Topic: Mr Tross? (9 msgs / 176 lines)
1) From: David Johnson
Wandering through Ebay I noticed a "Armin Trosser" grinder. Anyone
familiar with this brand? It is made in Germany. Other than the fact that
it is painted blue, it has a similar shape to a Zass. But then, How many
shapes can a grinder have.
The prices of Zass/Fass grinders seems to be climbing. Petzul got a good
deal. Mainly because I recognized his name and didn't bid against him.
By the way, I use the handle Pyment on eBay.

For those interested - I noticed last night that SM got some more new Zass' in - I ordered the 169 - I tried bidding on a used one on ebay and was outbid in about 5 minutes to more than I was willing to pay for a used one.

I have one(thrift shop). I like it, though I haven't used it in quite a 
while. I would say it compares favorably to my Zass. It's sturdily made and 
the tolerances are pretty tight... I don't think you'll go wrong, if it's 
in decent shape and if it's a lot cheaper than a Zass...
Ciao,

Hi David,
I have not heard of the grinder you mention, but thanks for not
bidding aginst me on the Fass ;)
It looks bigger than my knee mill, and it is my second Zass/fass.
Hopefully I will need no more of them.
BTW, the electric orange juicer does not have enough torque to
actually turn a zass and grind coffee. Almost does though.

Peter,
Did you get a Zass, or even better, a Fass?  I always feel especially
proud to see a Fassenhaus out there...
My first Zass was a Fass, but actually is a Zass - tough on non-users
to read the script on the handle...
OK, just for a sanity check, go to www.ebay.de and search for
Zassenhaus - you will be astonished at the availabilityand prices... 
We're just a long way from Kansas, Toto...

It seems that I have succeeded in driving up the prices of Fass/Zass's all
over ebay. One Fass I bid on is currently up to $36. I guess it is good to
let the big spenders get it out of their systems when I am looking at a
back up to take camping.
That is why I turned to Mr Tross. Anyone got an idea of how the grind is
adgusted on grinders like that? I don't know if it is OK to post a link,
but you can search ebay for Armin Trosser. It seems less than Zass's are
currently going for.

Mine is adjusted by reaching in through the door slot. There is an 
adjusting lever which seems to do a good job of holding the adjustment.
