Peppermill Tutorial

Ok guys and gals,
I made a peppermill today and took a bunch of pictures and wrote a tutorial to go with it. It is a microsoft word document. If you would like a copy, send me an email and I will email it to you. The file is 2.7 megs, so it should email ok. If for some reason your email gets bounced, wait till later in the day and try again. Sometimes my mailbox gets filled up before I get a chance to empty it.

Great job

Thanks Ken,
Glad you enjoyed it. I have both MS Word and a PDF version. The pdf file is about half the size. So whomever else wants a copy, feel free to drop me an email and let me know what file version you want.

Mike,
Thanks for sending the tutorial. I look forward to giving it a try. You did an excellent job at covering all the descriptive details. I can't imagine how long it took you to put it together.
Thanks for sharing!!!

Thanks John,
It really wasn't too bad. I just kept taking pictures as I was going along. Then later that night I put them together and added all the text. I used to write a lot of SOP's when I was in the fire service. Everything we did had to be spelled out. Our sop book was almost four inches thick and everchanging. When I write the text I just try to imagine myself doing it again and having to tell someone how at the same time.

Thanks Mike
It is a well written and photographed tutorial I can't wait until I get back after the holidays and get some salt and pepper mill kits and give it a try.
Where did you get your peppermills?
Thanks again
Jeff

Jeff,
You can get the mechanisms through Craft Supplies, Rocklers, Woodcraft, to name a few. Most have quantity discounts.
