Topic: Armin Trosser Grinder (4 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Marc Testa
I dont know if this has been discussed, but I cannot search the archive at
the Meye's site, so I will assume this hasnt been discussed.
I recently acquired an Armin Trosser grinder from Ebay and began to clean it
out.  I have a steam cleaner and began to clean the aluminium cover of the
hopper.  The burrs were cleaned with a dry toothbrush.
While I was steam cleaning the hopper...which looks very similar to the
hopper used in the Zassenhaus grinders, the paint began to chip...My
question: anyone think this paint is lead based? Is there a quick way to
tell?  Again, the surface looks very much like the hopper in the Zass, and
the texture of the hopper paint is slightly soft, almost like laytex...any
help would be very greatly appreciated. Also, anything anyone knows about
the Trosser grinder would also be very greatly appreciated!!
Thank you,
Marc

You can get lead testers at hardware stores.

Most paint stores will sell you a lead test pen that you can use in a 
few minutes to see if you've got lead-based paint or pottery glaze.
