Does anyone know how to tell if you're setting the OE lido grind settings below zero?  I don't want to gnash the burr grinder, and even tho it has the brass washer, I've lost count of my rotations.  I've got a pretty fine grind now, but would like to go a little finer.

how old is your grinder?  I ask because I've read that the zero point moves from the brass washer over time.  The way to tell is to tighten the grind until you hear the burrs click while turning.  This is your zero point.  If it's not at the brass washer, then you'll want to make a mark somehow, for future reference. I suppose that after another long stretch, you may have to move that mark.

Thanks all - I've only had it for about 6 months, and it's still a bit hard for me to "hear" when it touches (as in the video), but I'll keep futzing with it.
