I offer for your consideration today a Mazzer SJ. Selling as I upgraded to a Ceado 37S a few months ago. While it's been fun having 2 grinders around, this has to stop before I get too used to it!
For background, I bought this off eBay 2.5 years ago. It was in a messy condition externally, and was missing a few parts. However, the internals were sound and I was going to use it for single dosing anyway, so the lack of a hopper and doser lid was a non-issue.
There are a few points I want to get out of the way first:
No hopper, will include the camera lens hood that I've been using for single dosing though
No doser lid
No grind adjustment lever (haven't found this an issue since the adjustment threads are in excellent condition)
Paint chipping in a couple of places (all of these are reflected in the photos)
The power cord has some paint stains on it, haven't bothered to try if these would come off with the right solution.
I have intentionally snapped off the security pin on the star screw holding the bottom plate, so that it doesn't require a special security bit to open.
Having a hard time locating the original bottom screws for the doser, so selling under the assumption that they are not included.
Given the above, this particular SJ is naturally better suited for someone looking to single dose, as in this case only the grind adjustment lever is an inconvenience.
Now for the positive parts - I replaced the burrs when I bought the machine, so they are in excellent condition and have had about 30kg through them. This is likely an overestimation but I want to be on the safe side. I've routinely switched the burrs around when cleaning so the wear should be very even. The bearings seem to be in good condition, judging by the lack of odd sounds or vibrations when grinding. Overall I've had no issues with the grinder whatsoever, and in my judgement have taken good care of it. Paired excellently with my Europiccola until I got upgraditis.
I have done my normal cleaning routine just today, also regreased the dosing mechanism though I haven't used it. The only part I'm unable to clean is under the vanes as I don't have the right tools to disassemble them. The bit under the lower burr carrier was last cleaned when I bought the grinder, as it is a slightly risky maneuver and quite frankly I didn't find that much under there back then compared to the rest of the burr chamber.
Price £160 with collection from central London. Offers accepted. Pricing to sell quickly before I go on holiday June 20th. If the grinder doesn't sell by then (meaning sold and collected), I will have to hold off on the sale until I return from holiday in August.
Cash on collection, PayPal, or bank transfer fine. If desired, you are welcome to test the grinder when collecting. Alternatively happy to meet you halfway within reason.
