I hope that is a trick of perspective? Cos those bottom burrs look (a lot) bigger!

 

haha yes it is they are all the same size!

 

The old ones are very worn / smooth to the touch etc.

A bit of elbow grease and she'll be good to go..... well possibly "quite a bit"........ ;-)

Great to see another mazzer brought back to life. Its got the optional longer fork designed to sit under a spring tamper - usually bought as a set for about £75, having said this the standard size fork is just £19 http://www.thecoffeelink.co.uk/product/1524 -

 

The longer fork is fine and can be used to tamp on with a hand tamper (normal) but if kitchen worktop space is an issue its a consideration,

 

I'm looking forward to seeing the rebuild progress :act-up:

are you keeping the doser standard or doing the clean sweep / egg timer mod?

 

Definitely a clean sweep mod as it obv is not great as it is - egg timer mod probably, just need to find an egg timer to get it sorted.

Got myself an egg timer today from Morrison's so will be doing that...

 

Wish I had read up more on taking the doser apart, spent a while trying to get the bolt out of the bottom of it tonight before I realised it had a locking pin in there whoops - all done now and no breakages.

 

Will try and get it all cleaned up this weekend.

thanks so much for the shrink wrap etc, really is much appreciated - finally got some time at home today to make some progress on this :)

 

Got the burr carrier off surprisingly easily - used a heat gun to.. um heat it up then 3 m4 bolts to slowly raise it up and off worked an absolute treat with no damage at all.

Also fitted the shrink wrap to my lower veins for a (hopefully) clean sweep mod! - these need cleaning up a bit!

Oh and I drilled through my egg timer so have that ready to go as well - also went really well hole central etc :)
