I just got one of these, I have taken it apart for cleaning before I use it
but how do I clean the bottom burr?  There does not seem to be a way to
remove it, at least not that I can see.  I am so glad to be rid of that
cheap grinder I had.
Also, what number are you using for Drip, I saw on another post that
someone's was marked with "drip" but mine is not that I see.

The bottom burr is left hand threaded. But there is absolutely no need to
remove it, as a toothbrush will easily and completely clean it up.
Removal is child's play. Pull the hopper and upper burr, then lock a pair of
locking pliers on the lower burr and bump it clockwise. The burr will pop
loose and spin right out. Do Not omit the plastic slinger when replacing the
lower burr.
Virtuoso burrs will swap directly with the SMP burrs as a set. I did it on
my SMP with a pair kindly sent by Kyle Anderson. If one of the two fingers
on the grind adjustment ring is missing, the second one will soon leave
also. Then you'll have a grinder you can't adjust. How Fun...
