Yep - recommend pushing on the burrs and tightening the knob carefully to establish zero where burrs are beginning to lock and then marking that point on the arm and then backing off before turning the handle to avoid damaging the burrs. My alu lower section fits pretty tight - lucky me - but another forum member has reported same experience you're having - fitting a larger 'o' ring would seem the answer.

Two questions:

1. Is there a cleaning/maintainence regime we should carry out to keep the grinder in good order? If so, how do you do it?


2. Muppetry - has anyone else ground 1 full turn too fine or coarse than they expected? Just did it myself yesterday for the 1st time. Idiot! I change the grind settings quite a lot so i'm going to get in the habit of resetting to zero each time i use it and then dialling in.

Will this cause any problems for the steel burrs over time?


No, my zero point still as it was when received too.


I am noticing a large amount of static at finer grinds - some at Aeropress grind, much more at espresso grind. Anyone else noticing this?


Adding a few drops of water to the beans (RDT) does help, though I haven't found a convenient way to do that yet - dripping in with fingers doesn't feel repeatable and often leaves the upper chamber with slightly damp, partially-ground beans adhering to the frame just above the burrs...

I get hardly anything sticking to the catch cup


I do but it's a non-issue as I don't grind into the catch cup anymore rather a soup bowl. I like to inspect my grinds lol


Anybody else not use the catch cup?
