    Does anyone know what the value of a Victoria hand grain mill would be?

    Thanks

  2. not much if it can't be motorized. a couple of minutes of cranking one of those mills makes a believer in electricity & motors, out of anybody.

    Crank 1/2 hour for enough coarse flour for a loaf of bread... no thanks.

    Cant help you with victoria mill,but there are many good deals on ebay. I bought mine there. Just search grain mill or flour mills.

    umm, in my opinion, a victoria would be nearly worthless....
    they dont work as good as so many other brands
    i had one , it kind fo turned me off the idea of grinders for a while, right now , i use a small special container for my blender, and use the pulse feature to process small amounts for fresh flour... ill get a grinder soon though
