Aw Doc, don't feel bad. Some day you'll grow up and understand the subtleties of this big people talk. Image

I decided I needed a bit of a change so I roasted some Monsooned Malabar. That was a change!

Hi guys,

hidden pulley, shaft and top adjustment via a long screw. It will be an espresso-oriented grinder so I don't really care about fast grind changes. Should be easy to clean, small and quiet.

Regards,

Hoping to build a prototype in MDF in the next couple of weeks. If anyone knows someone with a CNC machine to cut out some bits on the budget, I'd be more than grateful. Or if you want to sponsor a project, feel free to PM me;) If only I knew more people in the industry eh?

Regards,
dsc.
