Topic: I am Super Jolly today! (5 msgs / 133 lines)
1) From: Bonnie Polkinghorn
With great anticipation, I'll pick up my used Super Jolly on Wednesday
afternoon.  I am so looking forward to using this wonderful grinder.
My current grinder is a Solis Maestro, I bought it before I found this group
or home roasting or Sweet Maria's.
My main brewer is the vacuum brewer, the Yama, and also my French Press.
In order to get a nice grind, I need about 56 g of ground coffee for my
Yama, I grind 70 g.  Then, I use a fine kitchen strainer and sift out the
fines, which always comes out to 14 g.  After 2 days, I have 28 g of fines
and I use my French Press and 16 oz of water and brew for 1 minute and use
that as my morning commuter cup.
It works, but it's a huge hassle, and takes a lot of extra time.  My in-laws
think I'm nuts.  Merry Christmas to them, it's going to be their new
grinder, replacing their whirly blade.
I found this grinder for sale on Craigslist here for $300.  My local Kaiser
Medical Center coffee cart is selling his spot and the new owners have their
own equipment, so he is selling his stuff, including his 2 Super Jolly's.  I
was so happy to find out it was this fine establishment, I have always
enjoyed their coffee.  I spend a lot of time at Kaiser and have enjoyed
their espresso drinks very much.   With permission from our hosts, if you
email me offline and off list, if you are interested in the other one,
please let me know and I can put you in contact with the seller.  We are up
here in Santa Rosa, CA, so if you are planning a trip up this way, let me
know.  We are one hour north of San Francisco.
Ho Ho Ho,
Jumping for joy,
Bonnie P.

Bonnie,
I also have an SJ grinder. It has marks for the different grinds I use for
different brewing methods. Hope you enjoy yours!
New burrs might be a good idea if this grinder has been in a commercial
setup.
cheers,
Scott

Congratulations. Could be the last grinder you'll ever buy for any grinding
duty. 
Agree check the burrs and replace if not sharp. Unscrew the upper burr
carrier counter-clockwise (going ever coarser grind wise) until it can lift
straight up and off. Carefully run a finger along the burr cutting edge. If
it feels like it's likely to cut you with slight pressure burrs are good to
go. If not replace 'em. If you replace 'em they'll be good to go for 300# or
so.

How slow am I? I just noted that the SJ has a right hand threaded adjusting
nut.
The Major is definitely left hand threaded. (Turns clockwise to remove)
That's odd. 99.999% sure. Maybe it changed overnight...

99.999% sure you got it right RayO:-)
Actually how slow or asleep was I when I post that!!!!  SJ goes clockwise
for coarser and to remove carrier just like Major. Only have 3 SJ's, jeeze.
(and 3 Majors)
