The Country Living Mill is without a doubt the most rugged manual grinder on the market today. It is the only grinder that uses ball-bearings that I am aware of. Most use brass bushings. Many of the other grinders have only one large bushing type bearing. The Country Living Mill has two sealed ball bearings spaced far apart to increases the stability of the drive shaft and reduces bearing strain. It also turns easier saving your energy.
Made in the USA, this mill comes with a 20 year warranty and utilizes specially designed steel grinding plates. It's industrial ball bearings should supply a life time of service. It is easy to clean and has an infinite amount of adjustments for fineness or coarseness of flour. It is easy to turn by hand, but can be motorized or attached to an exercise bike for ears of operation. The mill flywheel has a V-belt groove in it for motorized operation.
In order to process a variety of grains, nuts and beans the Country Living Mill has an optional Nut & Bean Auger. This auger has wider grooves in it to allow for larger nuts and beans to be processed through the mill. If the plates become clogged while making nut butters, they are easy to remove and clean.
