  1. Check with the retailer, to see if they are OK with you trying to free it up using pliers...if they are you have nothing to loose. Just be careful not to scratch the case. The worrying bit is the knob rotating but the shaft not moving....that's not right, and I hope the inside of the knob has not been rounded out.. I can't see deep inside as it's not square on, but it looks like it might be OK. As steam valves should only ever be closed gently and never opened completely...you should be OK....unless of course the valve has a fault. P.S If the shaft moves really easily w
  2. @tompoland Doesn't pull oils/aromatics to the surface They will still age whilst in the freezer, so best freeze them as fresh as possible.

  10. Sorry guys, couldn't resist...😉

  12. @JohanR Thaty's because of the larger breaker zone, packs the burrs better...You might find the breaker zone in the replacement burrs is at a steeper angle as well. There have been some strange goings on in the cut of some flat burrs in Italy, as manufacturers try to achieve something different with their grinders.
  13. It looked a lot better, the dead spot was probably a minor distribution/tamp issue. What pressure is the machine running?
