  1. Yup you can, it what's I did with an electric screwdriver. That screwdriver didn't have enough torque to grind anything. By the time I took my large drill out I ended up using the hex so I don't know if it affects anything (like providing additional torque). I've put the top back on, but I'll give it a go directly next time I take the crank off.
  2. Thanks @Stevebee, looks like it was just a bit stuck. Gave it a hard pull, and it came off. I don't mind the hand grinding at all, but wanted to give this a quick try in case I got inundated with guests some day. For day to day though, I'll stick with the hand crank.
  3. @Stevebee did you order the hex tool, to be able to use an electric drill? I did, but i can't seem to take off the top of the grinder, to use it. Helor said "After removing the screw at the base of the bending rod, pull the bending rod assembly", but it wont shift. Is it something you've tried? I'm not sure if there's another screw I'm missing. I've gone back to Helor today, just awaiting their reply.
  4. I've also had my Helor 106 for a few weeks now. It was ordered to replace a Comandante, which I found just couldn't be adjusted granular enough to dial in espresso (this was without the red clix attachment). The Helor is the first high end grinder I've owned, so I don't really have a reference point but I am super happy with it. My current beans are a 1.1.1 on the markings. Built like an absolute tank, and with virtual no grind retention. It has improved the espresso I get out of my Cafelat Robot immensely, I get very even pours (no channeling) and I can finally get the clarity to taste t
  5. Thanks for the heads up @Stevebee, I also ended up buying one not too long after my initial post! It's been a bit of a whirlwind few months, and I've been meaning to post about it sooner... I shall add my experiences to the post you made in the Grinders forum, I've just found it.
  6. Oh, I hadn't spotted that. That is very neat. I'm still on the hunt for a connected scale, with a lack of time to roll my own, I'm still tempted to get an Acaia some day. In the meanwhile my very cheap scales haven't stopped me from getting some great shots with this, especially since I upgraded to a Helor 106 grinder.
  7. I can completely relate to what you're saying - the geek in me would love to have a whole bunch of data out of my Robot. If it were cheaper I'd seriously consider this: https://www.naked-portafilter.com/product/smart-espresso-profiler-for-machines-with-an-e61-group-head-new-stock-expected-end-of-november-copy/
  8. Order placed on Sunday night, received on Tue morning. Great service.
  9. Great service, thanks for sorting out so quickly. Order placed, looking forward to receiving it.
  10. Great news @Cafelat UK, at long last. Can I ask if the shipping calculator is working correctly on the site? The cheapest shipping option is £10.96 when I select just the pack of paper filters, which seems quite high for something so small and light.
  11. Unfortunately so… I think it is pure luck really.
  12. I ended up buying mine from Hazel n Hershey in Hong Kong, and it came in about 5 working days, which I thought was pretty good considering the distance. Shipping was still expensive though. On a somewhat related note... if anybody is placing an order, I'm hoping to get a second basket and some filter papers to go with mine. Mainly because there are times when I want to leave the hassle of basket cleanup till the end of the day, so it'd be handy to have one to rotate. But I can't quite stomach the shipping fees for such a small order, and can't really find any closer sources. If anybo
  13. This might be a bit leftfield, but if you're looking for compactness... I got one of these a few weeks ago: https://www.helor.com/product/helor-106-hand-coffee-grinder/ It has a Mazzer 0186c 71mm conical burr. I'm very happy with it, though as it is my first, and only "high end" grinder, I'm not sure how it stands compared to others. It has a drill bit attachment for those times when you dont want to hand grind, but as it's such a quick process, I've never ended up using it.
  14. View Advert Comandante C40 Hand Grinder in Cobalt Blue I’ve decided to sell my trusty cobalt blue Comandante C40, after upgrading to a Helor 106 (what can I say, hand grinders seem to be my thing). I bought it new in September last year. I’m on a strict 1 coffee a day since lockdown started, so this has had maximum 4kg of cofee put through it for my daily v60. I’ve carefully checked and can see no scratches or marks anywhere on the body, it’s always been very well treated at home. Fully boxed as when I received it new, including the spare glass

    I’ve decided to sell my trusty cobalt blue Comandante C40 nitro blade, after upgrading to a Helor 106 (what can I say, hand grinders seem to be my thing). I bought it new in September last year. I’m on a strict 1 coffee a day since lockdown started, so this has had maximum 4kg of cofee put through it for my daily v60. I’ve carefully checked and can see no scratches or marks anywhere on the body, it’s always been very well treated at home. Fully boxed as when I received it new, including the spare glass jar with lid (which has never been used). I’ve cleaned the burrs with an espresso brush, but not fully taken it apart or used any chemicals on it, so it should be fully seasoned and ready to go. I’m looking for £180 inc postage (or socially distanced pickup in North London), with payment via bank transfer.

    £180
