Calibrating the Adjustment Dial

  • You would need to either loosing or tightening the knurled thumb nut or the adjustment dial to perform calibrating the grinder. 
  • The numbers on the dial are designed for counting how many steps you’ve turned and therefore the starting point is not necessary to be at #0.
  • It is common for the starting point of the adjustment dial to be around two or more clicks away due to the strength level of securing the knurled thumb nut.

Instructions
