Topic: Sorry to bring up the ole Grind again:) (11 msgs / 151 lines)
1) From: Diablo
I'm going to start roasting batches for work.  I worked out a little deal.  The
only problem will be premeasuring and grinding for the work brewer.  I don't
mind a little work.  I'll get a kick from seeing all the smiley faces and
ensueing caffeine rushes:)
I was looking at a Ditting.  I wanted something I could use for quite some time
and not worry too much about longevity and the like.  I may have to grind up to
4-5 pounds at a time so that is why I was looking at something pretty much
commercial grade.  
Any input from the list is appreciated.  Was just wondering what you may
recomend or if there are inherent problems with a Ditting that I would
appreciate knowing.

get a jolly,  the thing will grind limbs off if you are not careful and 
do it quickly too.
It's a great grinder and has the horsepower for the abuse one might 
throw its way.

If you're just looking for something cheap and industrial (read: Not
espresso), then you can always pick up the grocery store Bunns on eBay
for cheap.  I've seen them go for less than a hundred bucks quite

Thanks, but I'm gonna need to get one this weekend so I think ebay won't work.

Thought I was missing something:)  The reply seemed a bit to imply something
taken for granted.  Still trying to do research on bigger grinders.

The ditting is fine grinder but a bit pricy.
Bunn makes a nice commerical grinder that will not take you broke.http://snipurl.com/vcz6RK

Sorry bro, I thought I did send out a thanks to all.  My bad.  Well, if I get
that grinder I might enjoy it:)  Still not cheap but I think it is worth it in
the long run of things.  Thanks to all again.
