  1. SOLD: Mazzer Super Jolly Timer - modified for single dosing I've decided that for now I prefer hand grinding so for sale is my Mazzer Super Jolly. Details: - Doser removed and replaced with home made funnel - Lens hood mod - Burrs replaced in June 2015 with maybe 8kg of coffee through them since.Plenty of life left and barely broke in - Original hopper included with sale - Original doser included - Grinds tray not available, but available to buy relatively cheaply if it matters to you. - Grinder is in good condition, motor is nice and quiet, burrs spin true, all cleaned out and ready to go. I've loved using the grinder and I seem to be able to get retention down to really low amounts using RDT, lens hood and a paint brush to clear grinds. The grinder produces good grinds which in combination with my technique, gives consistent shot times. Asking price = £240 + P&P at your risk (although I will pack it up good) or Swap for OE Pharos or Swap for a nice vintage lever machine (apart from a caravel, which I already have and love) Pics:
  2. Hello, I've just modified my Mazzer Super Jolly automatic with a doserless funnel. The process was quite easy to follow using the various guides that are scattered around the web. It ended up looking like this: I have installed the 50Hz anti-static screen between the gasket and the funnel, and the grinds just back up behind the screen so much that they jam the motor! I wondered if anyone else has any experience with conversion to doserless, anti-static screens etc. Without the screen, the coffee is usable but it does clump and suffers a little with static. With the screen I cannot get grounds out of the chute at all. Should the funnel be grounded? My doser had two pairs of wires going to the board: a light grey pair for the automatic cut off microswitch at the top of the doser, and a dark grey pair that disappeared inside the dosing lever mechanism. I have no idea what this pair was for. You can see them in these pics: and And hello — this is my first post here!
  3. Hi folks, Some have probably noticed that i was warking on some old clone of Mazzer SJ (astoria). I dont want to bother you showing all the process but wanted to share some before and after photos. Here they are: And new "hopper" with "inspection glass" Everyone knows that the hopper is the collapsible 3in1 lens cover. The lid is a jar lid from IKEA I happen to have for a long time. Upcomming works on this: 3D printed fork rest for the portafilter backplate motor cover timer relay - if I'll find something that would fit my needs. Let me have your thoughts and comments on this little project. cheers
  4. 2014 auto model, recently acquired, but surplus now that I have made my mind up on which grinder I want to keep. Also included is the free choice of a laser etched adjustment gauge currently available in gloss black, silver mirror, matt silver, grey, smoke mirror and of course the red (You don't have to keep my terrible red colour scheme!) The grinds tray is a quick creation that serves its purpose, but could be a little bigger. It rests against the grinders feet but does not clip in place. The lid for the lens hood is laser cut and an exact fit so creates a good seal for blowing out the exit chute. (I have a spare in electric blue that the buyer can have instead of red ) The doser counter had just under 4900 when I picked it up, so would assume the burrs have had either 40kg or 120kg through them, depending if the counter is on its first trip around or not. The burrs felt acceptable to me and considering they are supposed to last about 400kg I have not changed them. When cleaning out the grind chamber I removed the burrs, but didn't remove the lower burr carrier. The doser and associated switches have been removed and replaced with a fudge funnel, but all parts are included if you want to convert back. The doser is missing the finger guard and front tamper plus associated screws. I cleaned the doser parts, but did not remove the lower vanes as I assume the funnel is going to be used instead. The grinder has a few notable chips at the front corners, plus a number of random little chips around the body that don't photograph well and are not that visible. For some strange reason an extra hole has been tapped between the portafilter fork holes. The original forks are missing, so I have attached the prototype I created (but never fully evolved). It holds the portafilter nicely under the funnel outlet, but the portafilter is held at an angle. If the laser cutter gets working again soon, I will make a different version of the forks. Asking £180 with collection in London, right near Notting Hill Gate tube station.
  5. Anybody know if it is possible to remove the doser attachment and fit, if obtainable, the spout attachment of the non-doser. I've never taken to the doser, and the need to count the 13 clicks needed to empty it every time.
  6. Looking for a new home for my very rarely used Mazzer Super Jolly (probably once a week over the last 2 years, if that). I partially modified it to be doserless but didn't get around to installing a proper guard for the motor. To collect from Leeds or will deliver a short distance away. Full set of photos: https://imgur.com/a/cTJdr Looking for £150 but please make me an offer
  7. Decided to make my first proper contribution to this forum, as I at last feel like I might have something original to share. To set the scene - my set up is some 10 years old SJ towering over a post-millenium Europiccola. I acquired the kit right around Christmas time, SJ from an office close down sale and EP from the bay. Both were slightly bunged up but as dramatically as you sometimes see on this forum. Basically a good strip down, clean, and change of burrs and gaskets was good enough for me, especially since I'm basically doing all of this on my living room table with whatever tools I can borrow from friends. Getting to the point here, with my limited "workshop" capabilities, the doser proved to be a worthy adversary when it came to disassembly. Little by little everything came apart except (you guessed it) the dreaded bottom vane. Out of principle I refused to attach anything that I hadn't meticulously cleaned onto my darling SJ. Having tried every trick I could find online, I temporarily settled with what I call the "ghetto mod". This actually served me really well for the 2 odd months but let's face it, it looks hideous. Enter a colleague of mine, who I fortuitously overheard talking about his 3D printer one day at work. This is something that had crossed my mind before, but I never really investigated it further. Partly because I thought it would be too costly, partly as I had no experience in 3D designing. A few tips from the aforementioned individual and an intense Sunday afternoon later, I've now got my hands on the first version that only cost me half a reel of PLA filament and a few quid for electricity used. (=£15) The driving points in my design were Covers the whole gap into the base, attaching with both the bottom and top screws for stability. Dispenses onto the standard portafilter fork. (Although my PF is naked so wouldn't matter) Funnel opening is tailored for my 51mm portafilter. Is at least somewhat pleasing to the eye. I also made it easier for myself by using the same measurements of the original doser as a basis, despite the fact the I could've used this opportunity to slim down the profile of the grinder. I suppose visually its bulkiness provided some balance for the heft of the base. I know you're just here for the pics so here you go: Basic profile Front Top I'm really happy with how the bottom screw panel turned out Now, this is just the raw version straight out of the printer, so I still need to: Sand down the edges Drill screw holes and chute gap Coat whole thing with food grade epoxy (PLA is technically food safe but 3D printing as a manufacturing method is not) Print a lid Hopefully I will remember to post an update after every step. If I ever do make a v2, I'll definitely print it slightly thinner, 5mm seemed like a good idea for a rookie but turned out to be a massive overkill. The standard screws might be too short to attach that monster now. Secondly I'm a bit worried if I made the vertical lip at the bottom too short to stop the grounds from sliding off diagonally. I also might consider just removing the PF fork and printing a slim profile funnel since I don't use the fork with my bottomless PF anyway. I'm happy to share the 3D model .stl file with anyone interested (for non-commercial purposes), but take no responsibility for how yours might turn out. Keep in mind that some services online quoted a price tag £150 for this model so I would assume this is only economical if you have access to a printer yourself one way or the other. Also I can't give any advice for the actual printing process (temperatures, materials, nozzle speed etc.) as I know basically nothing about that side of things! Any other questions I'm happy to answer.
