  1. Very similar to mine! I can confirm the grinding quality on this machine is fantastic and very consistent! Great price too!
  2. It’s way too big for our tiny kitchen! Worth the work surface real estate though. We now prepare food on the hob surface! [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Aye it’s magic. The grinder is just a world apart from anything else I’ve had. Super fluffy, consistent grinds every time. I’m on the lookout for a small E-61 to refurb to get the most out of it but for now the Gaggia is doing a fantastic job! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Aye. Actually it was a real schlep picking up the grinder as I’m halfway to Oxford. It was totally worth it though. Hopefully it’ll outlast me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Many thanks. I’m not really that close to London. I’m not really sure how I’d describe the screw to them over the phone other than the length/diameter. I’ve other screws that match but the thread is different. I was hoping there might be someone familiar with Mazzers that might know the exact specs. That shop looks very handy though!

  6. Just one niggling thing is I just cannot find the right screw for the plate that goes behind the dosing funnel. One is missing. If anyone knows of the exact spec of the screw please let me know! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. What kind of wood is that? It’s just lovely. [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Hi folks! I’ve been using a Silvia with a Eureka Zenith for a couple of years and fancied a change. Particularly as I was finding the Silvia really inconsistent compared to my work Gaggia Classic. I had another beat up old Italian built Classic I’d wanted to refurbish but never had the time so when the old covids arrived, I found myself with some time on my hands. After stripping down the Classic, refurbishing and rebuilding it, I had gotten the restoration bug. I saw a completely haunted looking Mazzer Major on Facebook marketplace for £100 and took a punt. I picked it up from a Turkish barbers shop in East London. The thing was full of ancient grinds and human hair when I opened it up! A couple of weeks later I’d completely resprayed it, rebuilt it, and modded it for home use with some 3D printed parts I’m still refining. I also managed to find some genuine Mazzer titanium burrs on eBay for £40! the whole setup cost me under £250! Probably about a grand in man-hours though! 😂 I’m now on the hunt for a small footprint E-61 group machine that’s needing some TLC to bring back to life.
  10. I kind of got the refurbishing bug after fixing up the haunted Mazzer Major I bought! Fancied another wee project. Was holding out for an older Mara but they’re still a bit pricey for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Incidentally if anyone out there has a similar small footprint E-61 group machine needing a bit of TLC, I’m looking for a wee refurb job! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. If for any reason this doesn’t work out, I’d like to be next in line at asking please! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Boom! It’s a deal! We’ll move to PM and if mods could kindly move this to sold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Great. I’ll have a look later on today. I’d imagine fully insured and it weighing 15kgs before double boxing it’ll be in the region of £25 to £35. Like I said, I’d still like to prioritise pickup as I’d hate to see this thing destroyed in transit! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
