Why three rollers? The MM-3 crushes all your grain twice, with one pass through the mill. It starts with a preliminary crush through the initial fixed gap between the top two rollers, and then ends with a pass through the second gap between the drive roller, and the bottom third roller. The initial pass slightly flattens the grain, and gets it ready for the next crush, that breaks apart the grains and loosens the starch with minimal husk damage.
Includes roller assembly, base, and steel hopper with 11 lb. capacity - just add a corded electric drill or a 3/8" crank handle for the ultimate pre-mash gristing experience.

Great mill, but from what I can tell, the item I received was previously used (at least hopper, it was dusty and it had scratch marks).
The mill is great. It does exactly what a mill is supposed to do. The grains are crushed to the proper size and the husk is left mostly intact.
Assembly was easy, except for the two in the bottom/center of the hopper, which requires a stubby screwdriver and an open-end wrench.
The base is terrible.
* The holes in it leave a LOT of play for the rollers. The alignment holes for the end pieces should either be good enough to leave the rollers with only a few thousandths of endplay or they should be slotted.
* It's easily deformed by the bolts.
* It will absorb moisture from the air, becoming even more fragile as it ages.
This base needs to be replaced with a thick/tough plastic.
Mill works fine.
NO feeler gauges or oil included as shown in picture.
I guess the only additional piece you get with this “kit” is the base.
There is a note that’s says “*Does not include pictured crank.” Maybe we need to update the pictures or text.
Mill, hopper and base is all you get.
Worked perfectly first time; no problems assembling it, as I laid-out the parts on a tabletop, identified the parts, and then followed the assembly directions.
Solid mill, I was having problems with my efficiency and narrowed it down to my crush. So glad I bought this because now I'm at a consistent 89-90%. It's easy to adjust the mill to crush whatever you want. Using my drill I can mill 15 pounds in about a minute. Very well built and easy to use. So glad I bought this.
