canuckcoffeeguy - no worries, just like I couldn't remember who made the mod, it very likely could have been I was an idiot and either mis-read the post or just outright bought the wrong thing. I got it working, though, so at the very least you can say that your post inspired me to do the mod to begin with! :-D

DeanOK - I changed the offset to -10. The only reason why is the CC1 had a harder time keeping 202 deg F with -12. I think I might play with the PID settings in the future as it seems whoever came up with the original parameters was more afraid of overshooting the set temp than taking too long to get there. It reaches 201 quite easily, so I know it's not a boiler power issue.

CMIN - I actually use a Ryobi cordless drill on my Hario Mini quite often! I grind really slowly compared to the drill's top speed. Once as an experiment I ran the drill quite fast to see how it would affect the shot - the result was as if I ground the beans far too fine as it was a very slow extraction. Slowing it down again without adjusting the burr gap returned the expected outstanding results.

Oh, DeanOK, was that the Vario-W that you have? I am now strongly considering (as in I'm about to order) a Vario-W refurb as it's half the cost of an HG One and much faster. Either that or a new Preciso+Esatto (which I can get from Amazon and do cheap 1-day shipping). I wonder if directly grinding into the PF is even worthwhile.

edit - Well, can't say that I'm wishy-washy once I've made up my mind. I just ordered a Vario-W from Amazon - they had a "used" model for $410.
