To whoever was looking for a hand-cranked coconut grater, my friends and I bought one at one of the Indian grocery stores in Culver City. I think it was the one on... er, Washington in the same lot as a mortician, who makes good potato samosas. Though it may have been at the Venice Sweet & Spice.
I think it was about $5.
I think they're a little less useful than Thai-style ones, which are basically orange-juicers on steroids and pissed off.
