    Adjusting Dosage on Macap M4 - how?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Guys, I know theres a few Macap M4 owners in here, so I thought I get some advice on this one.

    Ive got the current model M4 with Doser and Micrometric adjustment.

    Im trying to work out how the dosage adjustment works. The manual refers to a pin inside the doser, which is to be turned clockwise or anticlockwise to adjust the dosage accordingly.

    Theres a vertical metal rod out towards the edge of the doser, but it doesnt appear to turn. Is this the correct bit, or am I looking in the wrong place?

    Im sorry I dont have one in front of me, so am only suggesting based on how most work...

    The adjustment is inside the dosing chamber - if there is a screw on the top of the central part, then thats it.

    Dont make too much of an adjustment - test as you go, and if you go too far, youll unscrew the whole lot. ;D

    Be aware that these measured doses really only work when you have a dosing chamber that has a LOT of ground coffee in it, and that of course, is something any coffeesnob will frown upon.

    I suggest you continue using it as is - after all, a few extra thwacks are all part of the theatre and fun of coffee preparation! ;)

    Herzog - I have an M4, its the tall black rod in the centre of the chamber and has a slot for screwdriver on top.

    To decrease dose tuen clockwise until you hear it click. To increase you will need strength of a screwdriver. Each turn only seems to make a small change to the dose so you may find it takes a few to get right.

    good luck..... ;)

    Having said that, dose size affects the drop angle on the M4. ;)
