Topic: Mint Wall Model Zass (5 msgs / 94 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
Barry,
I like the new post in the pictures gallery of you Mint Wall Model.
I've always wondered how the wall units grind... have you tried this
one out? From the pictures it seems the wall units may have smaller
grinder mechanisms, and I was wondering if they might grind more
finely, more consistently, etc.
In case anyone wants to take a look and doesn't know the url, here it is:http://www.sweetmariascoffee.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemIdx20Thanks,
Brian

Actually, the wall grinders are the best from a collectors angle and
use  angle. They are no longer manufactured so they have to go up in
price as time goes on. The new one that is pictured cost me 49 on
e-bay. They sold for 75 new. If it came from a home in America there
is a good chance it was never used and was just used as a kitchen
decoration. That is the case with this new one. It has never been used
to grind anything. Now as to grinding abilities. I find them far
superior to the small ones. When they are firmly fastened to the wall
they remain stable during the grind. In addition the handle is much
longer and delivers more torque.They grind more beans faster , more
uniform and with less effort than the box mills. Plus buying a wall
unit you have better chance of not getting one of those late model
defectives that were around a couple of years ago.

Good thinking, Barry. I like my Zass grain mill for several of the
reasons you mention regarding wall-mounted. I like the look of them
and have thinking of doing some bidding but haven't yet, but I think
I'll ramp up my interest a notch or two and see what happens.

I just finished refurbishing a Pe De Peter Dienes wall grinder
(recently posted on the SM image site) and was quite impressed with
it's build. Have not had a chance to grind much for shots yet but with
just a few test grinds, I like it.

Good to know, Ed. I think PeDe are a bit less known than Zass and may
go for a bit less $ on eBay.
