french press and drip, but would it grind for espresso? Since Turkish coffee
uses a very fine grind, >I thought it might work...

Does anyone ever read the list rules? {re: url's of competitors} - Steve

That might be great for Steve, but I'd recommend the knee grinder 
unreservedly for espresso.  While I usually don't have the patience to 
hand crank, my old Zas (I'm thinking it's 30 or 40, a cheap scrounge 
because it needed just a bit of cleanup) is a treasure.  I don't know if 
I could get a finer grind from even the more premium home market 
machines.  
I'd *really* recommend the knee grinder over the box grinder.  
Turkish is pretty easy to keep stable and hold onto during grind, but 
the little box grinders can be a pain, IMO
