This three roller mill with aluminum hopper holds 12 pounds of malted barley, and features three 6" by 1½" knurled rollers turning in precisely machined ball bearings. Three rollers crush grain more thoroughly and evenly than a two roller mill for the most extract per pound of grain. Figure running 8 to 12 pounds per minute through this mill depending on its source of power.
Rollers are gap-adjustable at both ends and calibrations are included at both ends for easily repeatable gap settings. Gap can be set from 0 to .63", we recommend you start with .63" to see how your mill works, and then narrow the gap to .50" or so if you find any whole kernels coming through.
The steel rollers are machined to efficently grab the kernels and pull them through the mill. The detachable handcrank can be removed to install a 1/2" shaft capable electric drill (we recommend a good quality variable speed corded drill, as this mill requires some force to turn quickly, and a cheap drill will not work well).
Assembly required, you will need to screw the hopper together and screw the base to your mounting board (mounting board and mounting screws are not included, but screw holes are provided in the base for mounting). You will need 4 M6 by 20 machine screws (not included) to mount this to the optional base.
Note: For use with malted barley only, not for use with corn.

Q: First attemp at crush at the .063 alignment is coming out way finer than I want. I that the widest setting. Turning the adjustment screws either way makes the gap smaller. I must be screwing something up
A: Loosen the adjustment screws and turn the two rolller adjustment knobs until they are are .063. The gap should be wider than the thickness of a credit card. If not, something is not assembled correctly or is not right in the roller cams.

Q: Could someone be kind enough to measure the roller length and diameter? ( I have seen both 5" x 1.25" and 6" x 1.5" listed) Thanks
A: 6" long, 1.5" dia.

Q: Aren't those tabs near the crack suppose to be on the inside to guide the grain into the rollers and to shield the bearings?
A: Yes, see step 7 of the instructions for a picture of this.

Q: What country is this made in?
Built well, easy to assemble. Best way to set gap, have some old grain to waste. I used about 1/2- 3/4 of a pound. Made six adjustments from mid point to get the crush I needed. Don't use hard to mill grain such as cara or dexi pils. It might jam the mill. When you do have to mill cara pils or dexi pils mix them evenly with your base grain before you fill the hopper.
I have only used it once, it did a super job at the factory settings.
I love it!
Well so far I haven't used it yet but I put it together and it looks great. Shipped quick too. Got it two days after I ordered. Seems to operate good to, I am looking forward to using this. But one thing I noticed was the instructions aren't entirely correct. Actually I see the picture here it's also not assembled correctly. The two little pieces on the bottom outside of the hopper are supposed to go in the inside. They help feed the grain toward the center of the rollers.
Great mill, but difficult to assemble
I recently purchased this mill after doing my research on other options, For the price, this three-roller mill seemed like my best choice. As usual, the mill arrived very promptly -- 2 days -- and it was in two boxes. All of the stainless metal surfaces were protected with plastic film, which was easily removed. Putting this mill together was a bit of a challenge -- the instructions aren't super clear, and it took me several attempts to get everything right. The screws and bolts, for example, need to be assembled first without tightening everything, or pieces of the hopper won't fit together neatly. In some cases, you need both a phillips screwdriver and adjustable wrench to tighten them, and this is difficult in some tight places. Once assembled, it looks great, and operates as expected. Adjusting the gap on the rollers was easy and straightforward, and I got great results from my first batch of grain milled with this product.
