I just made a deal with someone selling a Mazzer Luigi Super Jolly grinder with timer that was used by a small coffee shop at a school for $350.  I was told that the machine has only been used for a few years and that it has been maintained.

Before I pay they want me to inspect it, but I am a novice!  This will be my very first grinder.  I am also purchasing a used mini la spaziale to go with it.  Any comments?  What to look for?  Does this sound like a good deal?

Ah, I see that you haven't forgotten the grinder! (See my response in your other thread)

Assuming that it works well, this is a good deal. Make sure it runs, of course. Look to be sure the burrs are turning without any wobble. Make sure the adjustment is smooth, turns well.

I am sure others will add more. You will certainly want to get new burrs no matter how the old ones look.

Monica, thanks for the post edit!
Scott dispensed good advice, and I 2nd the new burr set. I'd recommend the "Duranium" purchased from a reputable vendor.
The OEM Mazzer burr set are also good.

Thank you for this info.  Would you say that $350 is a good price to pay for a used Mazzer Jolly or should I negotiate further?

Thats a fair price, as long as it's in good shape, isn't terribly dinged up, and they don't charge you more than about $40 to ship, including $500 insurance.
Do replace the burrs regardless of what they say.

Subject: Re: Used Mazzer Luigi Super Jolly vs. Compak K3 Touch Doserless Grinder New $450
 

So I have not picked up the Mazzer yet.  I have until tomorrow to decide, but I am thinking a used mazzer super jolly w/doser-timer for $350 versus a new Compak K3 Touch Doserless Grinder from Chris Coffee for $450.  

Which one???  

I am thinking of using it with either the Quick Mill Silvano or Oscar Simonelli, but haven't decided this yet as well.  Thoughts?

I was going to start a new thread almost identical to this one, but in my case it's someone local offering me one for $120. I've never worked with a commercial grinder before and am wondering if it's worth it for me to have an additional grinder aside from my Vario-W.

I would go with the Super Jolly and the Silvano. Also, call Chris' and see if they have any deals for the Silvano plus a grinder.
