The grinder works as described. I bought three and all were of good quality. Take a look at the comments from Richard W for the best way to easily fit the mechanism into the wood.

I used this Peppermill Hardware with a Bear carving, using a CNC Shark Pro Plus, It turned out great. Salt shaker is a Polar Bear Carving.
These mills just plain work well....

These mills just plain work well. I have made about 20 of these to date. Yes the directions are terrible and you need to experiment with the order of steps you build the thing. Spend the time to build a prototype to avoid frustration with a nice piece of wood. Once the kinks are worked out they turn like a dream. Everyone just loves them, and the one we use on the table everyday is a couple of years old and functions like the day it was made. You can really experiment with designs to make a truly unique piece for yourself or to sell. One more thing, you do not need a 1-1/16th drill bit, drill a 1 inch through hole and size the bottom to fit with a scraper. The only part that needs to be this size is the bottom where the works insert into the cavity about 1/2" deep
