samap f50 versus blendtec grain mills

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post. I have the opportunity to purchase a used Samap F50 stone mill. From what I have seen on the internet they go for between $650 and $800 US. I am in Canada and can get one close by for $215 CAN. Here in Canada the best price I have found for the Blendtec mill is $289 with free shipping (that would be a brand new unit). What would you guys suggest? My wife likes the size of the Blendtec as we don't have a lot of storage space. From what I have seen on the net, the Blendtec will do everything that we would want. The Samap F50 is a stone mill, but is supposed to be very well built and long lasting. I am not sure what I should do. We are currently using a hand mill (Back to Basics 555 model). It works good, but we are looking for an electric one now.

Thank you in advance for the advice.

My husband and I are also looking at the Blendtec and were wondering the reviews of the experienced. Hopefully, someone will see this; the posts seem to go whizzing by now that there is so much traffic.
