Machined-Steel Grain MillBitterroot Tool & Machine's GrainMaker mills are formed, not cast, in their Montana machine shop. Every part of the mill including the body, handle, hopper, stainless steel GrainBreaker auger and high quality alloy grinding burrs are made on-site, so owners Randy and Bonnie Jones can guarantee the quality. Many of the GrainMaker's parts are machined from solid material, including the dust cover, adjustment knob, main shaft and GrainBreaker auger.
The burr designs û one stationary and one that rotates - are owner Randy Jones' unique design. They've proven to be a great choice; in more than ten years of selling the mills, the company has yet to replace a part. The GrainMaker has sealed roller bearings for smooth, maintenance-free operation, an adjustable pressure control knob for coarse to fine grinding and a handle extension for better leverage. It takes about four minutes to hand grind a four cup hopper full of wheat berries.
The mill easily handles all types of grain and seeds, from tiny flax seeds to kernels of corn. It also makes quick work of oily products like coffee and peanuts. The powder coated finish and hardened steel burrs clean up easily. The mills weigh twenty pounds and must be bolted or clamped to a surface before use. They can be operated with a motor if you prefer.
GrainMaker mills come with a lifetime warranty. They can be ordered direct online at www.grainmaker.com for $425; the optional clamp is also available. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
