Cafelat Robot day 1 issues - Help needed

Yes, it is very weird. I wonder if I am unconsciously pressing unevenly with the 2 hands. When I get to 4 bars I get significant resistance, but the robot does not choke and I get a very unpretty flow with no sign of a properly centred cone. Yesterday, as a test to see if the grinder was acting

First Attempt at French Press w/New Grinder

Got the new Forte and my first attempt at FP with 30g/500 g at 203 resulted in a fairly smooth cup, uncertain about the taste at this point being the first cup. I was following a 4 min initial, followed by 5 mins. However, I noticed that after the initial 4 mins, all the grounds had fallen leaving

Help needed! Piece flies out of Niche Zero while grinding.

Yup, cover roll pin {image} Edit: Thinking more about it, the plastic hinge joint could be cracked from an overly large pin or robust handling
