    Default Ceado E37s A.R.S.E Mod

    I donít know why I didnít think to search google for a picture of the mythos clump crusher - given VA have probably trialed one or two more designs than us....replicating theirs seems a sensible starting point!

    Hereís the magical Mythos CC:


    Looks like we have stumbled upon an almost identical design!

    They also have an enhanced gap between teeth, but one fewer teeth. Looks like I need to drink some more beer to try making another - this coffee malarkey is hard work...

    I cannot understand how Ceado could release the grinder with the stupid useless SSC, revise it - and still it doesn't work.

    Especially when a better solution can be made by an amateur, by hand, with a used beer can!!

    I recon retention is up with this, but the useability is improved moreso.

    Retention is definitely down over the SCC, well at least in my experience anyway...

    Okay, perhaps it was lower when I tried the fully open position AKA 'coffee explosion mode'.

    Okay, Iíd agree that.

    For the first year or so I have been working in what shall henceforth be referred to as ďCEMĒ, the be SCC does complicate dose to dose precision.

    The ARSE gives more retention than CEM, but I think itís workable.

    The difficulty I have found is in making tiny adjustments between shots to finesse the grind size. CEM does have he benefit of any adjustment making a meaningful change to the next shot.

    In ARSE mode, I have found you need to make an adjustment as trust it will be right - it is easy to adjust a little, shot not right, adjust some more, overshoot the target as the first adjustment hadnít taken full effect yet.

    My next potential ARSE I am cooking up is the same design at the Mythos above, but with a wider gap between the teeth.

    Iím wondering if it might reduce retention

    Doesn't sound like you're purging enough, I mean I can't speak for the iteration of design you've gone regards the mod but I'm purging about 4-5g between adjustments no drama.

    Are you folding the teeth out to approx 45 degrees?

    Iím definitely being a bit of a Scrooge and not purging sufficiently. I also tend to make tiny grind adjustments between shots - suspect might be better to adjust the pre-infusion more and leave the grinder a bit more consistent now.

    Iíll check about he teeth tho - have a sneaking suspicion I forgot to bend them out....
