Default Crunching coal and charcoal

My internet is down and I have a little video of what I learned at Diamond head this past week.
Caleb Roberts told me about using a manual ice crusher to crush coal and charcoal.
I ordered one from Amazon Friday, got it this morning and it is fantastic. Stainless steel blades that can be washed and when I get internet back I will upload the results of the thing working.
This may not go thru either.
Guess the internet was working and I posted the pics of the results of the crunching

That sounds interesting. How big of pieces does it accept and what size are they after crunching?

I tried to get [pic of before and aftyer. As you can see the pieces of charcoal are good size.
The pieces of coal are on bottom left. They start at the size received from TRS. About size of thumb or larger. As I say in post need to bet screen wire or such to filter coal dust out. The device workd great and can be washed. There or two or three listed on Amazon, This one is about dollars.



It is the Nuvantee Manual ice crusher After crunching they are about small finger nail
