Available accessories for Diamant Grain Mill:
- Fine Steel Disc pair
The fine steel discs produce very fine flour that is suitable for even the most delicate bakes such as cakes. 90% of flour falls through a 0.3mm sieve.
- Medium Steel Disc pair
The medium steel discs are included as standard with the Diamant D.525 and are great for pretty much all bakes. 85% of flour falls through a 0.3mm sieve.
- Coarse Steel Disk pair
The coarse steel discs are not designed to not create flour, but to simply crack the grains / crush the grains open. This is ideal for things such as fermenting such as making your own beer using crushed malt. ‘Bruised Grain’ is also a term used for this type of cracked grain when it comes to producing easy to digest cattle feed.
- Motor Assembly for Diamant D.525
This motor assembly quickly turns your Diamant D.525 from a manually operated grain mill into an electric grain mill within just a few minutes and is fully reversible whenever you wish to be off-grid.

Classic Hand Operated Mill
We all know the expression “Daily Grind” wasn’t coined as something to look forward to. However, where coffee, corn or spices are concerned, the daily grind can and should be one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. The rich, spicy aroma created by the grinding of fresh roasted coffee is nothing short of amazing. Grinding coffee, corn or spices can be not only enjoyable, but a relatively simple affair on our hand operated grain mill.
DIAMANT D.525 Handmill for Any Kind of Grain
Our handmill is suitable for grinding of any kind of grain, corn, coffee, chemicals, spices, etc. and with this mill you will easily get fresh, wholegrain flour for your homemade bread.
The D.525 Grain Mill is Easily Operated
DIAMANT hand operated grain mill type D.525 is a strong mill which is designed to meet the requirements of a small hand-operated mill, easy to operate by means of hand power. No special tools are required.
This hand operated grain mill mill can be used for grinding of products with a high moisture content as it can easily be opened and cleaned without any special tools. Due to the special force-feeding worm the mill is suited for grinding products with a certain oil content.
The flywheel has a groove for V-belt drive and can be driven by an electric motor. We do not deliver the motor, but recommend a ½ HP or 1 HP motor, 1400 r.p.m. and a pulley of 85-90 mm for the motor, making the rotation of the grinding disc approx 300 r.p.m.

Steel Grinding Discs
The heart of the mill consists of the specially cast and hardened grinding discs. They are supplied in various types depending on the purpose. Type 14/15 (medium) for normal grinding, type 14a/15a for finer grinding and type 16/17 for animal feed and cereal. Included with your Diamant D.525 is a set of medium discs.
Distance Adjustment of Discs
The distance between the discs is adjustable so the grinding fineness can be changed during operation.

Unique Pre-Grinding System for Superior Results – Only the Diamant has it! Several blunt pre-grinding “”teeth”” gently crack grain. When it gets to the auger it’s perfectly prepared for a smoother, more even grind. Competitor models use an impractical spring arrangement that’s not nearly as effective and completely lacks the elegant engineering of the Diamant.
Grinds fast and fine – Extra large burrs churn out flour as fine as store-bought 20 percent faster and much more easily than any other hand-turned mill on the market.
Grinds virtually anything – Corn, beans and most oily materials can be ground without using a special auger. Grinds all grains, many spices, legumes, beans, nuts (except peanuts) and seeds without changing burrs! Make flour, meal, coffee, sesame tahini, cereal or animal feed. Specially engineered iron/steel burrs can grind just as fine as other mills’ stone burrs and eliminates stone grit in your flour.
Easy to use:
- Big V-belt flywheel is made of solid cast iron, not aluminium. Adds momentum to the turning action, rotates smoothly and makes it easy to motorise.
- Adjusts quickly and easily from powder-fine to coarse.
- Long wooden handle lets you use two hands for more leverage. Or share the work with a friend (face each other). Grinding is much easier – and more fun – with two people!
- Bushing/sealed bearings eliminate maintenance – never need to be oiled!
Built to last – This mill hearkens to an earlier time when things were built to outlast their owner and be passed on to the next generation. This solid cast iron mill is one of the heaviest hand mills in the world. The finish is a non-toxic green finish with gold trim. The Diamant uses a force-feeding worm auger that pre-cracks grains before arriving in the grinding chamber to make milling easier. The two extra grinding discs that are available as optional accessories add great versatility. The Diamant D.525 comes with a two-year warranty from LUBA.
Note: After grinding oily or fatty foods, it may be necessary to demount the mill and clean the mill casing, cover and grinding plates. The mill comes with instructions on how to do this. If you are storing the grinding plates for several months in a humid environment, it’s a good idea to coat them lightly with vegetable oil to prevent rust. With normal use, the grinding plates should last for many years.
