Santa Cruz Shredder 4 part 1 5/8″ anodized color grinders. This is the small size 4 part grinder. Santa Cruz developed a unique and proprietary thread pattern designed to eliminate the binding & permanent seizing of the screw-together parts. They anodize the threaded surfaces to eliminate “galling”. Galling is a form of surface damage arising between two sliding metals in contact with one another. Raw aluminum threads transfer wear-debris from each surface causing a build-up; therefore creating lumps, deformations, roughness & eventual failure. Santa Cruz invented a new approach using a “7-Catch Design” allowing the user to easily adjoin the parts with very little effort. Most grinders rotate around & around until the user eventually finds the thread catch, and then has to continue screwing on the component over & over until it’s secure. This causes additional wear & tear, the possibility of cross-threading, and a confusing amount of turns.
