Posting a picture always helps . . .

Is it one of these?

I had to downsize this to fit so this is a picture of a picture. I have only found one photo on the internet with no info so any info you have is greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch!

Hi coffee lovers,

    Apparently I have stumped everyone. Easy to understand. I have had my grinder close to 6 months and as I said, I have only found 1 picture on the net. While enjoying my espresso this morning I called a friend of mine who suggested I contact the Electra Co. or one of it's affiliates. I'm going to give that a try but if anyone has any info or suggestions I would graciously appreciate it. Thank you for the reply JasonBrandtLewis but as you can see by my picture it is quite different from any of the ones in the photo you so kindly posted.

    Thank you,
    PeeWee

I'm pretty sure that 1982 is the year of manufacture and not the model.  At any rate, I suggest that you contact Stefano at espressoparts.com.  He appeared to know something about the same model grinder in an old thread on H-B.  If you need parts for the grinders, and parts there are to be had, he can steer you in the right direction.  

Plus, he's a great guy and worth knowing just for the pleasure of the acquaintance.  

Rich

Hi Rich! You are correct,1982 is the year of manufacture. Stefano and I exchanged emails earlier and he said it  was a"very old grinder,,,,,made until 85-86"and the burrs might be the same as the current models.  That was all he could tell me. So the search continues for any info I can find or anyone can help me with. Any kind of manual would be great. If any of us out there can help with resources please do, it would be greatly appreciated  Thanks for the help, Lisa
