I have a commercial espresso grinder with no ID Info on it.  I need to change the burrs, but my measurements don't seem to match.  I have looked at images of many grinders, but nothing seems to look like mine.  I am attaching a picture.  Burr measures approx.  64mm OD, 37.46 ID, 8.89mm Ht, Rh
Measurements are conversion from a non metric micrometer.
 Please help.  Thanks.

PS:  I have more pictures, but it looks like I can only show one at a time.

Looks like a Nuova Simonelli MCD, but with a doser attached.  I can't say that I'm familiar with this configuration...I think of MCDs a grocery/shop grinders.

russel:  Thanks for the link.  That is the closest picture that I have seen, but if you look at the picture of the top, you will see that it is different.  Please  let me know if there is any measurement or other image that would help with the ID.  Thanks

Indeed they are, I have one. It does a pretty darn good as a third tier (for me) espresso grinder. It grinds properly and has a lot of adjustment but as it is intended to go a wide range of grinds, the adjustment is pretty sensitive (small movements make big changes) when grinding for espresso. It is a high quality grinder though, I am glad I have mine.

The linked pic is odd to say the least. I have never seen one like that.3

Also, it looks like there is a timer on the side of your grinder. The MCD is just an on/off switch.

I would also think about an older Eureka (contivalerio.com). Eureka builts the NS grinders. They just changed their whole range, so it may be a bit difficult to find the right model.

Thanks Marcus:  The problem I am having is that the web images for most of the espresso grinders are the current line.  I have not been able to find images of older models.  I think I may have to send my burrs to a supply house and have them match the size.  I don't have access to a metric micrometer to get an accurate reading on the measurements.
