The Santa Cruz grinder is a piece of crap. I wish I had never purchased mine. All I did was throw away 65 dollars, thanx. I received mine and the first thing I noticed was there was already 2 small chips on threads. I ignored this because I was trying to not be picky, and I also know that the website I ordered from, EZGrinders.com prob wouldn't give me my money back anyways. There was also a silver smudge of some sort on the inside of the top piece that I was unable to get out. Top products here people, from a top website. Anyways when it became so bad I couldn't use it was when I noticed the rim on the inside of the grinder had chipped pretty badly. Now if I used it I ran the risk of that chipping into what I was grinding, awesome, just awesome. I treated this grinder with the best of care, I never dropped it, I never clanged it together. I even kept the thing in my own soft pouch when I wasn't using it. I feel very cheated by the shitty product this company produced, and the shitty website I purchased it from. Enjoy your damn near 100 dollars of my hard earned cash.
