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.

Gave new life to an old machine and prevented a covid meltdown

My aging Virtuoso grinder has performed like a champ for many years. Then a stone in some coffee resulted in stripping the gears. Pandemic-related job cuts prevented me from buying the new Baratza grinder I’ve been wanting (Sette 30). Luckily, this inexpensive kit brought my old beast back to life and it’s working like a charm. Big thanks for the very detailed installation videos. When the job situation turns around, I can promise I’ll be ordering that new grinder from Eight Ounce!
