we are running a 24 hr camp of about 100 people along with several in and out visitors and use about 20 lbs of coffee a day.  Most of our coffee is whole bean and we grind plenty of it.  Most of our grinders are very small, and we are unable to gain access to electricity at several sites along with the noise of them running as long as they have to at others   We have burnt out several of the small electric and are looking for a larger manual grinder.  

All I am able to find is small home versions online.  does anyone know of one capable of doing a bit more

Enterprise is famous for their cast iron coffee grinders. They are for the most part, 100 years old now and they still can be found in abundance but for low cost ones, they need to be rebuilt. They range in size from home units 12 inches tall to giant near 3 foot tall monsters that were the centerpiece of general stores around the country. A large one should have no problem with grinding 100s of pounds a day while a home size unit may be what you are looking for, assuming you are grinding just before use and not all at one time to let the coffee stale.

A representative sample grinder looks like this.

thank you both, I ended up getting one of the Enterprise grinders from ebay.  It has a decent size hopper, and its not limited by a small drawer or jar that i have to keep stopping and emptying.  so I grind as little or as much as needed at once.

Congrats. Like I said above, most are 100 years old now so the burrs may need to be changed or sharpened for best results, they are not gourmet quality, but they answer your need, not to mention, they look pretty cool!
