  • Inside a Cimbali Grinder

    Hi guys, just thought id post a few photos of my recent cleaning expedition inside my new Cimbali grinder.

    I have a couple of queries...

    Firstly, what do the burrs look like (as in do they need replacing) as i dont really know what to look for?

    Secondly...how do i re-calibrate that grind-setting wheel so all the settings i wrote down prior to disassembly are still accurate?

    Anyway, hear goes.

                              Those burrs look a little blunt and there are lots od small "dings" on the front edge.

                              They look worse than mine when I stripped the grinder.....

                              And I replaced mine.... they will then last you for years!!

                              New burrs - new calibration!

                              Old burrs - you should have wound them down till they just touched and noted the reading.... after stripping reassemble.... wind them down and fix the scale in the same place.

                              But I suspect thats a bit late now!
