About the inner diameter, i can only says that in my DF64, a burr with 37mm inner diameter, can't fit in the lower burr carrier, so definitely will not bring any extra issue.
When i say "can't fit" i mean that the burr it wobbling on the carrier, and only a lucky coincidence will allow a user to fix it aligned...but as it happen to me with the Mazzer 33M, the "impossible" alignment has last 1 grind session.
About the teeth i can only tell you that the stock Italmill has 56 teeth so maybe 72 teeth are for a bigger diameter burr?

So 37mm ID won't fit in most cases. Fiorenzato, Mazzer or mysterious K110 burr...

Considering that the inner diameter of 38mm of the DF64 burr carrier is the real "centering" reference for the burr, even if a burr with ID 37mm can fit, due to the different thickness i do believe it will probably have a no good axial alignment at all.
Just my thought.

I'm curious if anyone has printed this adjustment guide and tried it on their G-Iota? It looks so much better than the guide that comes stock on the grinder.

I am a little hesitant to pre-order this grinder considering how new it is to the market, but I really feel like this could be the grinder that knocks the P64 off it's pedestal for me.

I've printed & fitted one of the designs. I didn't have any printable vinyl so I printed on HQ paper, sandwiched it between two pieces of self-adhesive plastic film then used a compass cutter to shape it.
I used a little double sided tape to stick it to the existing scale & doesn't look bad at all to me.

It doesn't look bad in the slightest! It looks great!

Thank You.

The scale in your post has an error at the 20 marker. I've corrected it with the one I used & also tried to align some of the numbers that were a little offset. Here is a link to the file

Thank you! I also wanted to ask if Espresso Outlet was performing alignment tests for the DF64 if you choose to have SSP burrs installed. I'm planning on reaching out to them with a couple of questions, but I know that other vendors are offering this service.

Yes, they are. I emailed Joe at EO after reading similar reports and he confirmed he'll be aligning units purchased with SSP burrs.

Just ordered a grinder and it should arrive by the end of May (a lifetime from now it feels like). I opted for stock burrs as this is my first foray into flat burr grinders having come from a Comandante the past year. Hoping that my inevitable upgrade to SSP burrs will come down the line once I've a better understanding of the grinder. Does anybody have any comparisons for the grind produced by the grinder for drip/pourover? I primarily drink light roasts so I'm eyeing the SSP Red speed unimodals down the line but hoping the current burrs can suffice for the time being.
