  1. Cool, so Ā£100.26 is not bad at all....i hope you don't get any nasty surprises when it's delivered...i hope it does what you require of it as well šŸ˜‹
  2. @itguy that was such a nice gesture with the thermometer for @Emily.....you Sir are a gentleman....it's the little things like this that restores my faith in humanity šŸ˜‹
  3. ha ha "silverskin" collection....i always thought "Silverskins" were pickled-onions...got a jar of em in the fridge.
  4. @GameOverRob Hi Rob, welcome to the forum, i hope you enjoy your stay and have fun...it would be nice if you could post some pictures of your new machine and grinder in the "Show Off Your Setup" section of the forum, under a seperate post from this one...plenty on here would like to see them šŸ˜Ž
  5. @Mpbradford Very nice....is that "sign" a reproduction/original/other ? ....if available then where from ? ...many thanks in advance. šŸ˜Ž
  6. Thanks for that....i assume there was no mention of VAT ?
  7. 44 seconds...there's some beans "sat on the side" ... don't know/can't say if they'd get caught "eventually" or not, but if they didn't then that don't bode well. Anyone have any idea regarding the "proposed/final-goal-price" ....just curious.
  8. Hi, does it still have some/none of it's warranty left ? ....some items i'm led to believe have different warranty lengths, i.e. 1yr, 2yr or 3yr.
  9. It did indeed, thank you so very much šŸ˜‹
  10. What was the end price that you paid if you don't mind me asking ? ....was wondering if it all (conversion/shipping/vat??) was "under" the threshold of iirc Ā£135
  11. @GlenW I reeeeeeally do like those HG-1's....i very nearly pulled the trigger on one several moons ago.....i was watching one on fleabay for a while (a MK1 iirc) but it was too scratched/tatty for the price the seller wanted, so i bailed.....i still keep ummming and arrrghing over them....the idea of slapping a windscreen motor to one appeals to my inner geek; that and it'd make light-roasted beans easy to cope with....i believe hand grinding them can be a chore....YMMV.
  12. @Nightrider_1uk i must've missed that one....serves me right for not fully checking.
  13. @Karka nothing to do with me matey....i wonder if someone saw my comment and reacted on it lol...aka "that fat northern git (me) isn't having it !!" and purchased it lol šŸ˜‚
  14. I don't think they are "multi-voltage" (switch-mode) and are probably just a 110v "winding"....but seeing as i've never seen the insides of one then i "could" be wrong.....if it's just a winding-type motor then slapping 240v through it will grind you beans a tad faster...roflmao ...just before it sets off your smoke alarm and goes bang šŸ’„
  15. That don't look too bad IMO....it does look nice in Black šŸ˜Ž
