Peppermill Class at Barb's Barn

Click on thumbnail for full size image

There was a full house at Barb's Barn for the peppermill workshop

Jim Hilburger was the instructor for the workshop

Of late, Jim has been making a variety of peppermills...

of plain woods as well as laminated assemblies

Jim had his array of tools helpful to speed the job of making peppermills

Jim gets set up for his demonstration

Stock is rounded, a tenon cut for chuck mounting, and the bottom shoulder is drilled

While a spade bit will work, a twist drill of the proper size works well for the through hole

The slightly smaller diameter through hole is drilled next

With a spigot cut on the top of the mill, the mating diameter stud is cut to match the through hole

The grinding mechanism shaft hole passes through the top to allow grind coarseness to be adjusted

The hole is drilled for the shaft to pass through...

and a recess is cut for plate which prevents shaft rotation

The class heads to their individual lathes to round their stock and progress to the this point on their own peppermill

Jim circulates to check on everyones progress...

and to assist with any questions or problems
