The 2014 model has the following features: • Micro-stepped pin hole locking ring. • Laser etched marking scale. • Updated wide mouth blind tumbler. • User adjustable burr alignment. • 1/2inch cylindrical magnet recess in base for dosing mods. • Choice of either Mazzer bead blasted or TiN aftermarket burrs.
We use a 1mm fine thread pitch between the burr mount and the burr collar. A single rotation of the burr mount results in vertical travel of 1mm.With 75 holes in the locking ring, and 25 pins on the collar, this gives the user the ability to change the vertical travel of the burrs in 1/75 or 0.013 millimeter increments.
Returning to a known setting is now repeatable, plus the locking ring is now very secure and cannot drift. Without using it, I don't know how the 1/75th mm actually reacts in practical use, but it sure sounds like minute adjustments.
It would be nice to hear from current owners of the HG One, and their thoughts / observations.

As an owner of the first generation HG-ONE The new model seems really great, the only concern will be the stepped adjustment. I know 2 guys who have got the new model with TiN aftermarket burr, will ask for their opinion about their new toys :)
