I bought this new from Sovrana. It has gotten very light use, maybe 100 lbs. in all (rated at 1100-1700 lbs). PLUS it comes with a set of new burrs as well. The current model is selling for $275. This one is the same internally but has the black all-metal body. Not eye-candy, but a very solid, commercial-grade grinder. 60mm flat burrs, a 1lb-capacity hopper with a sliding gate. This grinder is doserless but instead has an adjustable electronic timer-- each push of the red button runs the grinder for x seconds.

The grinder is in excellent mechanical condidion. Only issues are that I've misplaced the finger guard (I foound it interfered with the beans sliding into the burrs), and a hairline crack on the hopper (but the hopper is still totally usable).

I'm in Northern Virginia-- I'd prefer to sell it to someone local, but will ship it at cost anywhere in the US.

With the OP's permission (pending...LOL) I'll just say that in years past this was (and is) a very solid grinder, maybe not as fancy as others in it's class, but with proper burrs does a fine job.
This comment is aimed especially at new members not familiar with this grinder.

Thanks for the endorsement Rob!
I've certainly enjoyed this grinder and gotten an occasional "God shot" using it.
