But do I need to place my hand on top of the hopper of my Preciso while its grinding to keep it steady? There seems significant movement in the hopper when I grind. Will this movement in the hopper effect the grind? This is a recently received warrenty refurbished machine.

 
My name is Kayes, and I'm obsessed with coffee.

Can't give a definitive answer, can only say I don't need to hold the hopper.  The beans do jump around a bit as they get pulled into the burrs... all grinders do this.  Keep the hopper reasonably full and it's completely unnoticeable.

Hi Kirk,

No it won't effect the grind.
The hopper with its cut out channels rides inside a circumferential lip on top of the grinder. The bottom of the hopper has two notched female channels that fit into two male notches on top of the black grinds adjustment ring. The hopper "play/looseness" has no bearing or effect on the resultant grind.

Please search my posts for further detail & pics, but some here: "Re: My baratza maestro won't grind course"
