Just went through one yesterday and after cleaning years of old grounds the burrs didn't look bad.  Just wondering if others are leaving the small discharge chute flaps or removing them. They hold about 1 1/2 grams of the previous days grind. I left them in place but don't like the idea of old grounds mixing in with a new grind.

I took the small flexible flaps off and get a much more uniform grind ,plus I won't have a couple grams of stale grounds in my next grind.

Hi Mike,

They're de-chaffing plates: http://www.bunn.com/pdfs/manuals/27092.0001.pdf , page 22 part #13.
Do you have any problems with static now that they're removed?

Hi Craig,

I only did  a couple of test grinds to get the grinder set but it didn't seem to be a problem.

Been using it enough now to say , yes I get grounds collecting on the adjustment screw and around the discharge chutes.

That is a great grinder and a darn expensive one when new. It is a little large for home use but then we don't tend to go for the home stuff around here anyway!

While I know a little, Craig knows a lot and is very helpful when working with these grinders, he is a great resource around here and we are lucky to have him, listen to him :D

I ended up replacing mine with transparency film - it provides enough resistance to keep static down but retains less grounds.  Before the next days grind I just toss a half dozen or so beans in to purge the last bit out.
