Subject: Cory DEG -- Long Shot
Folks,
I recently won a Cory DEG off of fleabay. Got it apart and
preliminarily cleaned this weekend. All I've ran through it is rice
thus far. When cleaning the top burr assembly, I noticed it was a bit
dull. I took a measure of the bugger and found it to be right at 44mm
wide and about 11mm thick, with two diametrically opposed screws.
Anyone recently replaced burrs on a Cory? Know of any burrs that
might fit?

It's not a big deal now. I grind mostly for FP and Chemex and my
primary is still a Zass.

Wondering.

I had one, and thought it made more sense to sell it. But I thought
mine worked better than the cheapest burr grinder I ever owned, and
the Gaggia MM costs about $100 ... Someone with a Cory pot might
justify spending too much to improve one of these, especially if the
grinder hasn't been separated from its measuring cup.

I would bring the burrs to a tool and die maker. I think that they might be
able to set the burr on an indexing head and make them good as new.It might
also be a good idea to bring the whole machine to him and that way he can
toss an indicator on it to check if the machine is running true.

These guys are very clever.

I would not suggest the dremel tool as a viable option.

If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.

I am a locksmith by trade and when my key machine cutters dull, I get them
resharpened with no problem.

Maybe you find some kindly local T&D shop that would do this for a
reasonable price, but most would quote you a couple of hundred for this -
keep in mind that this is a grinder that even if it were new (aside from any
collectible value it may, which is not much either) is the equivalent of
maybe a $100 grinder. So does it pay to invest $200 to sharpen the burrs on
a grinder that will be worth maybe $100 when you're done?

It's possible to sharpen burrs but it's generally not cost effective - it's
only done for very large shop grinders where the burrs themselves are
expensive - otherwise it's cheaper to just buy new ones rather than sharpen
the old. But in your case you may not have any alternative (other than not
to use the grinder). The grinder manufacturers that resharpen must have jigs
set up to maintain angles - it would pay even less to do this on a one time
basis where you'd have to build a custom jig. Although someone skilled might
be able to freehand it with a dremel or somesuch and achieve a reasonable
result.

If you have an email for either of them, I'll drop them a note. Would
the webform work (I've never dealt with them)?

Thanks for the tip. If you have an email, send it to the profile
addy.

I gave you a link to a page which has a clearly written phone number
and a "Contact Us" link. Would it be too much to ask that you follow
those up yourself?

Contact Michael or Angelo at Espresso Parts Source. They sometimes
sell retail and have access to lots of burrs.

I don't doubt that they could get you burrs for every conceivable Italian
espresso grinder, but the Cory ain't one of those. Still worth an email ,
but don't hold your breath. Wierd stuff like this sometimes shows up as NOS
(new old stock) on ebay but it could be in six months or three years or
never.

I did some digging and the only machine that turned up with 44MM burrs
was an Baratza/Solis Virtuoso. So, I'll likely use it until I can't
anymore. Then, it's an artifact or the start of something else.


Thanks,

I did some digging and the only machine that turned up with 44MM burrs
was an infinity, IIRC. So, I'll likely use it until I can't anymore.

I believe the Infinity uses conical burrs which are of a totally different
design and could not possibly fit on a grinder designed for flat burrs.

I doubt you'll find replacement burrs w. 2 holes. Modern burrs tend to be 3
hole - if you could find the right diameter and thickness you might be able
to tap new holes in the burr carrier. But I dunno where you'd find quality
44mm burrs - espresso grinders (the type that would have good burrs to begin
with) usually start at around 50 mm.
