It is done...

The grinder that is.
I wanted a wall mounted retro coffee grinder but they were $25-50 dollars and I dont pay that much for anything....
I found this one on trademe for$1,much more my price:)
 
It was in a sorry state so after I cleaned and sanded it got a coat of paint ,new screws and ta daaa....

Much better.Otherwise a quiet day ...if you dont count a half hour round trip to the shops on foot,delabelling 2 dozen jars,making bread and the housework:)
