Dismatling Zassenhaus

Postby inserttitle » Mon Nov 17, 2008 11:16 am

I have a fairly new Zassenhaus Santiago grinder. I want to dismantle it fully as it was damaged when I spilt a bottle of vinegar in the draw (don't ask how!).

I've taken out the four screws and removed the entire grinder assembly. I can remove the but from above the handle, but I cannot remove the handle etc.

I can't see anywhere to get a grip on the spindle so I can unscrew the handle.

Any idea how to do this?

Can't help you either, but a very warm welcome nonetheless! :D

I'll leave someone else to ask the ritual question.... ;)

Welcome to the madhouse! When I stripped a hand grinder, there was nothing to hold on either - I very carefully blocked the burrs with something (can't remember what, maybe a screwdriver?) and unscrewed the thing.

Thanks, Lukas, when you say "blocked the burrs" do you mean you put something between them? I'll carry on trying...

Done it. FYI, in the end I put a pair of pliers through the bean shoot door, grabbed the spindle and turned the handle. Came off fairly easily in the end, no visible damage.

Thanks for the help.
