Subject: Hario Mini - bent drive shaft
 

As others have experienced, the drive shaft on my Hario Mini Mill is now bent, from 2-3 months of regular use, and is pretty much unusable.

Does anyone know if the bigger version of this grinder is susceptible to the same problem?

I don't really want to straighten it out, as that will just be a temporary fix and it will happen again. I thought I had found a gem of a grinder. Fuck.

I can't speak to the shaft bending, I don't have that grinder and have not used it. But could you please watch the 4 letter words, there are lots of ways to express ourselves without them, just asking politely, thanks.

I'm not a mod, but I direct your attention to the forum rules at the bottom of the main forum page. The first one, in particular.

I have noticed bends in the main shafts of the two mini mills that I owned. I straightened them using washers to protect the threads and a hammer to hammer it out straight. Worked well.
