Grinding stones are large circular stones used for grinding or milling the grain into flour. At the mill we find two types: the base or stationary stone and the grindstone. The base stone is placed at the bottom and through the iron neck a portion of the roller shaft connects with the grindstone. At the top end, the iron neck joins the hub, the elongated piece which holds the grindstone and makes it grind the grain.
