Topic tags/keywords: salt pepper lathe shaker turn

What do I need to get for my lathe to turn the salt and pepper shakers. Would like to offer that project to the students next year.

Also any instructions would be appreciated too.

Thanks.

First, find a source for the “guts” of the pepper grinder. The ones from Woodcraft come with some pretty decent instructions (you can also print them from their web site). The guts are not all the same and you will probably need to get a couple of Forstner bits (and maybe an extension for the bit) to drill out the cavity of the grinder/salt shaker and a long 1/4” drill bit for the shaft mechanism. A chuck (like a Oneway or similar) will facilitate holding the blank. A Jacobs drill chuck with a Morris taper to fit your tail stock.

If you need some help, let me know and I can send you more information.

There is an article in Woodcraft Magazine (May 2007) showing how to make a pepper grinder.

I agree with Lew. You might want to try out Penn State Industries also. I just seen a couple on there also.
