Q: I bought this mill along with the motorized kit. For some reason the coupling will not fit onto the grain mill shaft. It fit on the motor shaft perfectly. Is there a different coupling for different mills?

Q: two mills under consideration the crop duster and cereal killer - I brew 2-3 times a month. Which mill do you like and why?

A: The Cereal killer is currently only available with a 7lb hopper at this time
Q: Are the rollers smooth? or fluted?

Q: Hi. Do you know what material is used for the Cereal Killer rollers? Do you have any opinions on the Cereal Killer vs the Crop Duster? Thanks

Q: Is the handle that connects to arm indexed so it locks and doesn't spin if the fastener becomes loose?
A: The handle locks onto the drive shaft with a bolt that fits into a recess on the drive shaft.
Q: I currently own this purchased from you. In the process of moving I lost the base that it mounts too, is there any way to purchase just this part?

A: The rollers at their widest can adjust to .100"
Q: I bought one of these mills a couple of months ago and am just now getting around to using it. Do you offer a "filler" to close the gaps between the hopper and rollers so that unmilled grains will not sneak through? I found that quite a few unmilled grains slipped through, particularly when first loading the hopper. I fabricated a couple of cardboard flaps, but am looking for a better solution.
A: At this time we do not currently have added flaps or a baffle to add to the hopper at this time
Q: Do you have to clean the mill before first use
A: We would recommend at least giving the mill a quick dusting before use. This will knock off any foreign particles.

A: This mill would not be designed or able to grind for flour
Q: Hi, could you provide the shipping package dimensions and weight? thanks
A: 13x13x13" weight is 11lbs
Q: Part way through a "mill job" my mill stops grabbing the grain and just "free wheels". I have to dump everything out and put it all back in or poke a piece of wood down and disturb the lay of the grain for it to start again. (Some times it will "catch" again after a few minutes on its own)
Is there any trick to keep the feed working?
A: The usual culprits with this would be the rollers moving too quickly if being used with a drill or a motor. Running the drill at about half peed would allow the knurls on the roller to catch a bit easier. Otherwise widening the gap setting lightly if using smaller grains or recipes with wheat or other adjuncts would be best. a 2nd pass can be made afterwords if the resulting crush comes out a bit too coarse
Q: Are the rollers made of stainless steal?
A: The rollers are made of a case hardened steel
Q: In a response to a question you say that the shaft is 3/8”. However, in the description of the product it says “crank shaft has a 10mm diameter”. What is the true measurement supposed to be. The .5mm makes a difference for the spider coupler I need to connect to a motor.
A: With a 2nd check, the outer diameter of the shaft is 3/8"
