Peck, Stow & Wilcox No. 3600 Side Mill
Joe MacMillan tells us in his book that this is the middle of the International side mill series by Peck, Stow & Wilcox. This is the medium sized mill, with the model no. 3500 being the small and the 3700 the large. These were made around the 1880s. These mills were known for their ornate, cast iron metal work and bronzed iron hopper.
We have left this one just the way we found it, mounted on part of an old crate from the Imperial Condensed Milk Co. You could clean it up if you wanted to, or leave it just the way it is. It's rustic character is perfect for a country cabin!
This mill shows its age, but still has a lot of life left in it.
It is missing the hopper lid and the rosette screw has been replaced
with a square bolt many moons ago.
This is an unusual coffee mill and really show-cases the artistry PS&W put into their mills. It makes a great conversation piece and takes you back to years gone by when life was a lot simpler. Whether you're an old country boy or a city-slicker, everyone can appreciate this one.
This side mill measures 9 inches to the bottom of the handle and is 6
inches wide a the top.
Book value on this mill is $250, but we found it at a good price so we passing along the savings!

Turn-of-the-Century Box Mill
This is a perfect example of an early American
coffee mill! This large, 1 lb. mill with side handle has been used,
hence the wonderful patina, yet it is still in good condition for being
100 years old! Although no identifying marks have survived, there was a
label on the front and on the bottom of the drawer at one time (which
we've tried to show in the pictures).
Age: Late 1800s - Early 1900's

Arcade Imperial Box Mill
This is a wonderful Imperial box mill made by the Arcade Mfg. Co. in
Freeport, ILL. The exact model number of these mills can be hard
to pin down. This could be model
No. 705 or the 2028. This is based on the hopper design and the
measurements of the box, both of which are virtually identical for these
two models, with the 2028 being a later model.
It is all original, complete and fully functional. It has a wonderful patina with quite a bit of the original bronzed finish still shining through after a hundred years. The top has a crack running through it and a corner of the drawer has broken off. This was a great little find from a shop in Florence, Colorado. We have left it just the way we found it and have not touched it up in any way.
The hopper is embossed "ARCADE MANUFACTURING COMPANY" and "IMPERIAL" around the outside edges.
This great box mill measures 7" wide x 7" deep and 11" to the top of handle.
