COUNTRY LIVING GRAIN MILL - Main Page

country living mill country living grain mill, hand grain millThe auger that comes with the Country Living Mill resembles a large spring around the grinder drive shaft in the feed housing. This auger produces a minimum amount of drag on the crank wheel and is enough to move small seeds such as wheat through the feed chamber to the grinding plates or burrs. As the burrs themselves are designed for small seeds, the small grain auger that comes with the grinder doesn't adequately move large seeds through the mill in an efficient manner. For those of you who wish to grind larger seeds such as beans and corn, you'll need the larger auger designed for this purpose.

Slide the Bean and Corn Auger over the drive shaft, recessed end first, over the top of the spring. Ensure the auger's key way slides over the top of the just installed drive key. This locks the drive shaft to the auger, insuring they rotate together. Install a second key in the groove of the drive shaft and slide it down to the auger. Now, reinstall the rotating burr, insuring the key slides into the key way of the burr. Lastly, install the washers and the threaded adjustment nut. All of this takes maybe 2 minutes and is really a simple operation.

When grinding large seeds, you may first try increasing the gap between the burrs so there is as much as 1/8 inch gap between the plates. This will grind the beans into chunks. Then put these chunks through the grinder a second time with your burrs set to a fine setting. This will give you a nice, fine flour.
