Detailed Commentary

I bought my Solis 166 from Kyle at Baratza, as a refurb.  It was in mint condition, and came with full warranty and new burrs.  I use it daily to grind for my Silvia and my Yama vac pot.  It works wonderfully for both.  The Silvia requires that I use the second or third from finest position, but nevertheless, it works well.  I've had NO static problems with it, but our house is well humidified in the winter.
