It's a MAX with SSW burrs.

It's really exciting to me as a Patreon supporter that James is so eager to take suggestions from his viewers. I couldn't believe it when he told me he had just bought one for the channel at my recommendation! It's wild to think the review is finally coming out this week.

Thank you for a making a dedicated thread to this, I'm excited to watch these. Can't wait for the comparison at the end. I wonder how many shots he's going to pull to compare 5 grinders. Hopefully more than 5 :lol:

I like how his viewers pull James Hoffman quotable quotes and comment on his youtube channel. Some viewers compare these grinders to telescopes and microscopes. Wwhat?

I used my EG-1 to pull shots for lots of small groups for a couple years, and I can't remember a single group where someone didn't walk into the kitchen and ask why I had a microscope there. Go figure.

The Monoliths absolutely look like a microscope. Tilted circular opening as your ocular and a flat area with grooves in it to hold your slides.

That EG-1 is just gorgeous. But that Option-O looks more like a microscope but also really nice as a grinder as well, and for less than half the price of the EG-1.

EK review is up. Tl;dw: It's a bulk/shop grinder.

Not sure which burrs are on it.

I have this old grinder sitting in my closet but I can't find replacement burrs- or is that bulbs?
