I've been using this thing for a few weeks now and it's pretty consistent. It doesn't snag like other grinders I've owned. Since it's just a slab of aluminum you don't have to worry about paint or other things chipping off. It is a 2 piece so you'll need a surface to tap out your material but that's expected with a 2 piece. Weight of the product makes it feel solid and since there's no threads it'll never break like 3 and 4 piece grinders. For the price you can't really go wrong. Plus it's American made.
