Excellent point Jim, I totally missed it the first time I read Steve's post!
Funny how we (I) sometimes process mentally what we expect to be there
rather than what is...

Yes, possibly.  But, it depends upon WHICH conical burr grinder is used to compare.  I had a Solis 166.  It was OK, but the burrs were shot after 30 lb. coffee, and I never had a shot out of the Silvia from it that was as good as what I'm getting from the Rocky.  OTOH, 'HV' from alt.coffee has a Demoka MiniMoka grinder.  Basically, it's the Innova conical grinder in a different package.  Aside from spraying coffee everywhere (doserless grinder), the grind it produces is beautiful and it makes a wonderful cup of both coffee AND espresso.
I seriously considered the Innova grinders, but the conical model has a substandard motor, IMHO, and the flat burr grinds too slow.  The Rocky has a lousy doser (well, it's not THAT bad), but I like the click stops for grind as I grind for a lot of things.  The worm drive on the Innova would drive me nuts.  The Rocky has an enormous motor that will never wear out, and new burrs are cheap.  Score 1 for the Rocky.

The documentation accompanying the Super Jolly I got recently indicates 
that the flat burrs will last for about 500 kg of coffee, that's 11 
pounds.  I grind about 2 pounds a month, only myself and wife, maybe three, 
so it should last until...oh...I'm about 90, shot to death by a jealous 
husband. [grin]
That was three pounds a month, not three wives, by the way.
I suppose comparing the large burs in the pro grade grinder is not quite 
fair, but there it is.

Oh my, I meant that 500 kg was 1100 pounds, only 11 pounds, must be early 
still in New England.

Erm...500 kg is a bit more than 11 lbs.  I think you lost a few zeros
here.  You'd have to sell burrs that lasted 11 lbs. by the pallet around
here .
Be well,
