The Turin SD40 V2 is a single dose grinder that uses bellows and a tilted base to reduce retention. It has 40mm stainless steel conical burrs and a sturdy aluminum body. Version 2 is very similar to version 1, but has improved burrs and a adjustment dial sticker that has been updated.
Most grinders in the price range of this grinder are made with plastic, smaller burrs, ceramic burrs and are not very well built and have high retention. This grinder is well built with mostly metal construction and low retention. We are excited to be the exclusive US importer for this product and we think it will do very well when compared to other grinders in it’s price range. It compares well against the Breville Smart grinder, Ascaso grinders, Baratza grinders, Fellow grinders, and blade grinders. In terms of noise level it is quieter than a lot of the grinders in it's price range.

Being completely new to making espresso, I really don't have much to compare this grinder to. However, the ease of use and the quality of the build have been very impressive so far. The Turin SD40 gives a consistent grind and has provided me exactly what I was looking for. Absolutely no regrets with this purchase.
Does V2 resolve the clunky increment adjustments without the need to Mod the grinder?
I am really impressed with this grinder. Quiet and simple to use. Lights roasts are no problem. Using mostly for drip but it’s a quick adjustment to go between. Hard to believe it’s that good for the price.
Gets so messy everytime I use it, wish there wasn’t so much static
Near zero retention on this grinder. I put 18.1g in and I get 18.1g out. The built-in bellow works like a charm. This machine took my espresso experience to the next level. Highly recommended! Budget friendly entry price for a great grinder.
