Anyone Have an Instruction Sheet for the Wolfgang

mixer? (AKA Tribest Fidibus).  I just picked up a used mixer and although found a sheet online, my German is severely lacking!  (And it's a PDF so those online translators wont help.)  I know how to operate it but would like to see the instruction sheet just for piece of mind.  

Also I understand you can't mill popcorn with it.  Has anyone had success milling other types of corn with one?  Thanks, Mike

Have you tried   Manuals online?

I ran a search here using wolfgang mill and had quite a few hits, many in blogs.

Give us the link to the german manual.

In fact I did it twice, but it was late at night and that is my story (and I am sticking to it).    :o)

They sell the mill, give demo on several mills and I'm sure would be glad to give you info.

Hi, I'm a beginner and I just bought a KoMo Fidibus 21 with a sifting attachment. I e-mailed the factory asking about this and got a reply from a Katrin that it was on the forums. My intructions were all in German too. I'm on the look out for user tips. My plan to start is to mill a locally produced spring wheat and sift out the bran with the sifter to get a 60/40 ratio for the dough.

 

I went to visit a Traditional Dutch windmill to see how it's done. They said that they wet the whole wheat the day before. This is supposed to soften the hull and results in a nicer bran flour structure. Looking at the old fashioned wind driven mill, you can see that the KoMo follows the same thing in modern miniture. They also crack oats and other grains by pushing the lever past the coarse setting. What I like about the KoMo is the way that it's design is an evolution of a very old technique.
