Posted Mon Jun 16, 2014, 12:10am Subject: Re: Has anyone ever made their own espresso grinder??
There are several homemade grinders out there. Probably more of them are hand grinders than motor driven, but there are several of both.
I have made one driven by a cordless drill using old 68mm burrs. It works quite well, although not as good as my K10 right now. Eventually I plan to build another grinder, and this time it will be driven by a geared AC motor - I hope anyway...
My Kludge-I grinder is based on old 68mm conical burrs and mounted in plastic plumbing parts off the shelf at Home Depot. No need for a lathe! It's not pretty, but it grinds far better than my Baratza Vario did. Turn it with a cordless driver, and hold the grinder body with a jar lid turning strap! Click Here (www.home-barista.com)
Eventually I do plan on making a powered grinder that's easier to use, adjust and control. Currently I have a K10 on the bench, so I'm in less of a hurry to make that grinder than before. LOL
