Topic: Rocky- Grind Dial Stiff 20-35 (4 msgs / 56 lines)
1) From: Chad
When I turn the hopper grind adjustment (no beans) there is no tension 
from 0 to 20 or from 35 on. But, between 20 to 35 the dial is stiff and 
requires more force to turn. Is this normal? And yes, the chute has a 
crack in it from shipping :-(

Mine does the same thing, although I would not consider it "hard" to turn
but around the 30 mark there is a noticable drag. I use mine at 27 for drip
(what I drink mostly) and I think I had it around 6 or 7 for espresso the
last time I fired up the Silvia. I have not drank espresso like I thought I
would.
You should be able to get a replacement chute from whomever you bought it
from. I saw someone's chute replacement somewhere that you could clean much
better

Check for coffee grounds in the threads. I cleaned mine out last
weekend and now turns much better. On the chute, I dremeled out the
top of mine leaving the edges for support. I can get a brush in there
and clean out the grounds after every grind.

Hmmm- so "I have not drank espresso like I thought I would." Me, too!
But I was positive there would be no espresso in my future after my very
first shot, pulled by a barista friend in her new jazz club. What DogBonz
does for coffee ought to be a la sick bird. Charbones may be the leader of
the World's Worst. What did I know? Sadly,Nothing.
Advance token a decade. Too many people were exclaiming over Sweet Maria's
beans as being excellent for roasting and the Rocky grinding for espresso. I
couldn't assume all these commenters had the same basic erroneous
information.
They all challenged my espresso prejudice. What the heck- I had everything
but the Silvia and Rocky. The Solis Maestro Plus ground plenty fine for the
thrift store $0.99 moka pot. And the flavor was intriguing.
