    I found this and thought it was pretty neat. Great price too.

    I bought a pipe from this guy and spoke with him on the phone. I can personally vouch for him.

    Im not saying that they cannot be used with flakes, or arnt actually intended to be used in such a manner...just that Ive known people to use them for...other purposes. As for that site...it doenst look half bad. Some decently priced vintage Gillette Adjustable razors on there...

    Tobacco grinder, spice grinder, other stuff grinder, seems like they're all the same.

    Yep, agreed. Nothing against them (I've never tried one for flakes or... others...) But I'm happy enough just pulling my flakes to bits- I find I've got plenty of control over piece sizes that way.

    I didn't even consider all of the other things he could prep with his palms. Bravo, Johnny Dingo!

    I had one of those 'flake' grinders in my youth. Back when I smoked a pipe. Even then I preferred breaking up the pipe filler with my fingers.;)
