Can anyone identify this model?

We have it in our commercial roastery, but it seems to be a bit of a Frankenstein - no serial numbers or brand names. We were wondering if any of you fine people would recognise its shape or build? The reason is that we require a part - which would obviously be easier to order if we knew who made parts for it!

Thanks in advance for any inspired answers!

HI,
UH, it is going to take someone better than I to ID those parts. To me, it looks like something that was cobbled together from random parts but I could be way off base there and just be ignorant of that particular grinder.

What parts are you needing?

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

If it's the burrs - there might be factory stamping marks on the back of the burrs.

If not, measure burr thickness, inner and outer diameters, and the number (and maybe size) of holes - that should help narrow it down.

If it's bearings - same there - or just measure the dimensions and order from just about any commercial hardware supplier - McMaster has LOTS: http://www.mcmaster.com/#bearings/=nnsres

Just a few thoughts to help you out.
