Arrived today. What a neat tool. I think I've arrived at a grind setting that works using Kalita 185's. 5- 50 gram pours. Time 3:35 sec. or so. I'll experiment more looking for a setting for the Robot after caffeine wears off.

Any comparison to grind output compared to your Niche?

Actually not that bad with that big flywheel. Might get tougher as I age though.

Congratulations. Great grinder.

Two things:
1) after seasoning the burrs, the number of cranks for a given mass of beans was literally halved.

2) light roasts are (unsurprisingly) very noticeably much harder to crank

===

if it's not against your ethos, there are motor kits that are very refined and easy to add. As in two bolts into existing holes. With variable digital speed control and brushless DC motors like Monoliths. Smooth quiet and refined.

My search didn't come up with anything bolt on. Exercise is good.

A tip that makes grinding a little easier. Start with the handle at 12 o'clock.
