The diameter of the tennon, sits at 52 mm. This kit is an ideal base for a salt and pepper set where there is still room for your own design. You can do the following:
- make pepper and salt mill from 1 piece, when you cut off the body to the length of the drilled hole, you keep enough wood to make the turning knob from the same piece of wood. Note that the diameter where the turning head goes in is 22 mm.
- Make pepper and salt grinders using a different piece of wood as the turning knob, then you can drill the 25 mm hole further and use the whole length of the 19.5 cm Crushgrind grinder.
- you get Crushgrind grinders that are 19.5 cm long, you can easily shorten them to the desired size with a metal saw.
In short, with this Crushgrind kit you have everything you need to make your own grinders without needing all diameters of drill bits.
