This would be analogous to a roller grain mill, right?  I have often 
wondered about using my grain mill for coffee except the aperture is a 
little small.  Seems like it would work better. I recall from my more 
active homebrewing days that grain dust was to be avoided also.  If those 
with the screens would like a home rolled sample of coffee, I would be 
happy to grind (roll) some up and send it off.

Ed/John-have an ancient Enterprise grocery story dual wheel "grinder"-think
it has adjustable rollers in it-on my to do list to get it cranked up-sucker
is huge and weighs 150#.  Be curious to see what kind of "grind" this sucker

I'd not heard that.  I'll check it out.  I've worked with large, industrial
two-roll mills used to grind pigments. The rollers are water cooled.  The
friction of crushing is higher than the friction of shearing, which is what
happens in a burr mill. Something to consider when talking about the
ultimate cup.  Dan

I've always wondered how well they work too.  I think they are 
fantastic looking pieces of equipment.

I'd be curious too.  Send it over here, and I'll check it out. 
Do you have any idea how much those are going for on Ebay?  You could darn
well get a Swift dual grinder for what you would get for it.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item208004976&category930....and that's with four days left to go.
