    Rancilio Rocky part needed

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just curious as to where Ai would find a specific part for my rancilio rocky doserless.i will attach a diagram of the part I'm after but it's the brass upper part that holds the top burr and turns for fine or coarse coffee. I feel as if mine has been threaded by previous owner and find it very difficult to get it in the right spot after cleaning.

    G'day mate...

    Are you sure that the burr carrier has been cross-threaded?
    More likely that coffee oils and particles have become adhered to the thread and just needs to be thoroughly cleaned out with a tooth-brush or fine wire brush.

    After cleaning, lubricate the thread with a fine dusting of graphite powder or other dry lubricant and you should be good to go...

    The threads are definitely clean, I'm very meticulous with my cleaning regime. It looks very worn out at the very start of the threads. I will pull apart again soon as I want to replace the small bolts for the burrs as they arnt liking the best L. I will try the graphite powder though!
