Help with Marcato Marga
I bought a Marcato Marga manual mill a few months ago and am really struggling with it.
Latest attempt is to flake some oat groats. I set it on 1 and start. Sometimes the groats go through, but most often after 5-10 seconds everything stops and I am turning the crank with nothing coming out. I use the brush/my finger to agitate the grains in the hopper (which is not overloaded) and keep trying, I reverse the direction for a few turns and try again, but nothing fixes it.
I've taken the hopper off and tried to direct the grains into the gap between the two cylinders to no avail.
And then, every 30 or so attempts, it'll start working again and go for 10 seconds or so. Then stop.
I can't help thinking there is something wrong with it. The crank handle turns the first cylinder, yes, but shouldn't the one next to it move too? When I try to get this second cylinder to move by itself (by taking the hopper off and encouraging it) it will not move.
Pulling my hair out here! Can anyone help?
