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. Jason -- Jason Brooks jbrookshttp://javajeb.wordpress.com
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 On 5/18/07, Jason Brooks wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com

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 On 5/19/07, Jason Brooks wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com
Try a little Never Dull on the rust followed by a good cleaning Jerry ************************************** See what's free athttp://www.aol.com.

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.
