I got the clue I needed from this four part series of YouTube videos.
I watched David (one of those YouTube preppers who regularly cracks me up) assemble his Wonder Mill.
Check. Did that right.
I watched Dave start grinding wheat and getting copious amounts of flour.
I paid close attention and then smacked myself in the head. Hubby Dear and I are officially idiots. Wanna know why?
We had been turning the handle in the wrong direction!! You're not going to get good results if you don't use it properly! I don't even want to admit how long we worked on that mill yesterday. We are s-t-u-p-i-d.
In our defense, the owner's manual doesn't say what direction you should turn the handle. (Clockwise, for fellow hapless grain millers). I guess I should be glad we're getting the kinks worked out now instead of during TEOTWAWKI.
Mostly I just feel dumb.

In summary, my review of the Wonder Junior Deluxe Hand Grain Mill is now completely positive. It is sturdy and it does work - if you use it correctly!
