  • Wega 8.0 / Compak k8 fresh

    Just picked up used Wega grinder for home use, looks like compak K8 fresh.
    Bigger is better right?

    Been looking the web on explosion chart / parts list and manual with not much luck. Would like to order new short hopper current one is bit scratched up and maybe some burrs.


    Next on shopping list is coffee machine.

      I can't help with your queries, but I like seeing the killer grinder next to the appliance coffee machine. It goes to show you know what's most important

          nice one!

          check the absolute count and work out how many kilos it has ground (say 7 -10g/shot), you might be no where near due for replacement. for home use they will probably last a lifetime!

          Try coffeeparts for burrs and hopper, although I havent seen a short hopper on these?

          have you googled re manual? Compak | Professional Coffee Grinders | F8 OD
          if you find something useful post it in the documentation section.

          cheers

              is yours planar or conical? must be a huge change in flavour and consistency over the sunbeam grinder?!

              cheers

                It looks like the same hopper as a Compak F8 A8, etc. I've just bought a short hopper from the USA. Compak Australia sells them for $180 plus shipping

                  Havent seen one before, that short hopper looks nice. Appears to be a steeper cone, is the lid the same diameter?

                  Cheers

                      Spewing i was hoping it would be around 100$. If i dont need new burrs will fork out for new short hopper.
                      Is it cheaper from US? I know shipping from US to Perth is quicker than easter states to Perth lol.

                        yYou could cut your hopper down to the required height and get a lid to suit, or use a jam funnel, if you wanted to save some $.

                        Cheers

                          US$89.95. You need to ship it to a US address otherwise shipping is crazy expensive to Aus.

                            Not with an F series. It's not a conventional hopper.

                              I've got enough room for standard hopper it just not in great state from what missus has mentioned. Ill have look at it tomorrows yay! So if i was getting new one might as well go for smaller hopper. Also been thinking about stripping down the grinder and getting it powder coated and make it look new again. ( left hand side base has a lot of paint chips )
