Topic: The Polish grinder (21 lines)
1) From: Pecan Jim Gundlach
A few weeks ago, I bought a hand grinder off eBay that looked like it 
had quality workmanship.   I got it just before taking off for the 
holidays so I did not get to try it out.   I am off today so I though I 
would give it a try.  It has six grind settings and I first tried the 
finest.   A very fine and even powder.  It chocked Miss Silvia.   I 
then tried the next to finest, still a fine even powder that again 
chocked Miss Silvia.  I then got my set of little mirrors on sticks and 
looked at the grinding mechanism from inside the box.  I think it may 
be more like a Turkish grind mechanism than the regular Zass.  It has 
two finely grooved cylinders that have very little taper so I doubt 
that it will grind very coarse at all.  I'll do a little more playing 
around with it later.  I've got to go change a fuel filter, weld a wood 
stove grate and do a few other things to maintain domestic tranquility.
