I remembered finding this in an older post. Pictorial of doser disassembly.

Hi,

John you would be surprised to see what sits under the lower burr carrier in grinders that haven't been cleaned at all for a few years. Here's a photo of what the lower burr carrier looked like on my used Major:

It was like rubber and very hard to remove, not to mention that it looked awful and smelled terribly.

Thats pretty gross, it looks more like what I clean off my chainsaw then what I get out of my grinders! I vacuum/brush out the burr area of my grinders at least once a week & pull the burrs once a month for a more thorough cleaning. Maybe I'll start pulling the carrier quarterly to see whats growing under there.

Gosh, I think I need to be a bit more compulsive about cleaning the grinder.
