So we just received our Mahlkoenig Kenia (second hand) that will function as our primary brewed coffee grinder for our soon to be open shop in NYC. Naturally, we want to open her up and examine the condition of the burr set before we put her into action. The problem is our grinder was not shipped with the special tool required to remove the burrs. We would pay the $90 for a tool from the Mahlkoenig retailer, but we want to save on that so we can buy other more fun toys for the shop, or a new set of burrs if we need them.  Here's where y'all coffee experts come in. We need a home brew way to remove the burrs the cheapest way possible. Any advice would be appreciated. I will provide pictures upon request. Thanks for the help guys and gals!

Really? You're going to run a cafe and can't spend $90 for the proper tool?  And in a cafe you're much more likely to use it several times.

As I'm sure you can appreciate, opening a shop in NYC isn't exactly cheap so we need to save at every instance possible. If we need to we'll bite the bullet and buy the tool, but I was hoping to see if someone could help come up with a more creative solution. Thanks for your input.
