Hi Everyone,

I have a GrindMaster 495 that's pretty well used. I bought it online about 10 years ago, but it just keeps grinding everything I throw at it. I'd like to figure out what will get me the best grind for the cheapest investment. If I purchased 80mm burrs from a higher quality grinder and fitted them to my machine, would I get the same quality grind as the more expensive machine? Does the quality of the grind come more from the burrs or the machine itself? I'm guessing it's the burrs, but I'd like to be sure before I spend money.

Thank you
