lol...i don't think i conveyed my message properly, so i'll rephrase it....

"where can i buy one of those insulated steel French Press's" you was asking/referring to Econ several post's up....the link i was asking for was hopefully someone that you had purhased or could recommend buying one (the insulated steel) from.....my apologies if i wasn't clear in my initial request.

Aaah apologies, I use Bodum Columbia French presses for long steeps. Double benefits of insulated press & the silicone edged plunger mesh really helps to keep silt down when pouring. I brew for an hour to 90min at ~65g/L, grind size is ~11% 400Kruve, or just on the coarser side of 1 mug V60.

No apology necessary, i deduced you'd probably misread my request.

Just found it...not cheap (as opposed to my cheap crappy glass version); i'll print out one and leave it lying around as a hint for SWMBO; my birthday is looming; fingers crossed the penny drops :classic_wink:

What is your press made of, glass or insulated steel. This is important.

Ignore the descriptions on the Niche fascia, "50" is more "medium" than "coarse". One full turn on the Niche would be coarse.

I’m using a Bodmum Glass French Press ~500ml.

When you say one full turn I am assuming that would be with the dial starting on calibrate and returning to calibrate after a full turn?

One full turn would be 0 all the way round to 0 again, but I wouldn't go that coarse for a 500ml brew in a single walled glass press, more like 55-60 with an NFC disc, 60-65 without?

One full turn (or a little less) would be the coarsest setting I'd use for a manual drip brew.
