Does the Wondermill Junior masa auger do a better job than the grain auger?
I already have a Komo mill that I'm very happy with, but being a bit of a gear head (and a bit of a closet PREPPER) I bought a used Wondermill Junior when one came up for sale locally. I got the older white version, not the newer red one. I believe the latest version also includes an extra masa auger.
One thing that I really dislike about the WM Jr is that no amount of cranking (manual or motorized) will empty out the auger chamber. I always have 1/4-1/2 cup of grain that remains in the auger chamber - the stuff that's left over is usually cracked so it's more or less waste. The shape of the grain auger doesn't force the remaining grains into the grinding area unfortunately.
The so-called masa auger looks like it would do a much better job of moving everything toward the grinding stone - I've uploaded an image that shows the two augers side by side.
I was wondering if anyone on here could confirm that before I bother to buy one up. As it is I'm tempted to pack the WM Jr I have up and sell it.
