Grinding Mechanism for a Sterling Silver Salt Mill?

Q “Hi, I am looking for help with a salt grinder . Trying to force it open, the little knob on the top has broken off. Do you know if one can buy the grinding mechanism separately? It is a sterling silver mill and I’ll try anything before throwing it away! Thank you,” Carolyn

A “Hi Carolyn, thanks for your email but I am sorry I do not know any manufacturer that sells their grinding mechanism separately. However, I do not know which brand of mill you have so if you have a different mill to one of the brands I sell, then someone else may be able to help you.

The main silver mills that I sell are Peugeot and they definitely don’t sell their grinding mechanism separately. Is it the whole mechanism that has gone or just the top knob? I may be able to get hold of a spare knob”

Salt and Pepper Mill Spare Knobs

Q We have a pair of mills made by IKEDA. the silver top knob that secures the lid is loosen the spindle . Having ascertained that the gold pepper knob screws tightly and securely on both mills I am asking if you could identify a silver top fixing knob sell it to me.. David

A Hi David, Thankyou for your email. However, I am sorry but we only sell spare knobs for Peugeot brand mills . Otherwise there is no way we can know if it fits – the width of the spindle, the thread, the length of the thread inside the knob, will all vary.

Best wishes
