The Mill or Grist Stone
It is considered of more value because it was imported from France in one piece. Many millstones came over in pieces as ballast on sailing ships and were later banded together to form one stone.
Because the runner stone rotated it had to be balanced and
adjusted to maintain a clearance of about 1mm from the bed
stone. The grain is ground between the stones and works its way
to the outer edge where it falls into the bin.
