Thankfully going from coarse to fine realigns the top assembly and it's repeatable so I always make sure to dial in from this direction.
Ty for the tip. I plan to get the worm gear, so this is helpful. I'll say the Ceado worm gear looks like a big value add, but seems like a bit of a 'cheat' when compared to the anfim and compak worm gear implementations.

My monster swiss grinder has no problem with going back and forth, you just need to burn a few grams of beans to clear it out.

The vario is notorious for not holding a grind setting. That was in ~2012 when I had mine. I think they have solved this with metal parts that you can retrofit. Plenty of threads on that.
