The problem is where?
At the moment I have 3 Majors, a doserless SJ, Azoyken Capricieo, NS MCD65, Curtis GSG, Bunn G92 HD and a Solis 166 then there are 2 commercial espresso machines a Sylvia, three air pot brewers (2 pour over and a plumb in) Bunn RL decanter brewer plumb in http://www.bunn.com/products/automatic/rl.html Moka pot, vac pot, Hario V60 and two Aeropresses.

If a good deal comes along, yep, I will pick it up, so again I ask......

The problem is where? :P

It's an internal struggle between the innate frugality of one born with  "the knack" (i.e. "cheap azz engineer") and the need for the next koolest shiny gadget...

Embrace the inner "grinder whore" its just easier ;0) Actually the love of good tools fits "the knack" now if you were spending money on clothes or something superficial you might have to consider turning in your membership card.

 
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

Awesome news! As the proud owner of LIDOs #002 and #003, I'll look forward to reading your impressions. Don't think you'll be disappointed re: grind consistency and build quality. Btw, have you been following the HB owner experience thread on this grinder? If not, here's a link to what I'd consider a "must" (and cheap) mod for it: Click Here (www.home-barista.com)
