Posted Thu May 3, 2012, 10:56pm Subject: Mazzer Mini - Remove Finger Guard
I got an older Mazzer Mini (the one with the on/off switch) and the doser is super-dirty - basically 10 years worth of coffee went through it and the previous owner never cleaned it.
I am trying to remove the screws holder the finger guard to the doser. In addition, the screws also hold the doser to the body. I attached a photo. Only way I can see removing these screws is with an allen type - Philips head? Anyone else have another idea? The finger guard is really preventing me from trying a regular screwdriver.
I use a short stubby screwdriver to remove the finger guard and group head screen. Perhaps, something like this would work Click Here (www.amazon.com) Mine is from Homedepot and it is now my dedicated espresso machine/grinder screwdriver. Allen type may work, but it would be too much work.
