This kit is for Pharos 1.0 FINE thread Manual Coffee Grinders only - check for the serial number on the bottom of your grinder, and check the axle top threading to be sure! These were hand made, in Idaho, and all were serial numbered. Video instructions on installation are available below, or on youtube.
If your grinder has plastic bolt covers, we recommend replacing them with aluminum bolt covers (sold separately).
Our earliest Pharos grinders had a coarse pitch thread at the top of the axle shaft - 1/2" x 13 TPI thread. Later version has FINE thread - 1/2" x 20 TPI thread. This threading is critical to match the threading on the handle and top cap.... We are a bit chagrined to not have records that tell us when we changed, or which grinders have which thread... The records of that, seem to be in Doug's head, and inaccessible through any means of data retrieval... So, the best thing to do is check your axle threading before you order - it's simple to do. We are currently making some replacement axle shafts for the coarse thread to solve this problem! We'll get them asap, and add a third kit for the coarse grinder thread upgrade. Sorry for the inconvenience!
PS...if you have the coarse thread, and received a kit with fine thread, please email me & we'll get it worked out for you!
