Well, Zippity Doo Dah! (Anybody remember Song of the South?)
I finally picked up a used brass Zass for a decent price.
I have two wooden Zasses, but have never used one of these. If I remember
right, it is best used for fine grinding, esp. Turkish. I hope I can get a
grind out of it that is right for a Hario table top vacuum pot, but have my
Skerton dedicated for that now.
Does anybody have one of these and tips on using one of these?http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item%0901734858&ssPageName­ME:B:EOIBSA:US:1123Homeroast mailing list

Great for camping and travelling. Takes very little space. Can grind very
fine . Drawback is it takes a lot of work. Not a grinder to use every day.
You will quickly tire of it and using it if you try using it too much. Looks
nice shinned with some Brasso on a display shelf.

Easy enough to adjust for coarser grinding.

I second that! I got one for travel and began keeping it at work for making  
a French press pot in the afternoons. It got old really quickly. I don't  
know which arm got more tired, the one holding the grinder or the one  
turning the crank.
32 grams of beans just barely fit in the hopper, though there's plenty of  
room for the grounds.

Mine is on the shelf as we speak. As to the arm work out. I have heard of a
cordless drill mod. ;^)
Haven't tried it yet.

8) From: John Nanci
I'd echo what Mike says about it not holding the handle inside for 
traveling, but aside from that I love mine.  Use it all the time for 
camping and can't say that I tire of it at all.  But I hand grind all 
my coffee anyway.  Tips? Nope - pretty straight forward.

Zippity Doo Dah (again)! Got the Brass Zass today, except it turned out to
be a Copper Zass and, I believe, unused. There was no sign of the burrs ever
being used. Does anybody know when they stopped making them copper and
started making them brass? It is pretty cool looking and will make a nice
addition to my Hario table top vacuum pot. I didn't find the grind time much
different than my wood box Zasses.

11) From: Edward Bourgeois
I have a very similar vintage 8" Dienes in chrome. It was the new
model post-war and stayed the same for many years.  I'd guess your
model zass is the same design vintage. Surprisingly the burrs in my
Dienes are rather aggressive and won't do a fine turkish grind. But
with the burrs +/- just touching (in the way hand mills do) it
produces a grind that my Olympia Cremina lever espresso machine just
loves. Crema that lasts. The best of all of my grinders.
enjoy,
Ed
