Thank you Moosepucky for suggesting these options! I will be getting both and I'll check out that mod, Orphan Espresso right? I still might end up getting an electric grinder purely out of laziness when guests come over.

The Hario Mini Slim has been great.. you can do a rubberband mod by removing the outer bur, wrapping a segment of rubberband (unles you can find one smaller or exactly the same size) and squeezing it back into place.
speaking of modding. If you replace the Skerton's grind adjustment with an M8 posilock nut and a small wrench to adjust the Skerton will be capable of anything. Infinite grind adjustments powder to press. :)
