Does anyone know of a SMALL grain mill, perhaps hand-crank, that is inexpensive? I am looking at grinding some whole wheat berries but I know that I will only need to do a small amount at any one time. Seriously, I'm only looking at 5 oz at the most. Therefore I don't need a huge, expensive grinder so was wondering what my options were.

Also, has anyone ever ground wheat berries in a food processor? I've got a full size food processor and a mini-prep but have only ground flax seed on occasion. It was a pain and took forever using that method, mostly I'm assuming because the flax seeds are very small and very hard. I'm hoping wheat berries might grind up easier in a food processor. Anyone?

Thanks
