    I hope someone likes this!!

    Had this on WTU and no one had a darn thing to say...oh well.
    11" or there about Ambrosia Maple. 8 coats of WOP knocked down with 0000 steel wool. Crush grind ceramic from CSUSA. Wish I'd know there is a "special tool" for these so I made my own after the fact. Had a mutha of a time with the cap so...uhhh...well...it ain't the best. Loaded with Pink Himalayan mineral salt that ground up well. Out the door Monday for the new owner!

    Just a comment, not a criticism but the picture is pretty small, hard to get a good look at it. but I really like that ambrosia maple.

    Jim like everyone else said if we could see it, I bet you would get a lot more comments. I looked(or rather tried looking at it) over on WTU, but like here I can hardly see what it looks like.

    Hey Jim,
    As best I could see the mill, it looks good... the crush grind is pretty much the only mills I make... I do make a few of the little crank styles that PSI offers, but my favorite is the crush grind.

    You don't need the special tool.. I'm assuming you're talking about the drill gizmo that cuts the bottom two holes.... I just use the 1 3/4 forstner and the 1 9/16 forstner... I don't use the 1 1/16 myself... I just drill through with the 1 9/16. For the top I cut a short tenon on the bottom that fits inside the 1 9/16 hole, then drill that with the 15/16 drill bit for the white gizmo that grips the shaft and turns the grinder. I like them because you're not restricted to an specific size... make your body and top and cut the shaft to fit. My mills range from 13" to about 6". I can do taller ones with the 18" shaft, but they don't sell well, so I rarely bother. BTW best place to buy the inserts is from Cam Laver out of Canada... he's about $3 to $5 cheaper than the big boys selling them on line in the states. He ships quickly - usually in two to three days from order and I've received my mills in a week or so.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Chuck, have you had any of the crush grind mechanisms fail? I have had three failures in three years from them
