Topic: Does anyone have experience with the "Rocky" (2 msgs / 104 lines)
1) From: Ray Kirkland
This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
I recently vacillated between the Mazzer mini and the Rocky grinders. I got
a great buy on the Rocky and have been (in general) happy with it. My
problem is this, I really need to be between settings. I use a La Pavoni
hand pump machine and it is sensitive to grind. One is so tight that I
almost pull the bolts out of the head and the other is loose enough that I
can do a two finger pull.
I have been loosening the tamp up a little on the finer grind and getting by
but would like to know if anyone knows a way that I can take the unit apart
and shim or??? and get a minor change in grind.
thank you in advance

Ray,
     I have thought about the problem with the Rocky adjusting by such =
large steps but I haven't come up with a solution.  With the Solis SL90 =
I can make creama at steps 5 through 11 with 10 and 11 requiring a good =
solid tamp.   I can think of about three ways to approach it.  One is a =
shim under the grinding burr but I would have to know how much to shim. =
  The second would be to see if the notched ring can be adjusted.  I 
haven't looked at this yet.  A third is the mechanism that catches the =
notch.  If it allows for some grinding of the surface that catches the =
adjuster, it might be possible to move as much as a third of a notch.
     I know this doesn't help much but just wanted you to know you were =
not being completely ignored.
