Cast Iron Wheel Grinding Mechanism and Coffee Mill Well Kit
Our cast iron wheel grinding mechanism is a highly ornamental choice for old style coffee mill grinders. Coffee mill well kit base and mechanism sold separately.
- Cast iron wheel mechanism has plastic gears in top section and includes small metal knob for base.
- Oak coffee mill well kit includes all the precut pieces you'll need to make this project.
The small drawer knob referred to in the instructions for the kit is now metal and included with the mechanism.
Mechanisms are functional but intended for decorative use. A small amount of iron shavings may occur in the initial grinding process. These will decrease with use. To minimize the amount of shavings grind a first batch of beans on finest grind, discard grounds, then wash and dry the mechanism thoroughly before use. Paper filters are recommended when brewing.
