I really only use the grinder for french press, but I would like an opinion from someone with some know how regarding how good or bad this side of the burr set looks to you. I got the machine for $50 - and I have already taken it apart and cleaned and restored and adjusted it per the users manual.  But I would like an honest opinion of the burr teeth.  Thanks!!

well, from the pic, they look OK.

Those are not machined burrs, rather there are rows of interspaced studs that get closer and closer as you move in. The burrs are warrantied for 30,000 POUNDS of coffee so I suspect that they should be just fine. There is a link to a manual here thanks to 1st Line.

Please do not use ALL the space in your thread title. The forum software adds RE: to the replies and that is added to the title. If you use all the space, then whoever replies to you has to edit you title so that they can post.

Sorry, just a pet issue with me :O

You cannot tell by looking at them unless they are severely damaged. To test them: Grind coffee, brew coffee, taste coffee.
