the old mate grind is the same size as the herb ripper fine. very nice grind.
i had a mate go to a windscreen/glass place with a bombay Sapphire bottle a couple of decades ago asking them to cut the bottom off for hot knives "and dont ask any questions either" haha shes an older woman so they complied. we did a lot of spots off that bottleDefinitely press flush bearing for the better looks!
When someone really can't change the bearing by himself just go to a car repair shop! Bit of sweet talk or cash an they may do it for ya!
Not really your problem?!I have had customers buy ceramic bearings etc and break them while trying to install them. I had to do something to fix this issue.
oh no! please DM me and ill fix this. I have some larger magnets here that you can press in securely. Or i can do it for you.I got #111 of the founder's edition, has anyone else noticed the magnet in the mid grind plate is being pulled down and out by the bottom piece? It's easily pushed back in by hand, but pulls right back out each time I open the grinder so I have to press down to close the grinder flush and push the magnet back into the middle.
Other than that love the grinder, but I have a feeling at some point I will just have to forego the functionality of the magnet and remove it altogether before I lose it as there is nothing retaining it.
Please be assured you will recive the best grinder i can make. The design is staying with the press fit flush bearing. This way i can support all the grinders i have made to date.Man, I finally got an Aroma 3 order in a few days back when they reopened, and now all this talk of flush fit vs. circlip has me feeling like maybe I got in at just the wrong time...
I really don't mind the circlip – it does seem convenient for the off-chance I ever need to replace the bearing – but I do agree that the flush fit is more aesthetically-appealing.
While this certainly does work, This can damage the bearing and dent the race. I have had customers break ceramic bearings this way. Ideally it should be pressed in/out. A lot of my customers simply don't have the tools to do this and im having to support them from the other side of the world. It's super tricky for me.
