Topic: New arrival (6 msgs / 130 lines)
1) From: TERRY TITSWORTH
Last Saturday as I was drooling onto the key board looking at grinders (my
Antigua finally went belly up) and having been without a grinder at home
(office folks did pitch in for a new grinder that stays there), the wife
said, "Why don't you go ahead and order you a new grinder as your Christmas
present. I want to get a Massage therapy so that can be my present from
you." Of course I delayed the sudden urge to say You Bet, and did the
husbandly , "Are you sure that's what you want?" routine...But was typing in
my card number as we spoke so as not to delay thing too long on the Oakland
end...
Well, my hat is off to the guys at Sweet Maria's....My new Maestro Plus hit
our stockroom bay during our company wide 'Annual Christmas Party and pizza
dinner'....Yes, Christmas pizza dinner. Ya'll are going to love this...Since
the son has taken over the business Our Christmas dinners have gone from
traditional turkey and ham to Circus type hot dogs and 'midway games'
through these hot air slides and other air chamber games to a huge pizza
party....
Sorry, got off the subject...New arrival...I now have a Sweet Maria Maestro
Plus grinder and am dying to get some coffee roasted...(ran out during the
day at work)...
Again Thanks to the crew in Oakland my new grinder is here....Usually it's
at least 6 days...They got it in the mix by early Monday morning...Great
job...
Hey RayO..I now have a real use for the bean chamber you sent me...I don't
throw anything away either...Thanks..Ray

BTW, remember that the Virtuoso burrs can directly swap out the Maestro
burrs, and you can re-index the Grind Adjustment ring if the grind pitch
doesn't match the grind icons below the bean hopper.
Either the thermal fuse in the motor field opened, the brushes wore out
(easy R&R) or the micro switch under the hopper got coffee dust in it (??) =
I
guess it's also possible the Grind Adjustment ring got turned 180 while =
the
hopper was out.
Impossible to reassemble that way, unless the keyed fingers on the G-A ring
and the keyed slots on the hopper are severely worn and/ or broken. The
fingers are the usual failure mode on the grinders.
Take a few minutes to check it and fix it. Then grind up a mint leaf in it
and sell it on the 'Bay- in Mint Condition...

There are no Liars on eBay unless the Sun is up. Or down.

That sounds great to me - I decided that this Christmas we're going to have
'make your own' burritos, subs, salad, fruit & cookies. My kids think it's
great - and I can spend more time relaxing. (Hey, in our house pizza is as
good as it gets - might make some ahead of time if I feel like it, too...)

At the present time I would need a large sturdy box to transport the old
grinder in...And would need to make sure there were no open areas on the
bottom of the box...(so the screws wouldn't migrate out)...
Great reply as usual RayO...

Yeah, but,....The retired owner really knew how to treat the employees...I
think the kid is trying to relive his childhood, or make up for same...(Glad
someone caught the pizza deal...Thanks Lynn).
