DESIGNERS/INVENTORS:WILLIAM E. BOUNDS ELMER S. MORRIS CARL A SUNDSTROM A

' PEPPER MILL 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 lN-VENTORS WILL/AM E. BOUNDS ELMER S, MORRIS CARL. A. SUNDSTRO/W ATTORNEY Unite drama fire 3,168,256 PEPPER MILL William E. Bounds and Elmer S. Morris, Manhattan Beach, and Carl A. Sundstrom, Palos Verdes, (Ialifi,

assignors to William E. Bounds Associates, Manhattan Beach, Calif, a partnership Filed May 2, 1963, Ser. No. 277,631 Claims. (Cl. 241-168) This invention relates to a pepper mill and more particularly to such a device which can be selectively set to grind pepper to one of several consistencies.

A pepper mill is almost always used by a gourmet in seasoning his food to assure the optimum flavoring results. Generally, in the pepper mills of the prior art, the mill must be set by an internal adjustment to produce pepper particles of a particular desired size. However, it may be desired for different purposes to produce different size granules. With the pepper mills of the prior art, it is necessary to make an internal adjustment on the mill to appreciably change the size of the granules produced. Such an adjustment is entirely impractical during a meal, and therefore the pepper mill is generally pre-set to grind the granules to a compromise size which is less than ideal for all desired uses. Most of the pepper mills of the prior art, also are incapable of grinding the pepper to a very fine consistency.

The device of this invention overcomes the aforementioned shortcomings of prior art devices in providing means for selectively setting the pepper mill to grind the pepper to one of several preselected consistencies. For the fine position, means are provided in the device of the invention to mash the granules to produce an end result of exceptionally fine consistency.

In the device of the invention, a grinder head is fixedly attached to a rotatable shaft for movement relative to a fixed mating grinding receptacle. The grinding receptacle is fixedly attached to support means on which appropriate cam surfaces are formed to define several distinct positions each establishing a different separation between the grinding surfaces. Cam means which are connected to a rotatable selector ring are positioned on the mating cam surfaces to set the rotatable grinder head a predetermined distance from the stationary grinding receptacle. In the position for the finest grind, the grinding action involves both rotary and reciprocal motion. Thus, the size of the granules produced by the mill is determined by the position of the selector ring. One of several size granules can, in this manner, be selected by the operator of the mill.
