Hi everybody. I have this bar grinder i bought a  couple of days ago; it works on 220volt and i did not plug it yet. The guy that sold it said it is a spaziale. I did not find anything on it on the net. If you can help me identify it and how I can tweak it i would be grateful.

None of the La Spaziale grinders I know looks like this. If it really is, it must be some older model. Where's the bean hopper?

I took out the hopper. It's kind of tall with  it in place.

Maybe I'll cut it shorter or I'll grind small batches without it.

looks Like a very old Anfim grinder, I think LS may have used or re-badged them once.

I believe that is the same thing as a La Cimbali Junior, which I think is actually a rebranded DRM JR.  I've owned one before and it's a very nice 60-something mm flat burr commercial grinder.  The doser action is nice and pretty clean.  If I recall the grounds exit the chute cleanly when single dosing.  It's simultaneously nice to work on and a pain.  It's built more like a prosumer espresso machine than the usual Italian motor-in-a-metal-shell design.  The entire exterior can be removed one piece at a time...which involves many screws.  I think there might be room to integrate a timer into the side, certainly room to add LED lighting to light up the recessed doser.  Pain about the hopper...it really isn't optional.
