Topic: Virtuoso burr recalibration. (4 msgs / 79 lines)
1) From: sci
BTW, does anybody know how to make a Virtuoso grind finer? I have done
the recalibration per Baratza's instructions, and adjusted the inner
rings as far as they'll go, but "0" is still fairly coarse, and the
burrs are still .5 mm away from each other.
My next attempt was to be put a thin washer under the cone burr to
lift it up, then do a recalibration again. Any thoughts?
Thx
Ivan

Sounds to me as if you might have a problem which I am sure the Baratza
folks would help you solve. They have given me very good service. Phone
number is in the manual and also on line.

Baratza support responds very quickly to emails and you can call them, as
well.
I re-calibrated my Maestro and had no trouble getting the burrs to touch.

The Grind Adjustment Ring needs to be adjusted towards the finer pitch
(Burrs closer).
My problem was the exact opposite, but its New Owner (another Ray) in its
New Home was thoroughly happy with it as delivered, especially with the new
Virtuoso burrs.
The actual adjustment is straightforward, nearly obvious. You can wind up
losing a little ball, and/ or its spring. Beware! It's been nearly two years
since I last saw it, so you'll get much better directions from Baratza.
Pray you're not so unfortunate as to talk to a certain catatonic French fry
flipper in Step 13, doing his externship posing as Customer Service for
Baratza.
They ship these grinders however they happen to fall together. Mine was an
interference adjustment three steps below Drip. You pays your money, and
What You See Is What You Get. Sorry, but you just have to adjust it.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
