  1. There are indeed flats on the nut so it's fairly easy to get an adjustable spanner on it
  2. I used an adjustable spanner. The thing to remember is that the threads on the nut are reversed. This means that to loosen the nut you wind clockwise. To tighten the nut you wind anti-clockwise.
  3. Hi there. My E37s is a 2017 unit so it came with the "fixed" anti-static flapper. When modding my E37s I left this in as I have never had much issue with retention (using RDT), particularly with bellows. Not sure what you mean by where is the safety nut? Do you mean where is it installed? If so it replaces the little domed nut you see when you look down on the burrs after removing the hopper. Its visible in my pics at the top of this thread. Its wider than the original and helps manage the flow of beans. I got mine from espresso Solutions.
  4. Apologies if resurrecting this old thread is not appropriate, but having recently been tempted by the Weber Key I have been trying to convince myself one way or another whether I would either a) see a benefit from having a 'big conical' over my SSP'd Ceado E37s and b) whether there would be a difference at all. This thread was really useful, and I think it has helped me come to the conclusion that there will likely be a textural difference to espresso produced with a big conical vs the 83mm flat SSP's, but taste will be subjective and dependent primarily on roast level. What I found really interesting from researching the 'big conical' vs 'big flat' question was how little development there has been in conical burrs vs big flats. It seems that a lot of high-end conical grinders all source from Mazzer (usually 71mm or 83mm Roburs) eg Versalab, Monolith MC4 and Weber for HG-1,HG-2, KEY. Have Mazzer perfected the conical burr with the Robur design, or is there just no market for conical innovation? Conversely, flat burrs seem to be having a real purple patch with SSP, Monolith and Weber all developing their own unique designs that seem to be pushing boundaries.
  5. If not single dosing, the best thing one can do is put the minimum amount of beans in the hopper that still allow for a consistent grind. I notice that you have what looks like a Compaq grinder. There is a wonderful mini hopper with a bean weight (which mimics having a full hopper of beans weighing down on the burrs for a consistent grind) in the classifieds section that may suit your needs 😉
  6. When I bought my R58, the manual recommended an in-line filter such as the Everpure OCS-2. I've used this filter since plumbing in around 5 years ago and have never had issues. The water taste much nicer (no chlorine taste) and I've had no issues with scale buildup. Boilers get inspected once a year and that's been confirmed. Rough analysis of water specs post filter also suggests I was within the recommended region on the alkalinity vs hardness plot.
  7. View Advert EazyTamp 5 star Pro Self-levelleing calibrated tamper 58.4mm EazyTamp 5 star pro tamper for sale. 58.4mm diameter and has recommended specifications for VST/precision baskets. Tamper is considered by many to be the best self-levelleing calibrated tamper around. Comes installed with a 15kg/30lb spring and includes a 10kg/20lb spring and a 7.5kg/15lb spring that can be installed easily if a lighter tamp is preferred. This tamper is basically brand new - used on half a dozen times or so. Selling because I realised I prefer a manual tamp. Tamper itself is easy to use and feels nice in the hand. Handle is made of Australian Ironbark, which to my eye looks like a light walnut. Retails on the website for 193 AUD and shipping was 60 AUD. Today's exchange means to get this tamper to the UK would cost around £140. Shipping expedited as I did still took around 3 weeks due to Brexit and Covid delays. Selling here first for £100 including postage. At this price you will be getting a basically new tamper, discounted and shipped much faster!
