    Howdy!

    So I get whole corn in bulk from a local Co Op and I need to figure out a way to crush it on the cheap, preferably DIY.

    Any ideas?

    You can probably find an old corn grinder on craigslist or e-bay. We used a hand crank kind when I was a kid.

    What did they call the old stones? One to crush and a bowl shaped one to use as the base?

    Was it Mortar and Pestle?
