Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #2

Pimp Your Pepper Grinder.

The other day I wanted pepper for something, I don’t use pepper much, and the only pepper we have is in a battery powered pepper grinder that was a gift from someone (I cant remember who and if it was you possibly don’t read any further).

The thing about battery powered stuff is that when you want to use it, it is always flat. This one takes something like 8 AAA sized batteries so even if I did want to change then I probably wouldn’t have enough… This was my solution…

Pepper Grinder: Looks pretty but without batteries completely useless.

You thought I was joking when I said it takes 8 AAA batteries…

So it is now broken into its 3 component parts. Power Unit, Peppercorn Storage and Nice looking top bit…

Introducing new power unit, 14.4V Black and Decker Drill…

Attach drill chuck to central column of pepper grinder.

Pepper grinder has now been pimped 🙂
