I got a JSP double-adjusting roller mill for Xmas and I am trying to fine-tune my crush. I will try to post four pictures, in order, 1-4. The first one is the factory setting, which the instructions say is the recommended .045" spacing, however this just looks like flour to me. Please let me know which setting (1,2,3,4, or somewhere in between) I should set my mill at. I personally think #2 looks the best but still a little floury, #3 has all the kernels just about broken in half. I would like opinions from guys with more experience though.
FWIW this is all equal amounts of Maris Otter, crushed into a bucket and shaken just once, just enough to cover the bottom and not pile up.

the first one looks good to me. Lots of whole husks, and I believe this will give good efficiency.

I say #1 as well. Funny though, when I set my Valley Mill to .045 the crush looks more like # 2 or 3.
I took Dan up on his offer of screening some samples recently and found that the .045 setting was very coarse. I re-inforced the legs on my MT and used a finer grind on Friday and everything worked fine.

#1 looks closest to what I get with my JSP.

Thanks for bringing that up, Vance. The offer to screen grist samples for free still stands for the moment. Just send me about 2 oz of your grist and I will put it through my seives and let you know what they look like. Remember to collect the samples as they fall out of the rollers. Do not collect them from a pile, grist stratifies very quickly and this will throw the data way off.

My Valley Mill gives me the same grist as the first picture too... I love this mill! Mine is mounted with an old washing machine engine and goes at 300 RPM.
