Description

"Corn grinder for corn meal demonstration" From "Darkroom Soldier": "Ingenious Hand Mill. As explained and demonstrated by Juan Berden's neighbor, Filipinos used this mill to grind whole corn or rice into flour. Built by driving rows of metal studs into flat wood rounds and installing a center post, milling begins when the rounds are placed face to face and grain is fed through a hole in the top round (finger inserted). As the upper half of the mill rotates, flour falls off the outside edges of the lower round onto a cloth where it is retrieved." ("Darkroom Soldier" caption authored by George Venn)
