Plan for a long bore
Great kit but you better have a way of boring a ten inch hollow. Made mine as a wedding gift out of purple heart. Came out great.

Great Quality Mills
I followed the advice of Richard W and found the mill very easy to complete. Be sure that you are careful that the length measurements are correct to insure that the rod and cap nut mate properly. Both the 8 and 10 inch mills are alike except for the shaft length. You will likely be buying of these to use as gifts or to sell.

Great Grinder
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.

Works Great
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. 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

I found the plans accurate and the pepper grinder mechanism of good quality. Not sure what additional information the other reviewers were looking for. It was a fun little project that was pretty easy.

Very nice project
I love this and it is almost perfect. The one flaw in my opinion is the circular grinder piece does not fit properly. I believe the bottom hole should be increased by 1/8” to allow clearance.

Very well built kit. Will last a lifetime. I’m a little concerned about the metal top for the salt shaker though. I hope it doesn’t corrode from the salt. The pepper grinder adjusts easily for different grinds.

pepper mill has two angle flat pieces with holes cut in them on each end. the graphics do not show where the smaller of the two fits. could I see a picture of putting these pieces together?
Cecilia A on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: the deep one is the last piece you install on the square drive spindle the shallow strap fits over the whole assembly once you have it installed in the bore of the peppermill the two of the screws provided go through both sets of holes attaching them together into the bottom of the mill
I am building my first pepper mill. What size blank do I need for the 10"?
joe on Oct 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 3" x 3" x 12" blank
will a 2" X 2" X 12" blank work for the 10" pepper mill?
joe on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not really. The first cut with a forstner bit is 1&5/8 inches, if you find dead center to start with that leaves you only 3/8 inch for the sides or 3/16 for the wall which is pretty thin, I don't think you will be satisfied with it. You really need 2&1/2 inch blocks to start the project.
MAZANDLEN on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: the two grinding elements were made of stainless steel.
what are the dimensions of the shaft? I am using it for a repair I am hoping it to be 10" by 3/16" square and do you know what the threads are on the end?
cubis on Dec 14, 2016
Does it include both salt and pepper? The description says only one.
knswoodworks on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The kit contains the pepper mill kit and a salt top for a 3'4 inch hole and a rubber stop for the bottom fill.
Do you need jam chucks? and if yes are they included?
Marvin. W on Jul 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Jam chicks are not included. A jam chuck is a good idea. I have one I made that fits the parts and just use it over and over. It fits the top and then the bottom with the tail stock in the bottom to keep it secure.
Do these grinding mechanisms also grind salt (i.e. himalayan pink coarse salt)?
GARY S on Nov 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The salt mill has ceramic grinders that salt will not corrode. You cannot use salt in the pepper mill because the carbon steel grinder will become corroded.
