Just a heads up that your price range might be a little tough for a MP considering that's nearly 50% off MSRP. Its not impossible, but may take a VERY long time to find a MP for that cheap....maybe one of first generation AVs could be had for less than $4k, but not an MP. Good luck either way, they are a great machine.

That was a 'unicorn' sale....next deal like that will be years from now. Who ever bought that got a once in a decade deal. If someone finds another deal like that I'll stand corrected... Wow, what a dirt cheap price for the pair.

It definitely was a 'unicorn' deal.  The Robur, the GS3, the whole shebang.  If I didn't have a K10, that Robur would have been mine without blinking an eye...  incredible prices.

Hello Craig:

Just to clarify... that LM and the Robour E that was sole was mine.  The Robour was sold but the deal actually fell through on the GS3.  I am now selling to an outside retailer for more then the 3500 I was asking here.  I do think that 3500 is a very cheap price and is something you wouldn't likely ever see again, especially for a GS3 that was only 3 months old and in excellnt condition!  

I think a more reasonable offer would be 3800.  They appear to be selling fro between 38-40 online.   Looking back at the whole thing I know my prices were crazy.  I probably should have stepped back and really thought about my pricing a bit mroe befire leaping in.  Due to my pending move in October I was anxious, too anxious to free up some much needed cash.  

Craig:
If you ever get the chance to own one of these beautiful machines GO FOR IT!  That alos applies to the Robour E.  It was the best gear ever to grace my bench.

I don't fully understand all this negative talk about the Robour.  Hands down . . . if I were to ever purchase another grinder I would buy the Robour E again.  Best grinder I have ever used.  This business about grind retention is carried way too far.  Even the first shot of the day from this grinder always tasted excellent to me.  I never tossed out any of my first shots..... they went straight down my throat as fast as I could deliver them!

By the way guys:
I still have some items left for sale if anyone is interested.  I will ship too.

AVAILABLE:
6 Sorronto Brown Nova Point espresso cups
6 Sorronto Brown Nova Point cap cups (these cups are thick and heavy and really hold the heat)
1 pack of 2 Bodum double walled thermo-glasses
1 nock box
1 tamp map
1 16oz hands free bell pitcher (still in box)
1 20oz pitcher (still in box)
1 18g VST basket
1 20g VST basket
1 17g Strad basket (this is really an 18 or 19g basket because you can updose on these.  I find the VST's are NOT as forgiving in terms of up-dosing).  

All of this is up for sale.  You pay the shipping.  You can buy as a package or seperately.  

Any interest?

Rob

SPITZ:

Have you roasted yet?

Please let me know how things turn out.  I saw you post on modding out the HotTop.  It all sounded really exciting.

That price ($3,500) wasn't for the pair Erik, for the GS3 only. The Robur sold separately.
