Hiya!  I'm looking for a hand grinder for my second work location - at home I have the Capresso Infinity for weekends and afternoons (it wakes my kids up on weekday mornings) and the Hario Mini Mill, and a Spong No 3 at my main work location.  I do a pourover or an inverted Aeropress at work, but would happily do a French Press or even an infuser.  In other words, I need a grinder capable of doing medium and coarse.  I love how fast my Spong is, and would like to get a manual that's as fast (but doesn't cost a fortune on ebay - I bought my Spong for $1 plus shipping), but doesn't give me tons of dust and uneven piece like my Mini Mill.  I'm grinding 20 grams or so at a time - which for medium on the Mini Mill takes like 3 or 4 minutes which is too long for me.  I've read that people like the Peugeots for coarse but they have issues like very small drawers for the grounds.  I can't do a wall-mounted one (or I'd buy an Arcade Crystal without the crystal).  I'd prefer to spend under $50 for a used one on ebay.  Pipe dream?

Don't know how to delete this post, but I found my answer - spend a bit more than $50 and buy a grinder that has been restored, since I'm as handy as a foot.
