You have good eyes! I hadn't seen that missing screw....

I guess I will be stressed for the next 2 weeks until it gets here now! Hopefully it is packed well enough so that nothing gets damaged...

haha how about that ;) I somehow had the feeling there just HAD to be someone from this forum betting on that grinder!

I will for sure let you know how it works out. Right now my only fear is about the shipping. I'm actually in Canada so it has a long way to go, and I know how "careful" they sometimes are with these heavy packages...

Goodluck for your ebay hunt!

That makes 3 of us, I was bidding on it last weekend before I found out it was 220V, that's a little difficult to set up for me.
also lost a bet one for a Mazzer Mini

Ended up winning a Rossi RR45, still waiting for it, this one has to travel all the way to Japan!

The plug looks like a regular 110V.

I thought it was 110V too, so I bet on it a couple of times.

Then I asked the seller and said it was 220V.

It wasn't even listed on the specifications.

At least if you sell you can now put that money for a mazzer major.
Or you could get a transformer.

If it is really a 220 maybe you can return it, as it was not disclosed.  I bet it will not be an easy resell.

I don't believe it is 220V, but if it is...

Not mentioning 220V is essentially false advertising. That seller is a pro. He will have to take it back. And IMO he ought to pay your return ship costs.

That plug looks like a 3 prong grounded 110V plug to me.  But, nowhere in this ad does it say 110V.  Where's the false advertising?  All it says is it works, and it comes as pictured. Obviously it wouldn't be very nice, because we all assume that since it's being sold in North America it is designed to work on North American power, but I don't see any false advertising.  The guy may take it back, because the ad says "If your unhappy with any item please email and we can work something out. I'm very flexible."  Did you ask him if he used it?  If he says it works then I assume he at least tested it, which implies it worked and is 110V.

Posted May 3, 2009 link

omission. it's reasonable to assume its 110V, as most of us did.

it's also clear that 220V limits the buyer pool substantially, and thus it's value.
