I'm conflicted between the Baratza Sette 30 AP and the Eureka Mignon Manuale. Can anyone offer any advice against these two grinders?

Kinda depends on your machine and how precise you need your grind size to be. I believe the Mignon will give you finer control for espresso grind size, and Eureka grinders tend to be built like tanks and last you for years. I'm a fan of the Sette for its speed, but the 30 will feel inadequate if you have non-pressurised baskets. Hope this helps.

Sette 30 AP is more for drip/filter if I'm not mistaken. From review, Eureka Mignon is built like a tank but its not without its cons, static but this is not an issue for most.

i have the Mignon Manuale, it has anti clump feature so grinds are fluffy. very heavy and solid machine
no screens or anything fancy, just a basic grinder with portafilter actuation

The grind adjustment is stepless. A full 'mark' is a substantial change. For me, about 10% of a mark is 5 seconds difference in espresso extraction, more or less.

I'm not that careful in puck preparation, so perhaps the actual change is less than 5s if everything else held equal. I just try to target 45s to 55s including 15s preinfusion on the Flair. The manual pressure/pull allows some adjustment in timing as well.

Please elaborate on 'grinds crumbs'.
