Customer Question

I have a commercial coffee grinder from the (I believe) 1920's. It has a crank wheel that is
approximately 18" in diameter. On the wheel it says Elgin Co. the hopper holds about 2lbs of
coffee beans. It has a choke to determine how fine of a grind you want. There is an eagle on the swinging cover of the hopper. It is mainly blue & red.
