I am seeking information on both the operation of and sources for procurement of small mills for grinding wheat to flour. Also I am wondering what would be the use for rice ground to flour? Could you bake with it or what?

Carl, Check out Gary Hansen's web page at: http://members.tripod.com/z2z/index.html

He is now carrying the Family Grain mill, which is a bit more expensive than some of the others, but worth it for the ease in grinding, especially if you'll be grinding alot. Do a web search on the Family Grain Mill, and ask Gary some questions, too; he's great about responding.

Yes I cook with rice flour all the time. You need to add about a teaspoon of Xantham gum powder per cup of rice flour if you even hope to get it to stick together. (It has no gluten - the stuff that makes your hands sticky when kneading dough).
Please remember that some people cannot digest large amounts of wheat - not just people with celiac disease but folks with regular guts too.
Same for beans. I am stocking up on quite a bit of rice and some beans and wheat.
