Cast Iron Wheel Coffee Grinding Mechanism

Grind your own beans with a traditional cast iron coffee mill grinding mechanism! Wooden base not included.


Cast Iron Wheel Grinding Mechanism
Our cast iron wheel grinding mechanism is a highly ornamental choice for old style coffee mill grinders. Cast iron wheel mechanism has plastic gears in top section and includes small metal knob for base.


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.

Coffee Grinder is a great project
I've been buying these kits for several years. I make a couple every year for gifts or fund raisers. They are always a hit with everyone.

The cast iron wheel coffee grinding mechanism works great, but the e-z plan for the base needs some minor changes. There needs to be a rabbet on bottom of the sides and back of the drawer in order for the pieces to fit properly.

Don't see it being extremely functional but makes for a nice decoration or conversation piece.

Nice project for gifts
The plans were good. The gears for the grinder are made of plastic! Gifts for my daughters and they are grinding the coffee beans and enjoying the brewed coffee.

Fun project! Make it fancy, make...
Fun project! Make it fancy, make it simple. I made mine with from scrape Cherry and Poplar. It's very simple but still an eye catcher. I finished the inside with Walnut oil, but only enough to seal the pores. As Mr. Collett said, let the coffee oils do the rest. Not much else to say. Just a nice piece for times when you feel like building something but don't want a major project.

Fun project, skill level - learning...
Fun project, skill level - learning to make joints and corners. Given plan was a guide, however, scrap walnut wood determined the design and size 6x5-1/2". Door knob did not seem secure, so, purchased one similar to photo at hardware store. Grinder works, if you have patience. Will make another unit as a gift and will not stain or finish the inside of the box due to urethane smell. Will let coffee oils do that. Consider the project ornamental, unless the power goes out.

Was a nice unit to build,...
Was a nice unit to build, gave it to my wife last Christmas. Only problem I had was with the spring. I changed up the cabinet using box joints and a drawer that went into the box rather than sitting on the face of the box, thought it looked better. Good luck enjoy.

Grinder Works Well Enough - Plans Leave Something to be Desired
I share in the frustration per another comment made about all the different thickness of material required in the free plan download. Were I to do it over again I'd likely go with a box-jointed plan of my own design. The end result for me worked out and it's what I use to grind beans for a fresh cup of coffee in my wood shop.

Not for a novice
My wife has gotten into roasting and grinding her own beans. With all the different thicknesses called for, some one without a thickness planer would find this a challenge. The instructions for the drawer assembly need clarification about installation of the bottom as mentioned before. No guide as to what the springs are for or how to install them. No threads on the knob, so I turned my own out of scrap pen blank material.

because of your PRICE MATCH guarantee. I'm waiting for someone of your company to respond to my request. But I'll get my discount over the next few days. While holding the phone for this you cut me off... I'll be back!

I want to make a coffee grinder
Eladio M on Nov 30, 2015
My dad passed away ten years ago. In his shop I found a couple of half finished coffee grinders - I didn't even know what they were until a wood working friend figured it out! That same friend is going to finish them for me, and they will make great gifts for my two oldest kids.
Lisa Y on Nov 14, 2015
I make and use the coffee grinders to give as gifts for friends and family. I don't use the wood kit because it is very poorly constructed..

I have made these from time to time with Rockler's kits, and they always turn out very well.

What are the small spring steel pieces for?
Peanut on Jul 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The spring strips can be used to help create tension to keep the drawer in place when grinding. The typical method of attaching these springs is to use two staples ( one towards each end). They can be affixed this way either to the drawer sides or to the inside of the box sides.
I want the entire kit . . . wood pieces and mechanism. Do you have both???
