Topic: Help w/Zass Turkish grinder (3 msgs / 55 lines)
1) From: Leslie Smith
I coveted a Zassenhaus Turkish grinder all fall, and finally got one as a 
birthday present a couple of weeks ago.  I was looking forward to a truly 
even grind, after months of using a cheap plastic-housed hand grinder from 
Cabela's (itself a step up from the whirley blade I'd been 
using).  Unfortunately, I'm still getting a few boulders in my grind, which 
is quite disappointing.  Is there something I should do to "break in" the 
grinder?  I did run the grinds through twice yesterday, which eliminated 
the boulders, but is kind of a pain.  Any suggestions?
Thanks!

PS - I'm grinding exclusively for french press.

Make sure your setting is not wandering.  Mine was and I had slightly 
uneven grinds until I add a touch of thread lock.  Otherwise, that does not 
sound right.
MM, you have a Turkish grinder do you not?  Any grind consistency problems?

problems?
I use mine just for travel and French Press and haven't really given it a
thorough evaluation. I will say a full Zass Turk takes 6-7min to grind for
med-fine French Press!
