    In theory yes it would, but we all know what happens to theory when those money grabbing barstewards get that hands on something for the average person.

    But the paperwork will back up that the goods have gone back for repair. Legally there is no right by customs to charge VAT on the returned repaired goods (no idea about the postage cost though)

    I once ordered an item of clothing from USA and the sizing guide was off so had to return it for another size.

    Had to pay the UPS driver cash to cover customs and UPS fee of £10 both times. After filling out a long form, providing proof of postage of the return and waiting about 6 weeks I got the original tax back. No refund of the £10 fee.

    Point of interest: the Lido 1 and 2 and the Hausgrind all use the same burrs as an MC2.
    Actually that's not entirely correct, the lido 1 and 2 use different burrs for example, see

    I'm not sure either manufacturer has stated precisely which burrs they use.

    I know Peter said it was the same as one of the Lido burr sets, I did notice from that linked thread that the parts for the Lido are being machined in China/Taiwan whereas the Knock is being machined by people here in the UK which ,for me, would be the clincher as I'd rather support a homegrown product.

    I thought I read that the Lido 2 burrs were made by Rossi in Italy. Outsourcing to Taiwan is probably inevitable when trying to break out of the niche market to ...er, a slightly bigger, slightly less niche market? ;-)

    Even with duty & shipping the difference between Lido 2 & MBK shouldn't be big enough to make a significant impact. The Lido 2 holds more beans, but this may not be relevant to most users.

    Me too, I didn't know it existed. I'd much rather buy homegrown, for all the reasons mentioned

    Can anyone say if the Hausgrind will do a capable job of grinding fine enough for espresso in a Classic? I only need low production so the manual nature doesn't bother me
