Topic: Cleaning old grinders (6 msgs / 144 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
Well, the grinder off of fleabay came in - a Cory DEG.  The hopper has a
bit of rust starting to show.  Any suggestions on dealing with that?  I
seem to remember someone recommending veggie oil.  Any other
recommendations?  I'm still at work and haven't laid hands or eyes
thereupon, so I'm looking by my wonderful wife's eyes.
I'll roast up some rather old robusta or some Java WP Decaf for dialing in
this weekend.

Clean it up with some steel wool - don't remove the paint though...
I have owned a couple of those.  Eddie now has one, and Ginny has the
other...
Coffee has oils - they can actually help with that... run a couple cups
thru....
My 2 cents,
Brett

Thanks Brett - After giving it a good look over and running two batches
of instant rice through it for clean out. The burr adjuster works, but
only with some mechanical advantage, so I think they'll benefit from a
clean up.  So, think I'm going to do a total disassembly and clean up.
It'll probably be next weekend or week after next, but I'm going to try
to do a photo documentary and maybe post it up on the HR site, if I can
find the time.

I have disassembled mine, cleaned it up - yeah the dial is gunked up with
old coffee oils.  Use some orange-oil based cleaner, and it will shine up
nicely...
Don't take the motor apart.  If you do, the brushes will fall out, and you
can spend half an hour finding them and getting them back in order.
I really liked my Cory grinders.  That's why I bought the restaurant sized
Cory Grindmaster - which I also disassembled and cleaned...
My stuff can be seen on my website:http://homeroast.freeservers.comBrett

Thanks for the site.  Yep - I wasn't planning on a motor disassembly,
but physical.
Did you ever do anything with a seal around the grind hopper?  Looks
like there's a propensity for grinds to fall, either there, or from the
grinding mechanism.  Want to look at that.
