Detailed Commentary

I went to Goodwill with my landlady to drop off some clothing, and wandered back to the appliance section (always in the market for bargains). I found this thing waiting for me, so I figure for 5 bucks, what th' hell? I field-stripped it when I got home and did a priliminary cleaning, and ran some old beans through it. The container had a small part of one of the corners broken, so I had to hold a thumb over it. Still had some grounds escape. The consistency of the grind wasn't what I expected, either...looked like quite a bit of powder when set at the coarsest setting. But, I've only had it for a few hours, so I'll play with it some and see what it's capable of. Maybe I'll do the tweaking thingie like that other guy suggested...

Buying Experience

Goodwill has a return policy of electronic stuff now. How 'bout that? Only 48 hours, but better'n what it was before.
