Missing Mazzer burr springs

Postby Erich4130 on Thu Sep 29, 2011 3:36 pm

Hi-
Just picked up a Mazzer Mini in very good condition but the springs (3) that support the upper burr are missing.
Anyone know a good source or can someone post the dimensions and image of these springs?
Thanks, Erich

Espresso Parts has them here; I found it by searching their site using this exploded diagram. The part is labeled MAZ50 in the diagram. Below are photos of the springs in question:

They're probably missing because someone turned over the grinder to dump out the grounds and forgot the springs will fall out into the trash (don't ask how I know).
