Q: I am looking for a roller mill to do a first crush on raw oats and barley in order to remove hulls for subsequent grinding for cereal or flour. Will this product provide a coarse setting that will be sufficient to crack the grain without pulverizing it so that hulls can be winnowed off?
A: we have not tested the item with raw oats or barely to give a 100% answer that it would work for that purpose. The design of the mill is for slightly more brittle malted wheat rye or barely
Q: Is this unit capable of handling corn?
A: this mill is not recommended for use with whole kernel or cracked corn
Q: Ok for corn
A: We do not recommend the mills we sell for cracking corn
Q: Is there a board that fits the bottom?
A: The mill will ship with a metal base designed to fit over a 5 gallon bucket. You could remove that and create a board or wooden base using the holes marked for the screws on the metal base as a template
Q: My mill technically works, but it is taking about 45 minutes to mill 10 pounds of grain. I don't know exactly what the problem is, but it seems the grain won't feed to the rollers if the drill is going with any speed at all. Is there a fix for this?
A: checking to make sure the passive roller not attached to the drive shaft, is moving freely with no grain in the mill one be one thing to check. We recommend using a .034-.036" gap setting for the best crush on most grains. If running a finer crush and the drill speed is moving too fast, it will allow the kernels to sit on top of the rollers and will not pull through as well as a slightly wider setting with a slower speed
Q: Will this grind halfed dried peas and other mix grains to a pig or chicken food consistency?
A: this mill is designed for use with malted wheat, rye and barley. We do not recommend its use for whole kernel or cracked corn or large kernel items
Q: Do you have any mills that will work for corn?
A: We do not currently carry mills suited for milling corn

Q: There are conflicting answers to the question about whether the Crop Duster has case hardened steel rollers. Multiple answers state that this is true and that the roller mechanism is the same as in the Cereal Killer, however the most recent answer from 7/18/20 now says that the Crop Duster does NOT have case hardened rollers and calls them just "304 Stainless steel". Can you please clarify this and confirm that the Crop Duster has been down-graded, no longer shipping with case hardened rollers as indicated in prior answers? Also, it would be helpful if the prior answers were updated so that they are not contradictory to prevent further confusion.
