How to use the SAMAP hand-mill
The SAMAP hand mill is worth considering as your flour mill for times when there’s no electricity.
In such times it would be great to have the choice to pedal-power your mill.
The limitation of this grain mill is that I have not seen a way to operate it by pedal-power.
Base diameter: 28 cm
Height: 35 cm
Weight: 8.75 kg
Guarantee: 5 years
Output: variable: 30 to 80 g/minute
(about 60 g/minute for fine flour for bread or 4 minutes per cup)
(about 1 minute per half cup (1 serving) of oat flakes)
Note that this output depends on:
a.- the fineness setting (gap between stones)
b.- the type of cereal grain (buckwheat is soft, wheat is tough)
c.- the adjustment of the feed into the milling chamber
d.- the speed of rotation (this depends on you, dear reader!)
e.- the moisture content of the grain. Less energy is required
for dry grain (stored in a dry place or kept dry) than for
grain with higher humidity content
Low moisture test: place a grain on a hard surface and try to cut it in half with a knife by pressing firmly. If the 2 halves jump away, then the moisture content is reasonably low.
