Just so you know, that split where they press the drums together isn't easily seen until the lid is removed due to the rolled lip. When you start in with your grinder just grind under the lip and then looking at the top of the drum you will start to see it discolor and smoke, that is a sign that you have went through the outer skin of the drum. You may even go through slightly in a few places until you get use to it. Not a big problem though just tweak you procedure from there. after you get through about 1/4 of the way around the drum, you will find that you can raise the lid quite a bit and see your progress.


I have updated the Photobucket page with the latest of Mrs. DeeZ pictures. View them as a slideshow, it is easier than clicking. I am chomping at the bit to get mine completed now. I just cannot believe that DeeZ didn't finish mine too on Saturday......
