Cheers!

My experience is similar from 0 to 2.5 works well for me

The LIDO 3 is seriously my favorite manual grinder to date.

Because of all these very favorable reviews I decided to purchase one. Waiting for them to get back into stock in August. The LIDO 3 will be my first "prosumer" grinder and I'll be using it for manual brewing. Hoping when I report back I have the same thing to say!

I just got my LIDO 3 in - I was playing around a bit with it, moving the adjustment ring around. I set it back to zero, locked the adjustment ring, and now I can't get the locking ring to 'unlock'.... I didn't overtighten it, barely tightened it at zero. Now I hear a lot more burr rubbing at zero as well.

I'm guessing this is that the instructions referred to as locking up the locking ring... how can I get the assembly to unlock? Twisting it with brute force in either direction does nothing (both the locking ring AND the locking/adjustment ring together). Should I take out the bottom screw?

No, That screw will not solve your problem. Take the catch cup off and whack the rings with a wood dowel several times, they will separate.

As Old Nuc said just remove catch cup which will allow a better grip

Mine also sometimes is well seated
Which is actually better than the opposite as it would lose its settings if too loose

That did it - thanks! I was a bit hesitant to give it a soft whacking... it's just so pretty.

Will report back with how it does in the grinding and subsequent brewing department. Thanks mania & oldnuc!
