Must be possessed... Under normal circumstances, it is hard to imagine how dropping the bottom burr *is going to give a finer ground..Originally Posted by CJ link=1224056299/0#0 date=1224056299
1: Two burrs are in place... *
2: Bottom one fixed *:)
3: Top one is adjusted downwards to reduce the distance between the burrs to give a finer output.
Depending on the distance between the burs at set up *O setting should almost have the burrs touching and *20 plus should see a bigger gap = course grind.
A: If one is not seating the top burr correctly, it can be done such that even at O or close to O the grind is course... *This then compounds and adjustments you might make to the bottom burr.
B: After adding washers, I always inspect under good lighting and then start course and slowly bring the setting down. *;)
A mate did his and caused problems as he incorrectly seated his top burr, then added washers and then correctly seated the top bur.. *Outcome was that at a setting of 10 his burrs were engaging... * :-[
At the end of the day, if every thing is in place as designed: I fail to see, how dropping washers and lowering the bottom burr *will give you a finer grind... ::)
