Topic: Zass Turkish Grinder problem.. (5 msgs / 100 lines)
1) From: Scott Miller
So the top to my grinder has somehow become lodged in place and won't budge.
Any suggestions on how to get the top off without damaging things?
cheers,
Scott

Scott...I don't have a Zass Turkish but I do have a cheaper no name turkish from a thrift store. You might try getting the top hot while keeping the body as cool as possible. I'm thinking hot water or controlled flame of some sort. The top should expand enough to loosen a little.
I'm still coming to Savannah soon and stopping by the store.

You're most likely to get it loose with a twist of some sort.  The 
idea of heating it up to help it expand and loosen is also a good one.
Now, are we talking the top *chamber* or just the top *cap*?
If it's the cap you can try striking the edge with, say, the handle 
of a wooden spoon to knock it off.  I'd lay the spoon along the 
chamber and sweep it up and into the edge of the cap.
If it's the chamber then I'd just grab the top and bottom with 
different hands and twist like heck.

Yea, it's just the top cap. I'll fiddle with it tomorrow and let folks
know what works.
cheers,
Scott

The idea is "Jammed in place..." If it's brass, the metal is soft and easy
to deform. I think Brass tends to become softer as you repeatedly deform or
bend it. It is already damaged, or it wouldn't be jammed together
Heating to several hundred degrees and letting it cool tends to harden it
and resize the piece.
Search for Brass malleability, work hardening or tempering...
