    Adjusting Cunill Tranquilo grind

    stupid question so ill make it short and sweet. when adjusting the CT, do you turn the dial clockwise or anti-clockwise to make it finer? im trying to pair it with a Gaggia Pure Espresso but thats another post...

    Anti-clock for finer. On the top of the collar you will see two sets of arrows and an f for fine and g for grosso (bigger). Adjust while grinder is running. Have you found the zero point yet?

    really? you rotate the dial anti? i thought it was the other way round. the reason im confused is because the arrows both get bigger in the middle so im not sure if the direction is actually towards the F or G. thanks for your reply, ill try this arvo when i get home.

    Re: Adjusting Cunill Tranquilo grind

    Wrong info being supplied here .......

    If you want to make grind FINER .....depress indent lever and rotate CLOCKWISE .... to your LEFT

    You will notice on the rotating ring that there are reinforcing sections on the ring and each reinforced section is worth 5 clicks. What I have done is place an arrow using plastic trim tape on the reinforced section that lines up with the indent lever ..... and I call that "MY ZERO" .... I have then kept notes on my various beans as to where the arrow should sit in relation to the indent. This will span from a +2 to -3 ( the true number from machine zero would be 10 or more ).

    I have also noticed CT has probably dropped a click since bedding in.

    If the above sounds confusing I do a pic ... if you want ?

    Cheers

    Here are my quick pics of the Tranquillo

    My current grinds settings are plus 1 for espresso and minus 2 for Decaff.... all settings referenced from the indent lever..... rotate clockwise left > Finer ... right > coarser

    hope that helps

    I love not being the only geek out there. Its so comforting to converse with like minded people rather than being chastised for having an obsession. I have never actually heard of a zero setting but will certainly investigate. Thanks guys for your info, especially about putting a mark on the machine, I will certainly follow that up. Thanks heaps.
