  • Compak K3 Adjustment Collar

    Question to Compak owners
    This is my first Compak
    -Should the K3 show evidence of looseness /slack / movement in the top burr holder / adjustment ring collar. this is from the 3 tangs / guides that lock in the top burr. I checked a K10 at a roaster /cafe I got coffee from mid week and it was rock solid at the adjustment ring.
    This is causing sloppy / poor grind adjustment when n use.
    Remove top burr holder cleaned and re-assembled twice now as per owners manual.

    Any comments
    Thanks

    Hello EA,

    When you actually look at the perceived "slack" in the top burr holder, you will see that it's just the mechanism.

    The friction built into the system ensures that the top burr is rock solid in operation and does not move at all.

    Have a good look over how it actually operates when you next have it out.

    Cheers

    Chris

        As Chris says in post #2, the movement/slack that one detects is purely with respect to the black plastic collar that one uses to adjust the grind setting. There is no slack in the burrs / burr holders (or at least shouldn't be). If the slack on the adjustment ring is causing a problem, after setting grind gently push the collar anti-clockwise so that the slack is taken up before taking note of the grind setting.

            Not sure if it's normal but mine does that. I leave it in the most clockwise position of the wiggle, as that is where it want to move to when I grind, and then it is solid.
