Spare Knob for Peugeot Pepper Mill?

Q Hi We have lost the knob for our Peugeot pepper mill and was hoping you would be able to help us. I have pictures of the screw from the pepper mill and the knob from the salt grinder pair. Kind regards Christian.

A Hi there, thanks for sending the images. However, this mill doesn’t look like the ones I have in stock so I can’t test that a spare knob will fit. I don’t have one of these flattened bottom knobs either so I don’t think I can help you with any confidence. Sorry! The knobs vary in terms of thread, spindle length that is inserted into the knob, and width of the spindle. It is surprising how different they are. And if you get the wrong one, even if it threads on, it may not keep the top section of the mill in place and therefore you will be unable to grind your mill.

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”
