Topic: Rocky arrived (4 msgs / 73 lines)
1) From: jim gundlach
FedEx finally delivered the Rocky, when UPS said they would, eight days 
not four from California to Alabama.  So much for the hope that changing 
shippers would result in quicker delivery.
The Rocky is a much heavier piece of equipment than the Solis 166 was.  
It will take some getting used to.  I have already seen that I can use a 
small paint brush to clear out the dosing container.  One question for 
you Rocky owners out there, where should I set the grind for espresso in 
a SL-90?  I know that wherever I start, I will probably have to make 
some adjustments.
I'm ready to put the Zass to bed for a while, well maybe I'll leave it 
out until this hurricane is through, it is looking more like Opal, which 
came right through here with 85 mph winds, every hour.

Here's hoping the Zass won't be necessary...;-(

Jim,
Lets hope Isidore is even worse at delivering.  We hope that it just
wears itself out as a tropical storm and disappears from the scopes. 
Good luck with Rocky - I can see a BUNCH of shots being pulled in La
Place in the next couple of hours. 
John - glad to be out of the cross-hairs - hoping everyone is.

	All Rocky's are different, and I can't speak exactly for the SL-90 
(so why, one might ask, am I replying...), but I'd start around 6 clicks 
or so above "true zero". To find true zero, turn on Rocky when empty and 
slowly (very, very slowly) turn the hopper until you hear the burrs just 
beginning to touch. This is your true zero, and is rarely at zero on the 
dial (and will also move as Rocky gets a bit worn in).  Six-ish clicks 
above this should give you a good start.
	Enjoy your new toy.
