Hello, I found this grinder for sale locally for 160 bucks. Does anyone know the burr size on this grinder and if it's generally good? It looks similar to modern 43s in terms of size on the counter.

Found out more info on it - it uses the grind adjustment mechanism that relies on moving a static burr on some sort of piston - pre-war design that was ditched in favor of modern design. It cannot achieve decent grinding results in terms of modern standards.
