Regal Coffee Grinder

The Regal 505 blade coffee grinder (France) suits me perfect. I usually only "grind" enough beans for a couple of cups each morning. The 505 grinders last a long time. I purchased my first one at a thrift store for a few dollars.

The plastic case was cracked and eventually led to further cracking around the switch button, making it quit working. I broke the plastic away and soldered the switch off of an electric drill I had laying around onto it, duct taped the switch to the side and I'm still using the mill for nuts.

All of the locking tabs have broken off on top of the grinder so I have to hold the lid on...LOL. I like the fact that you can grind nuts with them. The motors are powerful little workhorses. I bought a newer 505 for my coffee. I'm also eventually going to purchase another one to store away.

I purchased a Hamilton Beach blade grinder (China) recently (before I bought my newer 505) and, luckily, it quit working right at 90 days. I returned it for a refund!!!

Just today I found a Waring 11CG10 burr grinder (Japan) at a thrift store for $3. I think I'll keep it for larger grinding jobs, even though it is a high speed type electric burr grinder. Naturally, you can't grind nuts with it though.

Remove blade
by: Anonymous

There's a slot in the bottom through which the bottom of the motor spindle is visible. There's a slot in it. Put a flat screwdriver through the slot in the bottom casing and engage with the slot in the bottom of the spindle. Hold it still while you unscrew the blade from the other end of the spindle. Reverse to reassemble.

I don't know how to remove the blade, but I have a user manual but there's nothing in it about that, just general usage and recipes.
