I'm interested in the Super Jolly. I know you wrote that the burrs are in great shape and that it's been well cared for, but I have a few specific questions. Are there any mechanical glitches or aesthetic wear and tear? You wrote that it's an older machine. Do you know how old it is? How many owners total? Have you replaced the burrs since you bought it? Do you know when or if the burrs were replaced? If I were to purchase it, how do you accept payment?
Any answers and additional info you can give would be appreciated. I look forward to hearing back from you.

I checked the serial number. According to some google searches I did the first two numbers are the year, so if correct this is a model from 1995.
No mechanical glitches.
Aesthetically it looks like a used machine. The finish is not shiny. I don't see any dents. One small area on the tray is missing paint. A few missing paint chips on top. I'm sure it could be brightened up with some elbow grease and minor touch ups.
I don't know when the burrs were last replaced. I haven't changed them. I don't know how many owners, but there has been at least two.
I've used it to make espresso and aero press coffee. I've actually had it in a second home for the past two years, so lightly used since I've had it. Excellent grind on both the espresso and aero press.
A check or money order is fine, if you can wait for it to clear. I would rather not use PayPal because of the cost, but if that helps seal the deal I'm all for it.
