Bottom Line: Update review after 12 years.  Grinder still works and produces a credible espresso grind!
Positive Product Points

Surprisingly durable grinder, given its plastic construction.  This one was built in the late 1990s - the newer Trespade models might not be up to the same standard.  Produces a completely usable espresso grind comparable or better than commercial flat burr grinders in the 50-60mm range.

Negative Product Points

Plastic, plastic, plastic.  Don't know if the new ones are as good as the old ones were.

Detailed Commentary

I originally reviewed this grinder in 2001, after owning it for six months.  At that time, it was an almost-new purchase from ebay.

I have now used the grinder on and off for 12 years.  It was in storage for about half that time, but it has had several years of daily use.  I expected it to break down years ago, but it still functions and produces an acceptable grind.  One new burr set, but that is the only service it has had.  

I am quite impressed by the PGC/Trespade grinders.  I also have commercial flat burr and conical grinders, and the Trespade produces a credible grind when compared to grinders with much more impressive hardware.
