I've got one of these and it works ok but the low quality pot metal cap broke in two. HF doesn't have any parts for these unfortunately. Are these a common size (as in it'd be possible to order a new cap) or will there not likely be another 'generic' cap that will fit. I'd hate to have to buy another since it's just the cap that it needs. The other question... before the cap broke, I wanted a courser plate than is provided with the kit. Is there a place that sells such a thing? These plates have 2 dog ears on them unlike most standard grinder plates. I'd guess these Made In China grinders are similar one to the next. So maybe HF isn't the only one with the same unit.
