I found a used Gallo D'Oro grinder on CraigsList for $200, and am not able to find much about it around the internet which makes it hard to compare (and is a little concerning, in case something is wrong with it, or goes wrong at some point).
Apparently this was purchased 15 years ago, and used off and on (at home) throughout. The seller estimates about a total of 2 years of usage.
Just trying to figure out if this is a good deal. Does anyone know much about this?

That name does not ring a bell for me. It may with someone else though. A Picture often goes a long way to identifying a grinder. Count on changing the burrs, regardless of how much use the seller guesses it has had.
In real life, my name is Wayne P. Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

I actually stumbled upon another grinder on CraigsList that looked 98% identical, just stickers / coloring was a tiny bit different, and it was clearly labeled Rossi RR45.
Assuming you're right (or if I just go for the other one that is actually a Rossi) -- do any of you know the approximate cost to bring it into full working order (I know burrs... not sure what else could / should wear out and need to be replaced)?
With a $200 list price I imagine I could land this for $130 tops.
