Tip for Installing Short Key

Recently, a customer emailed us with an easy tip for installing the short key when the spring auger is providing too much pressure to easily install with the flat of a screwdriver.

Required Tools: 2 crescent wrenches, the adjustment knob that comes with the mill


  1. Put 2 crescent wrenches in front of the spring auger (as depicted in photo)
  2. Spin on adjustment knob, depressing spring until there is enough room to drop short key into place
  3. Remove wrenches
  4. Take off adjustment knob
  5. Reinstall rotating grinding plate, washers, and adjustment knob as per the owner’s manual
