Enercraft is a well built portable mill. Baker still has parts for them.

"Where are we going, and why are we in this basket?"

I had an old carpenter working for me back in the '70s.  His most used descriptions of bad boards, while sighting down them were, "crooked as a dog's hind leg", and "ugly enough to make a train take a dirt road".

I bet they would say anything is better than grits.

It's more along the lines of ketchup will make things taste better but not as much as being hungry.
