Thanks Wayne! Payment received. Will try to get it out tomorrow or Monday the latest.

I am sure there're plenty people out there that are more than eager to know the result! Unfortunately, my palate wasn't refined enough(not that it is very refined now) when I had both SJ and Major , and now I don't have the SJ to compare. From my current usage experience, the grind setting on Major seems to have huge spot. The setting usually stays there for a few days at least or until I change coffee. I always change my coffees and quite often,they're the same setting.


Thanks again Wayne!

Grinder arrived safely, box has seen better days but did not affect the grinder!

The photos do not do, er, justice, to the condition of the paint LOL! The many missing parts will be replaced with Mazzer OEM parts. The paint will be completely redone.

The motor seems strong and the burrs are indeed razor sharp so  the add was accurate.

The only bummer is that someone, sometime, had removed ALL the stickers, including the one with the serial number and the date of mfg.

Well, off to order parts!

Wayne,

Glad that you got it safely!

Yes, it was indeed removed by the previous owner. It came to me that way, as I said, some cosmetic issues but none that affect the usability. Still, I am sorry because I thought it was apparent in the photos in the link. *apologize*

In any way I could make up to you, let me know. I am sending you an email.

Sam.
I am sorry to have the indication that I received less than I paid for, I did NOT! It was a fair price, the pics DID show the condition of the paint (does not matter in the least as it will all be stripped and repainted anyway and it is all the same work!) in person you just see a little more LOL!!!!! NOT UPSET!!!!!!

Like I said, the motor is strong and the burrs are new, aside from paint issues and a few screws and the feet missing (you DID mention that) it is sound in condition. If there was ANY indication that I was less than satisfied, please everyone know Sam is top shelf and I would happily do business again should the option come up!

I have had issues with the feet on these grinders in about half of them I see, totally normal, banged up paint, totally normal, missing data tag, not so much but I have seen them pretty nasty! I can understand why a prior owner would remove one.

Sam is a great person to deal with and I do NOT want anyone to take my comments in a negative light about him!

Thanks Wayne for the kind words. It's cool between us, no apologize needed. Like I said, if there's anyone should apologize, it's probably me. I probably could have make it much clearer(that's my fault partially as it takes much time to type a post and I was posting so many sales at a time ; so I took the lazier way and assumed pictures would do the job). I will take note of this next time. Thanks again!
