    Nice touch Lonnie. I too recess the drive plate in the tenon. Will give the satin look to the exposed plate.

    Suggestion for mechanisms - Chef Specialties
    has the 4" kit for $4.50 as compared to Woodcraft at $13.50. Other sizes are priced accordingly.

    Peppermill Detail

    I discovered this by accident. It is a little detail that will be seen only by the recepient, but it gives the mill more refined look. And it only takes a minute.

    (Woodcraft peppermill kit) Sand the exposed side of the aluminum "Shaft Drive Plate" with 600 or finer paper. Then buff with a Scotchbright pad. Sand and buff in one direction. This removes scratches and dings, and creates a smooth satin finish.

    I countersink the plate to stand slightly proud of the tennon.
