I am excited to be able to get this special offer arranged for the CM community because this is one of the homesteading items my family has been hoping to get for a long time.  It is a highly regarded and reviewed grain mill and many folks absolutely love theirs.  I am looking forward to getting the kids involved in grinding the daily wheat for flour.  As a little inspiration to how this mill can be used via foot power and horse power - I have linked a few videos I have come across in my reviews of the CLGM.  Enjoy.

Satisfied Customer

I bought one of these mills while preparing for a possible Y2K event. We used it with the hand crank for the first two years, then motorized it after that. So it's been in operation for what...14 years or so.  My wife estimates that we grind between 100 and 150 pounds of wheat a year. We bought the optional auger for corn but don't like having to change it out and ended up buying a separate corn grinder. (Keep track of your "keys" [the little metal piece that sits in a groove] if you get the optional auger. We have had them get ground up. Oops. Fortunately, they are readily available at a decent hardware store.) We tried the grinder with peanuts once and it made wonderful peanut butter but the clean-up tthat was required overcame the ease of grinding so we never did it again. If we were robbed and had the opportunity to buy another grinder, we'd re-purchase this one. I have no affiliation with the company...just a satisfied user.

Just my two cents on this

Just my two cents on this grinder.  I've never used a different one, so I can't offer any comparisons, but I bought one of these about  three years ago, and am overall very satisfied.  It grinds wheat perfectly.  My wife was very skeptical at first (since she does all the cooking) that the wheat would be ground finely enough.  She says it is as good if not better than the wheat we buy in the store.  If she's doing something fine (like a cake) she'll run my ground wheat through a sifter first to improve the consistency, but other than that we all agree the grind is superior.

I didn't have as much luck grinding corn (and I did buy the auger to do so)  I could crack the corn easily, but to make corn meal seemed like it would take forever.  I've ground rye, wheat, and (not so successfully) corn.  I've never tried dehulling oats or barley so I can't really answer the questio in the above post, but I suspect dehulling oats wouldn't work so well, since they are so soft.  I imagine everything would just get gummed up.

The unit looks attractive, and it seems almost indestructible.  Plus, there is something immensely satistfying about grinding your own wheat.
