Royal refurb

Recommended Posts

Really nice fluffy pile, very voluminous. Think maybe it's just a bit of a learning curve having a doser for the first time. Not sure why I was so against them previously!

I posted previously but it might have gone for moderation as I posted a link.

 

The grinder looks awesome, really like the colours you went for.

 

With regards to distribution I decided to go for the elvinator (see my previous post in the grinder section for more info) which is a nice mod that creates a nice pile in the middle of the basket. Worth a look if you are interested.

 

Cheers

I've got a schnozzermatic or whatever it's called in there which seems to direct most of the grinds in the basket - very little mess so far. I think they're just ever so slightly off centre but will double check this theory in the morning. The Elvinator looked a bit complicated to get installed - did you get it in trouble free?

Yes it was pretty easy, I just used a couple of small pieces of tape to hold it in place while I screwed on the base of the dosing chamber.

I was going to leave the flap on the switch at the doser on as it looked like it would break up any clumps when the grinds hit it on the way out - is it best out of the way?

Unfortunately I've seen it in person and it is indeed a beautiful thing! My thwaker is stiffer than Gary's, well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

If you had a thread about your grinder projects I would subscribe to it ;)

 

Sounds cool.

Doser switches and hopper safety switch removed. I thought it was fine to use with them but it's much nicer without.

 

Grind speed is a bit disappointing, almost 15 second for 18g. Was expecting sub 10. Does this indicate the burrs are past their best? They were really quite smooth when I cleaned the machine.

It should be around 8 seconds single dosing (this will depend on your solution for the weight /item on top of beans as the popcorning effect adds time). A full hopper and im sure you'd be looking at sub 6 seconds for 18g
