I bought a second Kinu manual grinder, this time Kinu Simplicity, and I also motorized this one. This motorization is more electronic, the electrical parameters of the motor are indicated on the front panel, as well as the grinding speed.

I built another engine with the same electronic technology, this time I used a different type of gear motor.

Amazing work. I've been toying with the concept and blew it by ordering too small a motor. lol

Man, this is awesome. Have always loved the idea of having a good hand grinder that can be motorized. I make due with clamping my Pharos down but having a hand grinder that can also be motorized sounds awesome.

Nice work no doubt, but based on the cost (USD anyway) for the motor it's a bit steep all things considered...

I also built a cheaper version, using an electric motor from a screwdriver, but the results are more modest.
