I'm a Brit new to the site in SW France. In 2003 whilst in Italy I bought a Rancilio Silva espresso with grinder attached. All is working OK but I have not used it for a good while. Now I find the grinder is stuck on its last setting. It wont budge when I push down the black key below and try to regulate the grind by turning. Can any kind persons give me some advice how to proceed to unstuck it. I am wondering if its rusted due to my not using the macine. Just to introduce myself coffeewise I am a keen collector of French stovetops, salam/ selecta drips and the oddly named "vietnamese type" individual servers (probably named after French colony of Vietnam before the last war). I also have a few US Silex, Cory etc vacuum pots, a rare French ones and the usual old British & French made Conas' and Hellums. Now I'm getting into Hario V60 drips which is in some respect a continuation of the French Salams & Selectas'. I also very keen on the Italian Vesuviana/Trimel pots. Voila that me and if there are any Brits etc keen to exchange bits in Aquitaine please contact me.
