Recently, the lid of my Feldgrind 2 has started to rub slightly against the top of the bean hopper during grinding, which has worn away the paint. Has anyone else experienced this?

Is there a flat on the inside of the lid to locate with the flat on the sleeve ? Is the outer shaft rotating ? Is it grinding OK ?

Looks like you may be pressing down on the handle while grinding maybe?

Yes, everything seems to be working fine, it grinds a treat. Even when the handle is handle is properly located on the shaft there is contact between the lid and body, as seen here:IMG_0651 (2).jpg

Not deliberately. Then again, I used to have a Rhinowares grinder, and used to have to apply a bit of downward force to keep the handle on, but I realise that's not necessary with this grinder.

Looking at that photo it looks like the pressure on the handle is / has been the problem , see how the lid is down on the side under the handle. Possibly fit a washer underneath the lid to raise it up slightly and stop bearing down on the handle ?
