  1. The EG-1 was very easy to live with, similar to the Verslab. Of course it is a larger grinder than the Versalab, and the grind adjustment is stepped as opposed to continuous. In the end i decided to keep the Versalab because of its smaller footprint, grind quality, ease of use and quirky looks.
  2. The Versalab is still here because of its ease of use, size and design, and of course my wife likes the look of the Versalab. 😉 I am not the best person to ask regarding differentiating taste profiles, i only know what i prefer. The differences between the three burr configurations i have personally used / owned have been discussed much more eloquently and in finer detail by others. I can say that in my personal opinion the Versalab is closer to a large flat than a conical.
  3. I would say that it is right up there with them. I have owned several in the past, Mazzer Mini, SuperJolly, Major & Kony, Compak K10 PB, Elektra Nino and LynWeber EG-1, the majority at the same time as the Versalab. I still have the Versalab.
  4. Hi Tom, Of course you are correct with the original Versalab, one that has not been updated with the latest small pulley and double belt drive. With these latest upgrades it is possible to "run with a dose dumped in" , in fact that is my everyday usage since upgrading.
  5. Wrong Beagle ............. You obviously never watched Charley Brown 😉
  6. The Beagle has landed .............. 😀

  8. @lake_m Cheers. Fingers crossed. 🤞 😊
  9. Yes, that is correct. I agree but this is how it is shown in the exploded diagram that i have. Here it is in real life, so i must agree that it does indeed appear to be glued on somehow.
  10. @lake_m The part is screwed on from the rear / inside of the grinder head. and connected to the rest of the grinder via a ribbon cable. Eric
  11. @Rhys Here is the motor on Bodines' Web Site .. https://www.bodine-electric.com/products/dc-motors/33a-series-permanent-magnet-dc-motor/6034/ The motor is apparently used in industrial situations, mine has never missed a beat. First look at the Versalab M4 here : http://www.meticulist.net/blog/versalab-m4-grinder-first-look The Versalab M4 still uses the same motor as the M3.
  12. My apologies, that will teach me to read all of the posts before responding. 😊 It's a good job one of us is on the ball.
  13. Hi @Rhys, why not just get Versalabs' own solution, the M4 drive belt system : https://files7.webydo.com/92/9211413/UploadedFiles/13B3B20D-1BD8-65DB-98B8-421A57E60BC2.pdf
  14. Don't worry @Rhys You will be the first to know if i fancy a change. 👍😊
