You've heard of my frustrations with grinders breaking, and old motors - so
I wanted to tell you a success story.... I spent the day rebuilding a Cory
Coffee Grinder "CCG-3" - so I wanted to tell you about it!
Bought it off eBay - what a rusty mess. Inside is a General Electric Motor
in excellent condition, and lots of coffee and rust. So I disassembled the
whole thing, and used a paint brush and Naval Jelly - cleaned it right up!
I then used ceramic-cooktop cleaner to polish it, and Stainless Steel
cleaner to make it shine. I also replaced the electric cord with a medium
duty power tool replacement cord...
So with it all dressed up and pretty, I put a pound of coffee in it, and
turned it on. Woohoo - I've got a restaurant grade coffee grinder that
grinds perfectly for drip! AND BOY IS IT FAST! Less than 30 seconds and I
was done with the pound...
My espresso machine replacement is next, but I gotta figure out what I want
to do with the grinder... I think we're heading to eBay!
