Great instructions for all kinds of salt and pepper grinders. Would have liked more designs for the exterior but I really can do that myself when I know the required internal dimensions. I still waited for my grinder parts to ensure that their dimensions are the same as those in the book. I ordered the Crush Grind with a shaft. Don't know about the dimensions for the others. I recommend this book especially for those making their first grinders.

This book has a lot of information in it that will IMO, be very helpful to an individual that has an interest in turning these mills. As well as some design tips that would also help a more advanced craft person.
