FreshRoast SR800, Phidgets, and Artisan

I have been thinking of adding Phidgets to my SR800, but still just learning how to use the roaster. Seems like getting a smooth declining ROR is pretty difficult anyway given there isn't infinite control of fan and power. Ultimately, even with the Artisan data, that seems to be a limiting step. I am just brainstorming here, but could some...

Fellow Ode brew grinder review

Hmm, I'd personally argue the other way around. I wouldn't want to buy $200 burrs for a Niche, at that price point I expect burrs that don't need to be replaced. But I'm probably the exception in that regard, considering how many people put SSP burrs in their very high-end grinders

But I just remembered that I did try to suck out some of the grinds from the top with my hand-held vacuum so take that into consideration. The reason why I took it...
