Hi,
For sale is my Wega rebadged Compak K-6. Purchased used in 2009. Asking $325 plus shipping.

Hard to tell from the pics but the chrome is nice shiney no scratches, paint very good. There is a tab broken off of the adjustment ring. The rings are available but it never bothered me, I just grab the whole ring and turn anyway.

Installed new burrs when I got it, really just nicely broken in- should have a few good years of home use left. I took the ones that came off to EPNW for comparison, they said they actually looked pretty good- I bought new anyway. Will include the old set.

The finger guard/hopper switch has been removed and bypassed. I would reinstall on buyers request. There is no hopper- wasn't tucked away well enough and a two year old thought it looked like a good toy to play with- broke it. I will include the baster bulb I used to pop down a couple times and clear most of the grinds from the chute.

Has the tape mod on the doser vanes. I would recommend redoing with the newer style stiff something tucked up into the dosing star.

Also selling one of my Virtuosos. First one is old style purchased as a refurb. 5 yrs ago. Still going strong, looks very good 8-9 out of ten. $90 plus shipping. Second has the Presico burr and gearset upgrade also very nice, 8 out of ten. $150 plus shipping. Will sell the first one that goes and keep the other.

Paypal preferred.

One of the Virtuoso, again hard to tell from the pic but it is in VERY nice shape. Can't read Virtuoso on the front in the pic but it is not worn at all, I guess it's the lighting/reflections. Gaining a new respect for photographers :P

Virtuoso sold.

K-6 is an excellent grinder! 64 mm flat burrs, doser doesn't throw to the right like the Mazzers. No WDT required! Upgrading to a Mahlkonig K-30.

I have one and have modified it to be doserless ($14 mod that I'll do a write up on sometimes) and the grind is actually better than I had previously realized. I toy with the idea of selling mine all the time but havn't found a worthy opponent that would make that big of a step up.

GLWS it's a great unit
