Hi all,

In Q1 I developed a 80mm burr carrier for the Ultra. I had 3 items made. I have been using it since. Very happy with it. Alignment can be perfect as you can see in this video, but some shimming under the carrier is needed as the aluminium part where the carrier sits on is not perfectly flat.

Now I am wondering, is there any demand for an 80mm burr option for the Ultra? If there is, I can have a batch made. But to complete the set, I also have to make the upper carrier. (the red item in the pic). Levercraft is not producing an 80mm option and Mr Zhang is not exporting out of China anymore.

And also: what would be a fair price?

Please respond! Thanks in advance!

I guess there is no demand. I will put the 2 bottom carriers up for sale.

Thanks

Great work NelisB. I'd definitely be interested if I had an Ultra! Too bad they're unobtainable now!

This is actually what I had suggested to Mr. Zhang last year. I am really interested. :)

So Mr. Zhang is not currently producing 80mm carriers?

I don't know. But the issue is that he only ships to China
