A while back there was what I took as a stream of consciousness leak into a posting on an office roaster that used a pencil sharpener as the coffee grinder. Well, eBay seems to have an obvious answer at eBay item number 120003320809. Pecan Jim Gundlach
Ok, At first I thought it was a mistake of a description. Then I read the part about the sharpener being on the back? Again. ??? Where do the pencil shavings go? Into the bin? Could the sharpener on the back be for some coffee additive? Chicory or cinnamon maybe. That is one funny combo! On 7/3/06, jim gundlach wrote: <Snip> -- Don

Not much of a description eh? My understanding of it is that it's an old grinder, that has a sharpener attached to the back. Could be any type of sharpener. A little half inch by inch that you can carry in your pocket somehow attached (glued) to the bottom or back. Could be something more extravagant actually mounted inside the grinder. Nice find Jim! -Walt On Mon, 3 Jul 2006 20:11:47, jim gundlach wrote: <Snip> -- Walter R Basil www.basilweb.net
The seller of It # 120003320809 seems to be a pencil sharpener collector. It only has the appearance of a miniature coffee grinder. His other auction offerings are similar. He's "back to sippin on his Bolivia Organic Peaberry De Montana. Very nice coffee" [It goes without saying- from SM] Cheers -RayO, aka Opa! Egad- it sounds like $50 worth of First Crack. $$, no coffee- Boo! On 7/4/06, Walter R. Basil wrote: <Snip> -- "When the theme hits the bass, I dance the Jig!" - -Virgil Fox at the Wichita WurliTzer
