A used K30 just came up near me.

Was used in a small cafe.

4 years old.

Single Count (SC) = 8200
Double Count (DC)= 2800

Counts seem low to me. That is only about 5 - 6 singles a day and 2 doubles a day over a 4 year period.  

So I'm thinking that is pretty good.

Advice on what you would expect to pay?

50% of new ?

I'd say 50%-75% the new price would be fair it the grinder is in good shape.  Personally I'd spend that money on a Macap M4D or M7D but that's me. :)

Mine was listed for 350 - I showed up with 3 100 dollar bills and walked with the grinder...

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Found a K30 in Toronto but apparently she won't sell the grinders apart from the 3 group Faema.
