Product description
The samples are identical with each other considering their construction and the used parts, but the packaging is different. The housing of the grinder also serves as a grip. It is made of black plastic; there is an orange plastic insert on it. The second grip is also plastic and can be screwed into one of the holes on the sides of the metal crank house. The machine can be operated by pushing forward the switch button, where it is locked. The lock is released when pressing it from the side, and thus the button gets automatically into switch-off position. The protecting shield is made of iron plate and can be fixed onto the crank house with a screw.
