The Cornflake King and Handmade Lace -Part 3 (Revisited)

Through the flywheels

Beautiful

Patent date, unknown. It weighs about 65 pounds. It ground all the coffee purchased at the Burley Store (Kitsap Peninsula, WA) in the early teens and twenties of the past century. It still works just fine, grinds all our coffee, and makes me think of Kate whenever I slide my hand onto that shiny handle, worn smooth from use. Mention of it was recently found in one of her letters. Another patch in that quilt.
