]Anyone use these? They are extremely cheap and seem to give you a much more consistent grind then those electronic ones. Are you able to produce a course enough grind for presses with these?

I think these grinders would be way too inconsistent in grind size to be useful for good coffee.  A burr grinder for less than $100 would do a better job for coarse grinds.

That looks like a Corona mill. I bought one of those once for milling malted barley for all grain brewing of beer, but it wasn't very good for that and I gave up on it quickly. I can only imagine how it would work for coffee... actually, I could go find mine from whereever I stashed it in the basement with all of my other junk, but I think I'll just stick with imagining it. On the plus side they are inexpensive, just a little more than a burlap sack and a hammer.

If you do use one for grinding coffee I would suggest buying a sieve. :o)
