Topic: German Garantie hand grinder...any suggestions (4 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Thbull
Morning,
Sitting on my desk is a Garantie (für jedes stück) grinder that a
co-worker brought in...he's been collecting antiques for a LONG time.
Any suggestions on adjusting the burrs, replacing the burrs...etc.
I'm trying to see if he's got any of those gigantic fly-whell grinders too.
Thanks in advance!

"Garantie (fuer jedes Stueck)" just means "warranty for every piece".
Can you post a picture of it somewhere? is there some other text or logo
on it? Old german hand grinders can be veeery good, but I've also seen
some pretty bad ones. I'm currently using an old hand grinder from my
grandmother and another old one bought on a flea market ... both are
very good in terms of grind quality, comparable to a Gaggia MDF. One can
grind fine enough for espresso, but I haven't yet checked if it works
good in that regards ... mostly I use them for the aerobie and the
vacpot.

What do you mean by fly-whell?

Cranking is good for the workout ;)

Lukas,
I can help you with "fly-whell". I'm quite sure it is a typo, and what was
meant was "fly wheel".

Since there are no major markings on the outside, I'll see if he lets
me take it apart so I can look inside. I'll try to get some pictures
posted somewhere to share.
Thanks...
