what machine/tool/process could best achieve this job?

i want to ground up a dozen bags full of various chinese herbs and plant matter into a fairly fine powder. Obviously I don't want to take all week doing it in a cuisinart or small blender. I've looked into leaf shredders but think it might not be fine enough. Though I don't want to spend a thousand dollars on something. Ideal would be some addaptation I couldmake to a power tool or some common gardening tool, something I could rent.

You might want to look into buying a second hand disintegrator or hammer mill used for pulverizing paper. You might be able to find these in government liquidation auctions.

With all due respect and not knowing your eventual intent; amount; time to spend; budget; etc. I can't imagine a leaf shredder being very satisfactory; certainly not to the point of creating a powder. Is this to create some kind of AROMATIC? Or something ingestable? Steven Wolf
