Most dark room timers have a place for a foot switch. I wired around the switch in my major and just use the stomp box.  :)

 
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.

So, is the auber timer for build-in only?
If I just want a timer to sit on the counter, am I better off with a darkroom timer?

Depends, the dark room timer you don't have to alter your grinder but takes more space. That same site sells one that works like a dark room timer but cost a hundred bucks. Or you can take this timer,stick it in a box and alter your machine.

I' I hate wasting grounds, so I measure enough beans for each shot, but they "popcorn" in the hopper.  Any barista will tell you a grinder works best with a full hopper.

Posted September 30, 2013 link

I close the gate after adding beans to my SJ. Keeps everything down in the burrs AND, I can add a second shot of beans above the closed gate so all I need to do is open the gate to drop the second weigh, close the gate then add another shot to the top and grind away.    No muss, no fuss, no flying beans :)

I grind one weight (portafilter) at a time and turn the grinder on until it is finished with the weighed beans, then chuck the dosser until it is empty.  I have 3 grinders on the counter so no room for a timer :(
