Hi all, The title says it all.

My SJ, new STYLE in a 8.5-9/10 cosmetic condition and a 10/10 mechanical condition just isn't being used anymore. There is a scuff on the left side of the grinder that is not seen in the pics.

About 50# through the new burrs, "designer" aftermarket lever for the adjustment ring, doser lid, timer version of the new style model in grey/silver.
listed for less than what I have into it $500 OBO. Shipping is about $45 LA, to NY.

Pics are from when I was using it, along with an older green model which has since been sold to a CG member.

Listing Details
Asking / Suggested Price: 500
Seller Name: Wayne Parris
Seller Location: Riverside Ca
Sale Type: For Sale

Also, I have a Chefs knife I have not used for a while and that I did not use very much at all.

I bought it new at Sur La Table for around the $300 when it was not on sale :(  

It is a 8" chefs knife, made by Shun, Ken Onion model. I REALLY like the feel of this knife but I like the longer 10" chefs knife and when I bought this one, the 10" was not offered. Like New, in box with packing material Pics if you want them via Email but it is exactly like the one in the link to Sur La Table I am providing Asking $200 delivered OBO

Great grinder and a beautiful knife. If I were in the market for a new chefs knife or grinder (I'll be upgrading in a few months, no doubt), I would be making a couple bids. Shun does have some awesome craftsmanship, and it looks like you took good care of the SJ. And with only 50lbs through, it's just in its prime. Good deal.

Good luck with the sale.

One more of the grinder, just before retirement. The A. C. on the left replaced both SJ grinders. The mini bean hopper seen on the SJs were used on majors and are no longer available.

am i reading these wrong?

Rule 4:  No weekend fixer-upper cottage business posts. If you in any way profit on a regular, irregular, or occasional basis from the buying and selling of anything related to coffee, you cannot post an ad in this forum. This forum is provided as a courtesy to our membership for the times when they decide to upgrade their brewing equipment, and want to sell their existing machines to their fellow members.

We've had a lot of issues in the past with a variety of people on CoffeeGeek in this forum who violate the above rule. People who routinely scour garage sales for uber-cheap machines, clean them up, and resell them. People who made a tamper on their home lathe, liked it, and decided to make a few more and sell here. People who tend to flip machines often (buy from one source, sell here for profit).

Rule 6: ONLY coffee and espresso related products may be listed here in the BST Forum.

Dave, thanks.
I really do not like to sell personal items, I tend to "grow attached" to them but some bills are all coming due at the same time and I really need the cash.
I am serious about the OBO, These have to go, serious offers only please.

These are strictly personal items, I have had them for years and if it were not for bills being due, I would not be selling them at all, this is the first and only time I have ever listed anything for sale here and I am fully aware of the rules, personal items only, that is what this grinder is

I asked permission from the mods about the knife before listing.

While you replied, I had edited my post above you. To restate it.
This is the first and ONLY time I have ever listed anything for sale here since I joined the board about 5 years ago.

EDIT, here is a link to the thread from a year ago where the picks of the grinder came from. At this time I had owned both grinders for several years and the thread was in response to someone asking the difference between the old and the new style grinders.
