I have an old Griswold hand grinder that I've used for many years to grind meats. As I was grinding figs for holiday cookies the other day, I noticed one of the insertable disk appears to be a steel burr for grinding corn, wheat, etc. The disk is solid with fine grooves on once side and course on the other. It fits on the rotating shaft. I'm thinking there should be another plate that stays fixed. I have 7-8 other plates, mostly with different size openings for meat. I wasn't able to locate any information on line...maybe I was looking in the wrong place.

How would I set up the grinder for let's say corn? Also, I usually coat the steel with mineral oil before I put the grinder away to keep the uncoated parts from rusting. I wipe this off before using the grinder. Is there something better? Thanks.
