Posted Wed Jan 15, 2014, 1:22pm Subject: New York City / NJ area: Who wants to help me with gasket and burr replacement?
I posted this before about a year ago with no luck - thought to try it again: I live in north Jersey (close to NYC) and have an Alexia that hasn't had the gasket changed since I bought it in 2010. I have a Mazzer Mini from 2004 that I plan to change burrs for the first time.
I'm not particularly clumsy, but I know the grinder burrs can be stripped if changed incorrectly. I'm afraid the Alexia gasket is stuck on since it hasn't been changed in 4 years. So I'd like help with both. I know there are guides online, but nothing beats a real person with experience.
I work for a wine & spirits company and I would trade some booze for your help. We can drink some coffees too! Any takers?
