Has anyone bought a Millar's Barley Mill?  I think they've only got the one model and while it's got everything you need, hopper, bucket, etc., I think it's kind of pricey at $280-300.  Would be interested to hear anyone's input on it though.

Wow, that’s the one I want.  Looks the business. 

I have emailed them to see if they ship across the pond.

I have one of their older models that was around $170 and it works much better than my old Barley Crusher.

I’ve requested a shipping quote to the U.K.   Hopefully I won’t have to sell a kidney.

Based on the experiences of others that I've heard,  I would not go with any 3-roller mill that's not gear-driven.  Nobody seems to get the 3rd roller to work reliably otherwise.

That's interesting. I've had the MM3 for a couple years now and never had the 3rd roll not turn. I do clean regularly though with compressed air and lube the bushings with a drop of food grade oil.

no problems here with a MM3, bought 4 years ago.

Well a Millar is on its way posted by a friend in the US. 

Over 100 bucks shipping! I’ll dodge the tax and import charges this way though.   

Thanks all.

Well, Todd has told me the buckets are out of stock with no confirmed date of them being back. 

So I guess I’ll have to wait or maybe shop around again. 

I’m disappointed.
