Hey, do you happen to remember what size metric nut ended up fitting the threads?

Also, I'm sure you've figured this out during your extensive investigation into this grinder, but I didn't read it in this thread so I'll mention it for others.  You can make the grinder truly stepless by simply flipping around the wing-nut used to adjust the grind, making it not click.  This would be very useful for dialing in the perfect grind for espresso.

pioneer478 Said:

For those who own a Hario Mini Mill Slim grinder - what is your preferred grind setting (ex- number of counter-clockwise "clicks" from the fully closed position) for drip, moka pot, and Aeropress?

Posted December 12, 2010 link

For drip, I usually go between 7-9 clicks from the tightest position.

For french press, 11 or 12.

Note: Unless you are using rather fine grinds, (e.g. for expresso up to about 5 clicks or so, you need to perform the mod/fix in order to get consistent grinds)

Seen on here and a few other boards that lower settings like 2-3 clicks are best for Espresso even on lower end machines like the bar32 or ec155, however I've tried up to click 4 and it still easily chokes the machine even with a medium tamp (not even close to 30lbs). This is with fresh roasted beans too.

Am I missing or reading something wrong, or is anyone else using higher settings for espresso? As it seems to coarse to me, but it's costing me a lot of $ and beans testing for a few days.

Ok I re-modded the Mini, doing this with tape on the shaft sucks, you'll be replacing it all the time. I saw the thread on HB about using a piece of plastic cut from a milk container, so i did that today. Not the exact size they said to use, I cut mine shorter as it was too hard to wrap tight and get into the shaft space. Though I did use some tape on the outer burr to keep it centered, and some tape on the attachment inside the center burr. The grinder now is unbelievable, very precise and consistent grinds. Even click 5 seems too fine for my CC1 as it was over extracting. So still dialing it in and playing with this grinder but I'm really impressed with it now.

My Bar32 was having issues so I think that's why it was getting choked so easily even when the Mini wasn't modded.

Maybe it's just that I'm not a tinkerer but it seems absurd to spend all that time modding this grinder after it's been pointed out that plastic particles undoubtedly end up in the grounds. Aside from it affecting the taste imagine what ingesting extracted and melted polyethylene does to your body.

@Netphilosopher How do you separate the inner shaft from the housing?
