    Help needed with Gino Rossi MC Conical

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I urgently need help as i need my grinder fixed in the next week if at all possible.

    I have a Gino Rossi MC Conical grinder and decided to buy some blades in order to replace the old ones. I removed the top bladed but had some trouble removing the top bolt on the shaft. Left it for a few days and tried again today. I snapped the bolt and now i have no idea how i can fix it.

    I think i should have gone to a technician but it looked easy and thought i could do it.

    Does anyone know where i can buy the rod/shaft (have no idea whats its called) . I i think it basically extends from the bottom of the grinder to the top where it meets the blades. I will try and and get some pictures up.

    If anyone could help me out and let me know where i can get it fixed at a decent price i would be very appreciative. Coming up to Christmas was hoping to save money.

    Gday Latte Boy...

    Chances are that you were actually tightening the bolt instead of loosening. Lots of grinders use a bolt that tightens in an anti-clockwise direction and loosens in a clockwise direction. That is, against the direction of rotation of the motor to prevent the bolt coming loose....

    Doesnt help you much now unfortunately but might help someone else contemplating the same job. All the best mate...

    Thanks Mal,

    I think you might be spot on mate. I should have logged on and posted on here before commencing.

    Since the bolt actually snapped i think i may have to find the whole rod/shaft and not sure i should be doing it myself.

    Yep right hand thread on those, and a stainless steel bolt? take the whole grinder to an engineering shop and ask them to remove it for you.

    AND / OR as you are in Sydney give Bo_Ema a call as they are the probable importers and are usually very helpful.

    Been told I might have to replace the motor shaft and all up might cost $600 or so. If anyone on here knows of a place in sydney I can take it to in order to possible drill through the shaft and create another thread, would be much appreciated.

    Gday "lb"...

    This shouldnt be necessary at all, unless the shaft is actually bent.

    Any half decent machine shop would have the necessary tools to remove the broken off section of the bolt. No need to drill out and re-thread either. You just need to make sure they know it is a L.H. thread (clockwise to loosen) and they should have it out in a jiffy for you... 8-)

    Re: Help needed with Gino Rossi MC Conical

    Looks like:

    LH thread and some one went the wrong way on the NUT !!!


    Ugly score in teh base as well..


    The shaft is part of the MOTOR !!!

    So....

    1: NEW Motor

    2: Machine shop clean up and drill out tap and then replace with ANOTHER insert that has a L/H thread exposed and a nut to suit...

    3: Bin and get a new grinder.


    Rule Number ONE. If ya not experienced DONT do it and if you do and its TIGHT. Dont force it.


    Put it down to a learning experience 8-)

    ;D
    Cruel but literal ;)


    Look a few ways to repair and it depends on teh Shop/ factory and the staff. Old school and old style trades person would have a few options...

    The L/H stud will be teh biggest issue. Go and do some searching of the Nut and Bold suppliers in you area. If you can get a suitable Stud / Bold that suits in size and thread. Then a good tradie would be able to mod the the stud with out too much trouble and machine and fit to teh shaft.

    Depending on teh tradie and how they feel... A couple of $$$ up to say $185 plus at standard Hrly rates.

    See a motor rewinder if you have any locally... They may be able to do if you have teh stud etc..

    It is all up to you NOW...
