Not Les here (duh), but know it's not a typo. Les scored big time at a
thrift shop. It can happen! (personally I paid $167 for my Super Jolly and
still a good deal) And of course Les paid about as much or more for new
burrs to bring it up to quality grinding for the rest of his life:-)

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

I guess that answers my question ...
Thrift stores, flea markets, etc ... just not many of them left around here
since the hurricane.  I guess I could check pawn shops, but they are more
likely to know what it is an how much to charge.
Seriously though ... any tips on bargain hunting like that would be
welcome.  I rather enjoy finding things, tinkering with them and breathing
life back into them.

It was an amazing find at the Salvation Army.  I do keep my eyes out
for the group.  I have bought and passed on a Mazzar Super Jolly for
sightly over $100.00.  My new burrs cost me over twice what the
machine cost.  However now I know where they are in the number of
pounds ground, and I also know my other burrs still had a lot of life
in them.  I don't think I will need to worry about grinder upgrade
anymore.  I am planning a few minor modifications however!  I picked
up a couple of ideas at the espresso jam, stay tuned!
