    So, there we were at Snow Shoe Camp, with the coffee grinder already packed in the moving carton and Barb in bed howling for her morning coffee. And there I was with the beans & no grinder, when I remembered the really nifty 2 Lb hammer I use to seat the primers in the 50 BMG. It took a few minutes, and brought 'ol Barb from the warmth of the bed to learn the source of the bump-bump-bump noises coming from HER kitchen. It worked just fine and produced a wonderful cup, up to the standard of my usual offerings, of course.

    Best...mike

    I think I'll pass on watching you seat primers with that hammer.

    I didn't think there was another couple out there like us! My wife wakes up and the first words out of her mouth are 'where's my coffee'? I don't have a primer seating hammer, but none the less, that is a good idea. Nothing worse than having a nice bag of beans and no grinder. How does this relate to trap shooting? Wake up in the trailer before the big shoot and can't start the day off with a good cup of coffee......poor scores for sure!

    Hey! Hey! Don't you guys go dipping no frozen deer dicks in Barb's coffee.

    BTW, missed some, it looks as if the wood on that Craftsman 100X coffee grinder could use a re-finish. I guess we could start another shooting related thread about which finish is best, and how many coats to use. I'm thinking 'bout 20 coats of True-oil should do it.....grin
