Eureka Mignon dial hack

Recommended Posts

Not really a hack but more of a slight improvement to enable smaller adjustments to the micro dial on the Eureka grinder. Also some more refrence points for tracking different beans.


This is my first version which could do with a little improvement & I think I could actually go for more reference points...


The mignon dial is numbered 0-5. I have added 4 deference points between each number, effectively 0.0 0.25 0.5 0.75 1.0 & so on. Dialing in between those reference point would also be very easy as each 0.25 jump is actually just over 4mm appart.


This kind of thing has been done before in a slightly different way with a numbered dial on the top, this is more o a DIY friendly option for those who fancy a crack at making one for their Eureka grinder.

I've got the Silenzio model (without the digital display) and I have to say the dial is one of the few things I dislike about the grinder. Firstly, it seems counter-intuitive to turn the dial down toward the lower numbers for a coarser setting, and up for a finer grind. More of an issue though, is that there's no indication of how many revolutions the wheel has taken, and I'm not even sure how far it turns (it gets progressively stiffer and I don't want to break something by forcing it too far). Thankfully, I don't have to change the setting too much, apart from small tweaks when I open a new bag of beans.
