The Victorio Back-to-Basics hand grain mill has a built-on Single Clamp System that holds OK to the end of a counter or table (2 inches thick or less). Be careful not to tighten it to tight, it may clack the mounting end of the mill body. You just have to live with it moving a little bit. I am not a big fan of the crank for tightening the mount, it is a little goofy to handle compared to a round knob that most mills have.

Grain Hopper:

The Victorio Back-to-Basics grain mill has a 1 cup capacity hopper that is about 2 3/8 inches by 3 3/8 inches wide. This is about half the Capacity size of the Retsel Uni-Ark and only 1/4 of the size of the Wonder Junior hopper. Being a smaller size means that you will have to fill it more often when milling larger quantities of grain. The hopper is small enough that filling it can be hard to do with out making a little mess. The hopper is plastic and slides onto the top of the mill. This can be an issue if a full hopper gets bumped of by you or a child, not a fun mess to clean up. This hopper gets a lot looser when it is broke-in from use.
