Feld2 with bigger burrs! -

 

"The first 50 of these will be released in late August, a straightforward big burrset build of our Feld 2.

 

With 47mm blacksteel burrs, our unique dial lid with infinite "no stops" adjustment means that you can dial right in on your favoured flavour profile.

The bigger burrs grind approximately 40% faster than our standard 38mm sets and the Feld:honed's design makes for effortless grinding, all with the consistency the Feldgrind is famous for.

20 of these grinders are available now for pre-order before 12:00 July 2nd at a 33% discount. "

Could be a worthwhile upgrade. A little pricey though.

I'd still get a decent price for my Feld1, they're just great grinders.

GS3 MP, Ceado E92 and E37s, Feldgrind. Niche.

I don't need another handgrinder, I don't need another handgrinder, I don't...

 

:) Same here with a Niche on the way too but the discount made the decision a lot easier!

 

Question for me is if it is a straightforward Feld2 build with bigger burrs will it get a longer handle to compensate for the extra effort. Or maybe it doesn't need it.

This is so tempting... what if next year the 68mm version arrives?

I emailed him asking if there will be any design changes on outer burr holding but no reply yet. Would be nice actually if it d be like kinu style, i mean no screw to hold it just slots in tightly and stays there.

From the picture of the outer burr it looks like it should either be keyed in or held with a grub screw, or both. Using a standard Feld2 chassis would mean less aluminium to place a grub screw in so it would be interesting to see the solution. Hopefully not a simple press fit.

Can't help but wonder why they didn't throw these larger burrs in a hausgrind first. If they did I would definitely have signed up. As it is I be still on the fence so to speak.

I'd be all over a Walnut Hausgrind with the bigger burr set!

Discounted ones sold out already - although if the retail price is actually £210 then his maths is bad as its more than a 33% discount to get to £130.

 

Anyway, £210+VAT at £42 + £10 shipping end up being quite pricy - especially for MBK. Might have been tempted at £160ish but at £260ish its too pricey for me!

Just had an update, good news/ bad news.. to summarise -

 

Running about 7 days behind schedule..

 

But the really good news...

 

the good news is they decided mid month to add some additional length to the crank arm to provide extra leverage against the 47mm's increased resistance over the standard Feldgrind's 38mm burrs! :) :) :)

 

Good news indeed, was hoping and I'm sure will make all the difference. the delay is due to the note for 100 extra long crank rods was read as 100 extra crank rods. Woops.
