Mazzer Royal - initial setup

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Was very happy yesterday to take delivery of a Royal from the forums, and spent a few hours yesterday taking it apart to get everything looking clean.

 

All now put back together and good to go, but I can't find anywhere online that talks about how to set a Royal up.

I had assumed it would be the same as the others in the Mazzer line up, with the grind adjustment being rotated until the burrs were close together, before backing off slightly to set the finest grind point.

 

However, it looks like the grind adjustment dial on the Royal increases or decreases just the speed of the grind, as opposed to getting the burrs closer together (for example, the sign on the adjustment dial shows fast vs slow, as opposed to fine vs coarse).

 

Any tips on what I should be doing on initial setup?

 

Thanks!

Thanks coffeechap

I don't seem to be able to get the burrs closer than an inch apart - the grinder adjustment will not turn any further, even when the grinder is on.

Is this likely a lubricant issue?

Possibly it is there a screw in the top of the grind adjustment collar, if there is remove it as this prevents going beyond a certain point

Thanks coffeechap,

No screw but i took it apart again just to check for any other blocks, and cleaned out the spring areas - this seems to have sorted whatever was the block, and I've now found that biting point on the touch of the burrs.

Think I will pick up some food grade lubricant soon too as the adjustment wheel isn't the easiest to turn, even still.

Thanks for the input

IIrc chapstick has been used in the past.
