My only concern is the alignment of the KA burr assembly - does it justify such an upgrade. And, because of the burr-assembly, and it's apparent lack of alignment between the fixed and rotating burrs, would better burrs make a difference? Heck, it would be great if my concerns were unjustified, and this mod could make a decent grinder great.
Please keep us posted.
well i have seen it discussed that the KA needs better burrs. i agree.
i had great success with espresso using my KA and stock burrs.
i was on ebay and found this: LA MINERVA adjustable retail COFFEE GRINDER commercial (looks extremely similar in design to the KA, no?)
in one of the pics i saw some mazzer burrs.
this grinder looks a lot like the KA, with mazzer burrs? hrmmmm....then i researched the burr sizes and found that mini burrs match the KA proline burrs.
i think it could be worth it to have the fun to see what happens.
i think alignment should be easy because i can use one of the existing holes from the 2hole pattern to help align the other holes.
so this will leave me with a nice burr set and a grinder design with a straight path into the PF.
i dont think adding mazzer burrs will make it grind any worse than it does now.
plus its a fun project.
wish i had more tools or a drill press.
