Posted Fri Jul 13, 2007, 3:17am Subject: Pasquini K2 mod - reduce leftover grinds on outside of burrs
I was thinking about the large amount of grinds that get left behind in my grinder, and about how lazy I normally am in cleaning stuff. It's probably a widely known mod but I made a nice drawing I want to show you.
The original post was about weighing beans so that is how I came to this subject.
At the place of the arrows I want to stick plastic vanes to the existing metal ones. The existing vanes are too small and leave grinds on the upper burr mount, and little bit on the bottom. If I use soft, flexible plastic it should last for a while.

Almost too easy :) I think I'll buy some silicone cake form and cut out square pieces. They are flexible and very strong. Then I can mount them with tie wraps to the rotating vanes. I think that's what I'll try.
Electrical tape is too flexible for my liking, and will wear off to fast (a doser doesn't move as fast as a grinding wheel).
