Hi,

I just purchased this grinder at a bargain price on eBay, I think it's a macap or a rebranded macap of some description, but canít tell the model. Unfortunately I only have one, fairly shoddy, picture.  Looks like it needs a good clean, too.

Many Thanks

yeah, looks similar to my black M4, but larger....Almost assuredly a Macap.  Nice score!  A good cleaning, and possibly new burrs, and you should be set for a long time.
