I use the older Kafatek WDT tool to defeat the safety switch on Niche, when using puffer.
Never load Niche hot... it popcorns violently.
Since my work MAX is out on loan, I'm using exclusively Niche Zero with LR currently. It's a great grinder. If you are unable/unwilling to pay for an MC3, or are frustrated by the Kafatek lottery, then this is 85-90% as good, at a very nice price point.
Not sure if coincidence or mere timing but I'm seeing many Kafatek conical grinders come up on Buy/Sell here with 3 currently listed. Seems that there is a market here for sub 1K good single dose grinders. Maybe Denis could consider a Taiwanese built cousin to address the demand. I digress as that would be an entirely different subject.
