Adjusting Antique Style Pepper Mills

After having a few questions about how to adjust my Antique Style Pepper Mills I thought a good idea would be a quick explanation on how they work. We use ours often and typically keep the size on a finer setting for the dinner table. On occasion we will loosen the bottom bracket when adding straight into a pasta sauce or curry. 

 Classic Mills are adjusted on top, as are these. 
The difference, these have two dials, the bottom adjusts coarse to fine. 
The top keeps tension on the bottom dial so you do not have to adjust as often.  

Classic Mills often self adjust when they are turned unless there is an internal spring
that keep the tension on the grinding mechanism at the base of the mill.
