Redisigned. It's cleaner, the chute extends into the exit hopper now so it doesn't broadcast dust everywhere.

Still won't grind fine enough for espresso.
OK, I tried the modifications some suggested. I got those burrs as tight as they could be without touching. I even pushed down on the top of the burr while grinding (very noisy) and in the end, I still got that Folgers grind with a little fine dust on the side. Not nearly fine enough to make espresso with, plus the gear that holds the burr in place tends to slip, so today a 15 grind might be reasonably fine, but next week it will be coarse again. It does a good drip grind--fast, a bit noisy and not altogether consistent, but better than a whirly-beater. I really, really wanted to like it but it seems like a flat burr like this can't do the kind of grind that a conical burr can do.
Bought from QVC. They told me it would be a month's shipping time, but it showed up in two days.
