Default Re: threshing mills

Not so sure there is hard and fast rule but they run fairly close. Depends on type of grain, condition of grain. Old George White book says use as few teeth as possible in concave. Less teeth for dry grain. More teeth for damp grain. You have to adjust and watch what you are getting out the arse end and elavator. Helps to run at right speed too, keep all teeth tight and strait for they should not hit one another and thresh better when strait. When custom thresh, farmer will usually tell you when you are not doing the good job Gluck haben.
