Hard plastic quality grinder mechanism made in Denmark. Finished height of mill approximately 305mm (about 12 inch). Actual shaft length 301mm. Fits in 24mm diameter hole in barrel. Requires recess for 34mm diameter flange set 8mm deep in base. Brass knob has coloured dot for distinguishing between pepper and salt mills (black for pepper and white for salt).
Shaft is 4mm square section aluminium. Grinder is held in by aluminium strap in base (screws not supplied)
It is possible to shorten the shaft by cutting down the bottom end and swaging with a hammer to retain the inner grinder. This saves having to re-thread the top of the shaft.
