Sigh, that is the one I just ordered.  I do hope it only wanders a very 
little.  In that I only will be grinding for drip, hopefully a little 
wander will not be too bad.  For such the rep that Zass has, I am surprised 
it does not have a locking collar of some ilk.  I have a "cheap" plastic 
housing burr grinder I have been using that cannot wander (although, the 
caveat to that is that it is not quick to change settings)

John,
(So, you're back, eh?  I need to send you some coffee...)
The 169 is still a great grinder.  You may also want to consider
altering it using the hack I made to mine that I posted here a while
back, so you don't have to mess with that tiny, awkward and
inconvenient drawer.
Also, Ron mentioned trying LocTite to see if it would solve the
wandering problem.  I used the lowest grade of "post-assembly" type
they make, and it worked perfectly.  It "gummed it up" enough to keep
it from wandering, but I can still adjust it when I want to.  If you
make a lot of adjustments, you may need to apply another drop
occasionally, but it works great.  The Sharpie line is still a
necessary feature, though, otherwise you can't tell whether it's
drifted or not.
I'm getting another 169 before long.  For that one, I'm going to be
making my own wood base out of walnut.  I'd have done it already,
except that the hack is working MUCH better than I expected.

This weekend I will attempt to locate a matching nut to jam the =
adjusting nut against, I think this should work? and should stop the =
traveling of the adjustment nut.
