Grinders are one of the keys to exceptional espresso. Discuss them here.
Perhaps you just need to tighten the calibration screw that you can access through the small hole above the grounds bin?

I figured it out, the bottom burr carrier has a ring void for alignment and mounting. this void was so jammed full of coffee that it was polished and looked like an o-ring convincingly enough that I never gave it a second thought. Until I started examing it and wonder why it needs an o-ring. After taking a screwdriver to it I realized it was coffee, it's all cleaned up now and the burrs now sit a few mm lower. the issue before is that it probably sat too high that the wedge never came in contact with it to push it up. I feel foolish for not recognizing it has coffee to begin with, the burr sat so high that there was no space between the upper/lower burr and the arms didn't adjust it. At least now when I play with the arms I see the burr raise and lower, I'm not sure how it worked before I took it apart and there must have been some burr travel, and taking it apart must have made it worse.
