Topic: Pede Turkish, was Re: +FP Travel (7 msgs / 107 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
I am idly keeping my eye on grinders on eBay. I may or may not buy
another. Occasionally what appears to be a Pede model Turkish appears.
Haven't seen much about Pede grinders, but what I've seen on this list
has been positive. Anyone know anything about the Pede Turkish models?

Hold out for a Zass turkish. I just got one and wow. First thing I did was
test it with my espresso machine.
The grind was fine enough. The shot was good.

Probably good advice, Joe.
Actually, I don't know why I am even looking at them. Truthfully, the
last thing I need is another hand grinder. I have a Zass grain mill,
Zass 169DG, a standard Trossers, a knee Trosser, and a Giant Trosser.
Just have the fever, I guess.

The Zass fever.. I know it well. I got one on ebay for a birthday gift for
my daughter. I then won one for myself. Then under the conception that I
want to display some in our retail coffee roasting / wine shop I won 3 more
from the same seller. Then I went on to win her very nice Zass turkish. If
you get a chance look ( oh I hate to tempt you )
at this German seller on ebay. albertkaroline Her name is Inge. Very nice
lady. I have made her very happy I'm sure.
She is selling off her family collection. Her collection is in emaculate
condition. Several steps above most Zass sellers. The French are catching on
now to and selling off these old grinders. The Europeans have discovered a
World gold mine with all there old grinders especially here in the US.
This is a link to one of here current grinders on ebay.http://cgi.ebay.com/Coffee-grinder-Zassenhaus-side-crank-mill-about-1930_W0QQitemZ180164914321QQihZ008QQcategoryZ13930QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItemBrian, this is the second one of these she has listed and sold. I watched
and wanted the first one sooooo bad.
A very rare unit. It went for close to 350.00 She has taken great care of
these over the years.
Out of my league on that one.
Watch out. I'm hooked bad.
I'm only looking now till our store gets opened.

Coincidentally, I was following several of this woman's mills a couple
weeks ago. Also, a couple other mills on German eBay. The one I lusted
after most lustily was a bakelite mill. Again, I have a few mills I
haven't even used, including the Giant Trosser, so I have been able to
resist pulling the trigger on any more mills.

Brian, I bought a PeDe Grinder in a thrift store for $18 about 5 years ago.
It is not a Turkish grinder but a Zass 169 equivalent and  I love it.  It
produces a way more consistent grind than my brothers Zass.  His grinder was
purchased just before the Zass grinders disappeared from the market a few
years ago. (?) Was it that long?  Since Zass had its quality issues I have
lost some trust in their product.  Jared

Thanks, Jared, good to get a first hand report. Someone else on the
list has reported having several (3, it seems like) hand grinders, and
saying that the Pede was the best of the lot.
