product
Q: I want to crush woody seed. I also want to cut up dried herb. Will this work for both?
A: I don't see why it would not work for both of those things. This was designed for grain though so we cannot guarantee it would work well for seeds and dried herbs.
