Nutmeg grinder

I love freshly grated nutmeg and use if often. What I don't love is each time having to fish a nut out of the jar, then hunt around for where did I put that fine grater, then scrape my fingernails or knuckles on the teeth of said metal grater. So, I thought: why not put nutmeg pieces in a pepper/salt grinder and get a lot of fine grate with a few quick twists, sans bloody knuckles? It hasn't worked out. No matter how I adjust the grind (fine to medium to coarse), it takes forever to get even a quarter teaspoon ground up, leading me to return to the painful method. I am using a quality grinder. Any suggestions out there?
