Today was a good lunch. A bit frustrating, but good. I went out and picked up my BBQ grill roaster drum, so I’m that much closer to large capacity roasting! This will be good since I’m doing a pound every couple of weeks for a friend.
What was really cool was the piece of history I got back. When my father died, I pulled a vintage treadle powered grindstone out of the barn – it was my great-great grandfather’s. It had a broken ear on the axle shaft that held a connecting rod to the pedals. That’s now fixed! I just have to fabricate a longer connecting rod on that side – the cause of the break was a rod that was too short. Said rod remains on the grinder. Even though it won’t grind coffee, I still find it terribly useful!
