Would be nice to see some vintage electric grinders.
There certainly are some beautiful ones from the 50's - 60's

some more chrome.
If I'm going to shell out hundreds of dollars on a grinder I want a metal / enamel badge on it, not plastic and certainly not paint.

Just beautiful !!

It's too bad more makers don't do enamelled bages.

I have one of those!

It has standard size flat burrs. All I had to do was swap out the bearings and everything runs. 220v and it is a beast. The grinds fly out of the chute and generate quite a bit of static. Not a home grinder, but it is neat to look at!

a couple more with really nice shaped glass hoppers. I also like the one armed bandit style of doser lever on the left
