A mill is a machine used to grind, crush, or cut solid materials into smaller pieces. Typically, it consists of a large stationary stone or metal base and a rotating wheel or cylinder that grinds or crushes grain. Throughout history, mills have been used for various purposes such as grinding grain into flour, crushing ore for mineral extraction, and cutting lumber for construction.

One of the most well-known types of mills is the windmill, traditionally used for grinding grain and other materials. Windmills typically consist of a tall cylindrical tower with a large wheel or blades on top that rotate under the force of the wind. When the blades rotate, they transmit energy to the grinding or crushing mechanism inside the mill.

Another type of mill is the water mill, which harnesses the power of water to rotate the grinding or crushing mechanism. Water mills were often used in areas with reliable water sources such as rivers or streams to power the mill.

Today, mills are still used in various industries such as agriculture, mining, and manufacturing, although they are usually powered by electricity or other modern sources of energy.

A miller can’t manage alone, so the miller needs an assistant.
