Put a little spice in your life. Or salt, or pepper. This will bring it down to size, pulverize it, crush it and spit it out. Right on your steak or omelet.
I was hoping to take this to a local handmade crafts store along with some other things. This is my prototype. I will probably make a different carriage if I expect to sell it. It does what it should, it holds the grinder when not in use. I just think it could and should be better to go in a store.
Drill before turning. Each half gets 3 different holes drilled. I did the barrel first , started at the tail end and worked my way back to the headstock.
I part the barrel off with a handsaw, and then drill and turn the cap end.Part that off and put it on a jam chuck to clean up the end.
The carriage is joined with internal dowel pins. I cut washers from a coffee can lid to keep the wheelsaway from the body.
