How to Clean a Country Living grain mill

One of the most widely used grain mills is the country living grain mill, it is known for its stable build and lifetime warranty. Every so often when you use your grain mill frequently you will need to clean it out to keep it functioning as properly as possible. Luckily cleaning the Country living grain mills are very easy to clean.

First you want to disassemble the grinder, by removing the adjusting knob off of the front of the unit. Make sure that you don't lose the small square piece that keeps the front plate form spinning with the shaft. Behind the knob you will find some washers and the burr. You can take out the burr and use a small brush to clean out any flour than may have gotten caught inside.

Some times you will need to clean the grinding plates this can be done by using the wrench that came with the mill to remove the screws that hold the stationary plate in place. When the plates have been disconnected they can be taken out of the unit for a more thorough cleaning. If you wash them in water make sure that you dry them well immediately to prevent them from rusting. These grinding mills were not made to be washed in water, therefore just using a damp cloth should be thorough enough to clean the whole unit.

When you have finished washing and drying the pieces its time to assemble your mill. Before you put the plate back inside make sure that there is nothing inside the unit because the plate will not reattach if anything is in the way, all the mounting hole have to align before you move on to the next part of the mill. Then follow the disable instruction the reverse order, replace the burr, washers and knob. Wallah! you now have a clean grain mill ready for use.

What is Quarter-Sawn Lumber?

Quarter-sawing is a method of milling trees into lumber. Quarter-sawn lumber is highly sought after, particularly in certain species such as oak or maple, where look of the grain in the wood is accentuated by the method of cutting the tree. While rip-sawing is the most efficient (and common) method of milling, quarter-sawing is more difficult to cut but yields much more stable lumber. Because it is more difficult to cut and there is more waste, quarter-sawn lumber is considerably more expensive than rip-sawn material.
