  • How to find the "zero" point on a grinder: An alternative way using a torch

    Hi guys, I have just discovered a brilliant way to find the zero point on a grinder.

    I cannot guarantee it will work but it works great for me.



    All you need is a torch or any source of bright light (perhaps an iPhone would do the work).

    -Place the torch in the hopper as shown in the picture below.

    -Look through the grinder shoot.

    -Be astounded the bright horizon emitting through the burrs.

    -Slowly decrease the gap between the burrs by turning adjustment ring.

    -When the light disappears almost completely, you are now a few micrometres away from the zero point.

    Hope this helps!

    Or you could use the standard method, wind the top burr down till the top and bottom just start to touch (you cant mistake it) back off a whisker until the noise stops, done.
