Rusted of antique tobacco grinder Restoration

  • Published on:  Wednesday, August 14, 2019
  • In today's video, we'll show you the renovation of an old tobacco grinder.

    This grinder I chose for you from the things I want to renovate over time. I have a mill at home for some time, I bought it at auction.
    I'll add the mill to my collection. The mill is marked PATENT size 4. 19th century antiques 1859-1873, cast iron grinders were used to produce chewing tobacco. The original patent date is August 2, 1859, ext. August, 1873. It is provided with three foot feet, each leg having an eye opening for attachment to a countertop.

    If you have some information about copper cleaning, you can share it with others on my Facebook page:


    If you have any questions about the process, use machines or other things, ask me in the comments. I try to answer everyone and as soon as possible.

    I'm sorry for my bad English, it's not my language.

    I'm uploading videos about recovering mechanical things. I'm uploading videos about restoring old wooden things.
