An optional short drill is also available that makes it possible to drill the 13 cm grinders in one go.
Make sure the headstock and tailstock are in line. Take a suitable piece of wood, turn it round and clamp it in a chuck. Flatten the surface where the drill will enter the wood and make a center point in the wood. Place the Crushgrind drill in the tailstock and adjust the depth of the forstner drill. Drill the hole at a maximum speed of 500 rpm. Make sure that the wood chips are unloaded in time. Place the tool rest parallel to the workpiece and run the support rod over the tool rest so that the drill cannot rotate in the tailstock. When the support rod comes to the wood, the hole is deep enough. Now make a notch in the wall of the hole, in which the mechahanism hooks engage. The notch should be 6mm wide and 2mm deep is enough. The Crown PMT is just the right size. If you place this tool against the bottom of the hole and pull it slightly to the left, you have already made the notch. Now cut off the “body” of the pepper mill, the head remains in the chuck. Drill a 22 mm hole in it (drill not included). Now use the drilled holes to clamp the workpiece in a centered position. So make sure that the edges are clean. Then make the outside shape.
The HSS chisels can be sharpened with a diamond file while the blades remain in the body. Sharpen both blades equally, so that the depth of the drilled holes remains the same. You can also sharpen on a grinder. If you take the knives out of the body, make sure that 1 knife cuts at the top and 1 at the bottom when replacing.
The drill that is mounted in the front of the Crusgrind Drill can also be replaced by another size. This drill is 25 mm but of course 35 mm is also possible. If the drill used fits the holder.
The Crushgrind mechanisms is Danish design. The quality is very good and the price is very reasenable.
