Topic: Removing the forks on a rocky (6 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: Gary Foster
I have a rocky grinder with the doser.  Does anyone know if it is 
possible to easily remove the forks from under the doser (without 
breaking them off, that is heh).  If so, is it straightforward or do I 
have to disassemble some stuff to get to them?  I'm still at work, so I 
can't actually *look* at the grinder right now...
Thanks!

I pulled mine out....
Pulled hard.
Came out.
Warning, this is not advising you to harm your Rocky in any way.
Implement at your own risk.
Regards,
Brett

Seem to recall with a fair amount of certainty the Rocky doser model had
screws retaining the plastic PF fork. But it was something like 6 years ago
took mine off so couldn't tell you how off the top of my head and I'm not
home.

You can look at the exploded parts diagram (obtained by grinding  
black powder):http://www.espressoparts.com/category/

Looks like there may be a screw retaining the forks.
On my Rossi RR45, you have to remove the feet, four screws, and the  
bottom of the grinder, revealing a retaining screw INSIDE the  
grinder. Talk about convenient!

Okay, I'm sure someone's going to say that black powder would just  
flame out in the unenclosed grinder chamber. Well, sure, but once the  
doser gets full, thus containing the powder.......
