OK, it was easy. I took a small hex wrench and got in there to unscrew the set screw. I did not need to remove anything. Now I can adjust the top burr ring further down. ahhh, sweet fine espresso grind. It must have been like a 1 mm hex key I used. I was happy because out of all my hex keys I guessed correct on the first try!

I really like the Isomac Granmacinino.
*I owned a Rocky doser model before and I miss the markings to indicate grind settings. On the Granmacinino when you turn to adjust the burrs you have very little to give you any indication of where you were before you started adjusting. *It grinds super fine now that I have moved the limit screw. *I have a 220v and have no problems with the motor when grinding. *Looks are great. Sig. Fontana tried to get me to buy the Macinino Prof. instead of the Granmacinino because it was cheaper, but for me the looks of the Granmacinino are so nicer and stylish. Makes a difference when it is on your kitchen countertop everyday. *I have no problems with the grinds getting stuck (in the nose, etc) in the machine. *No static problems.
One mod I did with the Aluminum lid was stick some masking tape, doubled up, next to the edge. This dampens the vibrations of the lid on the plastic hopper when grinding and makes for a much quieter grind. Because it is under the lid you do not see the tape which means the grinder still looks fabulous.

i've owned this grinder for quite a few months and it hasn't given me any trouble at all. however, i've recently purchased an ECM giotto (a HUGE step up from my previous machine) and have realised that i'll need to modify it, as some others have, to get a finer grind by removing the screw(s) under the hopper.
just asking how i would go about this and which screw(s) must be removed (ie. the small one in the grind ring with the head pointing down, or the one underneath it).
