There doesn't seem to be any wobble at all. When we turn the machine on with just the bottom burr on it is not excessively noisy but I do notice a sound from lower than the burrs.That sound may be something like bearings or bushings - it's not terribly noticeable. My husband's hearing isn't great so he doesn't pick up little nuances but he thought he could hear the sound I was referring to. Again, it's not a very noticeable sound - indeed it may be normal and we don't know what it is we are hearing. It also may be they are just starting to wear or something and if so what do we do about that? When we put the top burr back on then things seem to become more noisy. Not consistently but on occasion when we turn the machine on and then turn it off and after a second it sounds like the burrs are still spinning and then they stop on their own in just a second or two - that is also a bit noisy.. I can not recall hearing the burrs do this previously. As I said it is not happening every time but once it starts to happen it occurs more consistently.
