C.S. Bell #2 steel burr mill

I found a #2 mill at the antique mall yesterday for $80, it looked complete but dirty. After a serious cleaning I ran a half cup of wheat berries thru it & sifted the results. I'm happy with what I see but this is my 1st mill so any info on what I just screwed to my bench would be appreciated. I didn't use the flour & I wont until I clean again & disinfect with some bleach solution.
