Zassenhaus Mokka Manual Coffee Grinder

Work for your coffee…

I recently picked up a vintage (1950 – 1960) Zassenhaus ‘Mokka’ coffee grinder on for a snip of the usual going rate. I could see it was a bit battered from the photo, the metal was heavily tarnished and the hardwood was well worn for years of use but it was still in one piece, how bad could it be?


MYOG Camera Tripod Leg Wrap

(Make Your Own Gear) Tripod leg wraps, custom and simple. Cheaper than the £35 neoprene ones in the shop.

I didn’t take any ‘step by step’ photos but its very straightforward if you know what your working with.

I recently decided to ditch the tripod bag and use a much more comfortable strap. The leg wraps make it much nicer to handle. Im using a Hanhel Triad 30 which is small and light (and cheap!) so it didn’t take much foam or wrap, I think the upper leg sections are only 30cm in length. Anyway, onto the detail…
