    Versalab Grinders... thoughts and opinions

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Picked up a trio of Versalab grinders recently and am thus far impressed with their ability to dial in the grind precisely with minimal waste and retention. Am seriously considering a change to a timing drive belt though, anyone tried this yet?

    Have you seen the belts that are used on a lot of bread-makers these days?

    They mostly use toothed belts (Gilmer Belts) too and last for a very long time. Maybe worth considering if you can find one the correct size...

    Crikey! Three of them? Was it from a cafe closing down? There's a lot of discussion of these grinders on home barista including mods to them.

    Are you going to sell a couple of them?

    Not at this stage. I figured I'd need a back up and maybe a back up for the back up just in case ��
