  1. Might make sense to specify that the memberships are set to auto renew on Paypal, so in case somebody just wants to list an item and nothing else they might be better served by just paying the one off fee.
  2. I don't post much anymore, but had to drop this here, JH bought it.
  3. @P1Fanatic regular. Please tag me in case of further communications as I don't check things frequently.
  4. Details for the sale have now been agreed privately.
  5. Hi, For more details please refer to this: https://coffeeforums.co.uk/topic/58774-lelit-5855mm-premium-tamper/ £30 posted. Thanks
  6. Thanks for replying to my theories without dismissing them. I think most people on this board have poor understanding of the difference between "countering your speculation with speculation of their own"/"disagreeing with your speculation" and "dismissing your speculation".
  7. I am not expecting agreement - I have always been very open to disagreement.. I am expecting just a conversation, being dismissed as a "problem" for voicing a heavily-caveated point of view is at best frustrating. That said this will be rightfully and hopefully deleted by @DavecUK as we (I) are OT, I have no interest in discussing this further really, I am not being "sensitive", whatever that's supposed to mean.
  8. I don't think I've claimed I was right or that I was dispensing science. I'll show you my post, with in bold the elements that are meant to caveat what I said. most likely basic burrs which also might - I am speculating, as I've read this about stock burrs on Mazzers - happen to be tailored to produce good espresso for Italians. Good uniformity might not quite be desirable in that case (Italians drink dark roasted ristrettos and value mouthfeel way above anything else, including flavour clarity, where grind uniformity would be of help). Now, if somebody tried the SSP HU burrs and s
  9. The Italmill steel burrs are most likely basic burrs which also might - I am speculating, as I've read this about stock burrs on Mazzers - happen to be tailored to produce good espresso for Italians. Good uniformity might not quite be desirable in that case (Italians drink dark roasted ristrettos and value mouthfeel way above anything else, including flavour clarity, where grind uniformity would be of help). Now, if somebody tried the SSP HU burrs and still complained about bad results, then I would wonder whether there is something else (e.g. misalignment) at play. *none of
  10. The Facile can also be equipped with bellows to be used as a single doser, so I'm not super sure that this would improve the workflow (the Solo, however, probably retains far less on its own without using the bellows, in case you can't be asked to use them). I am not commenting on grind quality due to the larger burrs as I haven't tried myself. Can of worms.
  11. What do you mean? Did they achieve poor results? How were these poor results measured? And I would assume that any poorly aligned grinder would give issues..
  12. Shims, voltage, springs, forces, metal fatigue, capacitors.. Reading the last page had me think that one needs a PhD to set up a grinder.. Maybe I should stick to my hand grinder.
  13. @AnthonyTD thanks for the detailed info. Maybe I'm blind but could you circle the shims? I can't see any haha. Also, did you buy something specific for it or?
