A side note here.

I inspect tools that are used in aircraft manufacture and I have not yet seen anything that truly is idiot proof! NEVER UNDERESTAMATE THE ABILITY OF AN IDIOT TO MESS SOMETHING UP!

That is a comment in general and not intended to apply to anyone in particular!!!

Sometimes the designers and engineers make products that are prone to confusing the users.

Yes, speaking as a qualified Idiot
I've owned a Compac K3 touch for almost two years and it has performed flawlessly,
grinding at least 5 shots a day, every day.
Great grinds, very little clumping, easy to adjust.
Have never had to clean it yet.

You or whom-ever won't have any problems as long as you follow
one  golden rule that goes for just about any grinder, and that is,
Always have the grinder running while adjusting, epecially when adjusting finer.
