The large feed grooves in the grinder cone ensure that the grinder does not get clogged and that the grinder performs better with fewer revolutions.
A Forstner bit with a diameter of 23mm - possibly with a drill extension - can be used to drill out the wooden body (through hole). The lower bore extension to 38mm for the adjustment bracket and the upper extension for the rebate of the rotating cover (individually according to the mill shape) can be made individually with the turning scraper. See diagram. If you want to drill out these diameters with a Forstner bit, you have to do this before drilling the through hole so that it can be centred in the wood.
We recommend the FAMAG BORMAX or ZOBO drilling systems. Both systems are available for a variety of diameters and also with extensions.
With this type of grinder, the rotary cover is turned from below for the clamp cover with a diameter of 30mm with the turning scraper or drilled with a Forstner bit to a depth of 12mm. A recess with a diameter of 6mm must then be drilled for the pin of the axle. A normal twist drill is suitable for this.
The Strässler precision grinders are guaranteed for 10 years. It should be noted, however, that parts that have become defective as a result of improper handling and normal wear and tear cannot be replaced free of charge. For this it is particularly important that the grinders have been installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. This means that when installing the pepper, salt or caraway mills, it is essential to ensure that the length of the lid is at least 0.5 to 1.0mm long when the “knob” is tightened and the adjusting screw (below) is in the middle. The grinder must never be able to be tightened with the knob! The fineness of the grist is always set with the lower adjusting screw. This practically results in a "lifelong" faultless function.
Woods that contain tannic acid such as oak or robinia should not be used. This could lead to corrosion on metal parts of the grinder.
