Yes, that's right for the top cutouts/scalloped areas.
However below those the sharp cutting edges that are rounded off are certainly not.

Ah, yes, I missed those on the first look.  The scallops fooled me the first time I saw the burrs in my Preciso, so I was thinking of that confusion.

Baratza is sending me a new paddle wheel at no cost, and reiterated that the burrs looked good. I didn't take any chances though and ordered a new removable and conical burr. We'll see who's right - Baratza or the collective experience of this group. My money is on this group!

Hi Paul,

A few minutes ago I sent you a Gmail/GoogleTalk/GmailChat communique about the burrs. {;-)

Paddlewheel is changed. With the old burrs, speed was improved, and consistency was better, but still not great.

Popping in a new removable burr brought performance back to original. I didn't replace the conical burr as it seemed quite good when I had it off - still quite sharp. I can now grind enough coffee on 9.5 for two double shots in about 20-30 seconds.

Now my question is how to avoid getting stones in my coffee?

Thanks for everyone's support.
