Hi all! Just wondering if anyone else has this issue. I took my vario apart to clean it, but the burrs seem stuck on to the carrier. Any tips on how to get them off?
Kind regards,
Karan

Assuming you were able to remove the screws, the burr fits very snug and you will need to work it with your fingers. If these are the ceramic burrs, do not attempt to pry it loose with a metal tool such as a screwdriver as you may fracture or chip the burrs. Try to use a wood stick such as a chop stick to work it loose. Is this where you are at?

Yup, I unscrewed the burrs but they wouldn't come off the carrier. They are the ceramic burrs
