Hand Operated Grain Mills
The hand operated wheat or grain mill certainly has some obvious disadvantages when compared to the electric mills. Being manually operated, they are much more labor intensive, and production speed is, as might be expected, typically much diminished. On the other hand, price is usually lower, they will work even when power is down, they do not require ready access to electrical outlets, and hand operated grain mills will often safely and efficiently handle various oilseeds, which are on the "forbidden list" when it comes to most of the electric grain mills.
Some families will actually make use of both hand operatied and electrically powered mills, or they may opt for a manual mill that can be converted to motorized use as the need arises.
