The titanium doesn't like oily beans. Best results with fresh roasted beans that don't have an oily shine to them.

The workaround when beans won't go through the grinder - have a wooden coffee stirring stick (or a chopstick etc) and stir the beans in the hopper so they get down into the grinder.

    The beans I've been using taste great and go through the grinder without sticking. The roaster ships the beans on the same day he roasts - he writes the roast date on the bag. This espresso blend is also the tastiest espresso blend I've ever had. The price is great and the shipping cost is low. I get my order in the mail two days after the beans were roasted - fresh as can be.

    redbirdcoffee dot com I get the RedBird espresso blend but he makes a good decaf too.

How often should you need to clean the bean grinder? We seem to be cleaning it every 3 days which seems excessive


No brand or model? Okay, general reasons why grinders clog up. Most common I've found is worn out burrs. The plates, depends on composition and usage. Metal plates last longer but not forever. If your grinding thousand pounds of beans don't expect it to last. I've seen massive grinders fail within a month. It all depends on two factors; How much and how fine. Large grind size will increase life and fine grinds wear the burrs out very fast. Especially Turkish settings. Fine grinds also generate a lot of heat. This can cook the coffee again and make it change in flavor. Heat also forces the oils in the bean to coat the burrs and make them dull out which causes more heat. Prolong grinding will also burn out motor.
* Worse case senario; Very oily beans ground to espresso fine. This is usually the case with 'local' roasters. Poor quality beans, extreme roasting (pushing the max on toasting limits), and extreme fine grinds for a particular roast. Fine grinding tends to work on dryer beans. Heavy moisture (under roasted or beans not aged enough to outgas and dry out) will gum up any grinder. Let your roaster know what your trying to do. Otherwise go with a name brand and correct bean for the flavor profile your looking for. Don't expect 5 star espresso from a cheap roast.
* Final, most likely worn burrs needs to be changed out. Off chance the motor is burnt out or starter capacitor needs replacement. If it is the motor or cap, then you need to review your grinding methods as grinder motors are usually tough enough to handle the range of grinds listed in the specs. burning the motor is a clear sign of abuse.
* Have your vendor look at the grinder. They will know right away what's wrong.

I have an older 6" bench grinder. some times it works, thn it wont. It growls and is trying to spin and it does turn the wheels slowly. Does it need oil? How can i get it running freely gain?


A grinder that growls when you start it usually means the bearings are worn out or very dry. You can try a little WD40 spray in the bearing area and if that seems to work use some heavier oil to keep it running. It's good to oil the bearings every so often I find.

How can i replacethe carbon brushes on my angle grinder as they are totally and completely worn off


Buy the new brushes from the manufacturer. You already have the old ones out - put the new ones in the same way you took the old ones out.

Hi There is a spring that holds tension on the paul (ratchet) underneath that is broken. You need to replace the spring. Remove the plate on the bottom of the doser to see the paul and spring. The spring is flat on most Rocky's.

How to Protect myself?


When running a die grinder, it is important to follow some simple safety rules. Never wear loose jewelry while operating the grinder. Neck chains can easily become caught in the die grinder and cause strangulation. Safety goggles should also be worn at all times.
