I've been quite happy with my Country Living Grain Mill.  It grinds wheat into flour plenty fine enough for making bread in a single pass, and if you run the flour through it a second time, even the bran comes through powdery-fine:

I thought about motorizing it, but it really doesn't need it.  The kids can turn the crank easily too.

In England I use an attachment for my Kenwood Chef Mixer.  It's a bit slow as you have to let it cool down every five minutes or so.  But it works very well and you can mill coarser or finer.
