After some help if possible?

 

i bought a Feldgrind secondhand 2 months ago, perfect grinder for me for where I am on my cofffee journey but I’ve used it today and the cover over the grind mechanism started to slip, end result cove4 has come off.

Has this happened to anyone else?

 

if it has what adhesive did you use to fix it?

 

thanks Neil

Hi if it happens to anyone else.......I’d recommend .Loctite 638. Works a treat.

LOCTITE 638 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts, particularly where bond gaps can approach 0.25 mm. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage due to shock and vibration

Hi, I used the feldgrind for my V60, perfect, and a lot better than the hario skerton, less fines and the grind is a lot more uniform so i’d definitely recommend for V60. I upgraded to a Sage DTP and the feldgrind is pretty damn good for grinding espresso, uniform grind, quick, easy to adjust and solid and although the cylinder body detached that was easy to fix.

 

I have an order placed at knock for a new rubber sleeve and haven’t received a reply or my order in two months so I can understand some of the comments against knock on the delivery side but you can’t fault the grinder when you have one and you see and feel the design and engineering time that’s gone into it. Would wholeheartedly recommend buying one if you can get hold of one.

I also have this issue. Contacted made by knock by email and instagram and they ignored me. Very rude of them! I've been using no nonsense superglue for a while, but it doesn't last long and eventually fails. Loctite 638 sounds like it will do the job though! I'll pick some up. Didn't realise how many loctite versions there were!

 

Here is a description on some of the loctite versions for cylindrical fitting parts:

 

LOCTITE® 638 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts, particularly with narrow bond gaps approaching 0.25 mm.
 The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage due
 to shock and vibration. It not only works on active metals but also on passive substrates, exhibiting robust cure performance.
 The product offers high-temperature performance and good oil tolerance, and tolerates minor surface contaminants.
  • High temperature resistance
  • Tolerates minor contaminants, including industrial oils
  • High strength on all metals, including passive substrates (e.g. stainless steel)
  • Ideal for shafts, gears, pulleys and similar cylindrical parts

 

LOCTITE® 648
 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts. The product cures when confined in the
 absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage due 
to shock and vibration. It exhibits a robust curing performance. The product also works on passive
 substrates and offers high-temperature performance and good oil tolerance.
  • High temperature resistance
  • Proven to be tolerant of minor contamination due to industrial oils
  • High strength on all metals, including passive substrates (e.g. stainless steel)
  • Ideal for retention of parts with a clearance or interference fit
  •  
LOCTITE® 660
 is designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts, particularly where bond gaps occurs
 without the need for remachining. The product cures when confined in the absence of air 
between close-fitting metal surfaces and prevents loosening and leakage due to shock and
 vibration. LOCTITE 660 exhibits excellent gap cure characteristics and is also suitable for retaining shims.
  • Ideal for repairing worn parts without remachining
  • Enables re-use of worn bearing seats, keys, splines or tapers
  • Suitable for retaining shims
  •  
  • LOCTITE® 603
 is a high-strength retaining compound. Designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts, 
especially for sintered bearings and also where consistently clean surfaces cannot be assured. 
The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close-fitting metal surfaces and
 prevents loosening and leakage due to shock and vibration. It has a high oil tolerance.
  • High-strength retaining compound
  • Especially suitable for sintered bearings
  • High oil tolerance
