NAME:Woodcut Mill Drill – Crush Grind Salt & Pepper Mechanisms

The Woodcut MillDrill™ was designed to make the production of pepper grinders that utilise the CrushGrind® mechanism, easier and quicker. However it is a versatile tool and with some adjustment to the cutters it can be used to drill out a variety of different hole sizes

The Woodcut MillDrill™ incorporates a No2 Morse Taper so it will fit into the tail stock of most lathes; this means the drilling process can be done on a lathe.

The Woodcut MillDrill™ has been pre-sharpened ready for immediate use; the cutters can be sharpened again when the cutters become dull or blunt. How regularly you sharpen the cutters will depend on the timber being used. A diamond lap stone can be used for keeping the edge on the cutters as and when required

Additional Information:
The Woodcut MillDrill™ has the added feature of being able to act as a chuck for drill bits with a 10mm shank. Many forstner bits, for example have reduced shanks that measure 10mm and these can be inserted into the front of the Woodcut MillDrill™. Before doing so the front cutter needs to be removed and then, with the drill bit inserted in the front hole, the two grub screws can be tightened.

The Woodcut MillDrill™ comes complete with the cutters fitted a Allen key and instruction sheets showing how to prepare and use the Woodcut MillDrill™. The Crush Grind salt and pepper mechanisms are supplied in three sizes which are brought separately, for sharpening of the cutters see our Sharpening section in the Tool Shop drop down menu
