Just received my Mockmill 100 a couple of days ago. Went through the setup video a few times, took the mill apart to be sure there were no shipping locks in it. Took the top stone off, and put it back on careful that the springs were in place, screwed on the top stone until it resisted and then backed it up a quarter turn or so, and set the mill up. I set the blades very coarse. When I put white rice through, it locked the motor. It locked it tightly enough that I had to use a hammer with a block of wood on the lever to loosen. I set it even coarser, and it locked again. I finally set it so course it hardly ground at all. I ran it through that way a couple of times and very gradually adjusted it finer and finer.
Is this normal behavior, or is there something I’m likely doing wrong?
I assume that wheat would not lock the mill even at a very fine setting (when the stones just click).
Would I be smarter to get the 200?
