*Gilingan

A handpowered milling machine. It has a hollowed upper cylinder where the unmilled grains are placed. The bottom of the upper cylinder has a "teeth" or metal sheets attached in feather-like rows. These metal sheets will act as grinders. The upper clyinder is placed atop a cylindrical hard wood with a larger diameter  also with a "teeth". A hole is bored  in the upper cylinder one or two inches off the center. It has a wooden handle and when the upper cylinder is rotated the grains pass into the hole and out  through the grinding "teeth". This kind of milling machine is suitable for corn and not for rice.
