    [Perth] Compak A8 Doserless 83mm Flat Burr grinder

    Selling my Compak A8 grinder.

    Done just over 10,000 single shots which at 8 to 10 grams per single is about 80-100kg (which is nothing really for a grinder like this). I have recently changed the burrs to the newer revised version which gives a faster grind. Original burrs included in sale.

    This is a flat burr grinder with 83mm diameter burrs. Built like a tank and almost as heavy.

    I have used this for single dosing which works well as you can easily sweep out the grind throat through the liftable "bonnet".

    Worm drive grind adjustment with digital numeric display of grind fineness makes it easy to return to any point.

    Grinder is in great condition with two marks on the left/rear as per photos.

    Looking for around $675.

    Cheers

    I also have one of these. Great grinder at this price and works well for single dosing. Recommended.

    The pic below shows the total single shot count and the time it started (like an odo on a car).

    He's in a small village on the sparsely populated west coast of australia. The locals know it as Perth. Nice place to visit but i wouldnt want to live there, no daylight savings would you believe?

    $600 for a grinder that does a triple in 5 seconds sounds like a bargain to me

    Yes I'm in Perth, love the (relative) lack of traffic, wish we had daylight savings...

    There is love. ❤️ Just timing not quite right.

    Still very tempting for work related activities and having two grinders... but will need to wait for about 2 months before that requirement comes to pass. Sorry.

    Bumperoo. Is it the sideways pics that are putting people off? :-) At least it requires less vertical clearance this way....

    Cheers
