Boy GK, that's a seriously smart-looking unit - enough to make me think about replacing my ageing Anfim!

Thanks for that KeekKopi.

I am considering a grinder upgrade, not for a while yet though, and that is one of the machines I was looking at.

Very nice pictures!  Could you get a click-clack lid to fit and push the grinds out like Rocky?  I love my modded Rocky but without the mods its a bit unrefined.

haven't thought of using the click clack but thanks for refreshing my memory banks, ill check the diameter of the opening of the hopper but I might struggle as my hopper doesnt have a straight edge like the rocky and starts to taper inwards towards the chute of the grinder.

I always recommend kick sacks or kick balls or happy sacks
One can easily make one

You place a ball on top of the beans, it applies a small amount of weight to push the beans down into the throat of the grinder, and prevents jumping

You can make one to try simply with a balloon filled to the right level with rice and tie the end ;)

I have the ROK hand grinder and I love it.The conical burr is well seated with quality bushings with no "wobble" whatsoever.  The gearing is good and it appears to be an instrument that will last.  The learning process was challenging when I attempted to adjust the grind.  When turning the adjustment wheel, it appeared to be stuck and then breaking free.  The conical bur would then drop down.  After dismantling which is quite easy, I found that the drive shaft that went through the burr, needed a bit of lubricant.  I dabbed a small bit of Super Lube onto the shaft, ensuring that no lubricant could get onto the burr and it performs nicely.  I found that I had to continue this procedure after about a month or so (Used every day).  Don't know if this problem is isolated to my machine or not but I highly recommend this grinder.
