Upgrade parts fit like a glove and work like a charm. Brought life back to a very good grinder.

worked great. baratza has amazing instructions for this upgrade on youtube and they'll send you a step by step pdf if you contact them.

it's a bit fiddly to keep all the parts organized but it's great to be able to repair the grinder myself!!

Great Kit

This Kit did the trick. Thanks to the Baratza Youtube video the installation went well. The bonus is that with this kit we were able to upgrade the Preciso by making it even better suited to espresso grind. All around, the service at Eight Ounce Coffee, the delivery and the kit made it a positive experience.

Simple upgrade

Quite simple to install using Baratza’s instruction videos. I had to replace the motor on my Preciso because the worm gear on it had worn spots. It may be something others doing an upgrade may want to examine. One draw back there was that while the motor was easy to install, it lacked wires so those from the old motor had to be salvaged and fitted with new L shaped female ends. Some swearing and crying when I lost the tiny clicker and broke the indexing ring. Eight Once shipped then out very quickly.
