Well done with the wood spacer on the catch cup. That looks great.

Those were the reasons that led me to this grinder as well.

That spacer idea is a good one! Does it need tape or something with high friction surface so that it won't slid off of filter holding bracket when grinding?

There was no info on it at the time but it looked good. I wanted a niche but they were (are) crazy expensive in Canada for something with so much plastic.

Thanks for the post! Great info. I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind.

1) where did you buy it from? Looks like best route these days is getting a Taobao agent and order through alibaba.

2) how heavy do you find it? I'm thinking about getting this one and keeping it at work. Given the other option may be a lagom mini, I'm willing to spend the extra on this. Otherwise I'd just go for a hand grinder.

3) any issues dropping in SSP burrs?

Black colour looks great with the rpm controller!

nope, never have a problem with it sliding off.

1- I bought it on Alibaba, direct from the manufacturer.
2- It's not light, around 9-10kg. Heavy enough that it never shakes/moves when grinding.
3- ssp burrs fit fine for me, but as mentioned, stock burrs are more than fine.
