I purchased a Moulinex "Moulinet" to grind mine - it's basically like 
a baby food processor (but with a 700W engine is heaps more 
powerful).  It grinds a full bowl of habs in about 2 - 3 seconds.  
Also works well for mincing etc.

It also seems to be seeled very well when in use so minimal hab 
powder floating around - never fun in the eyes nose etc.
