The good thing is that there are no obvious 'fines'...

As I recall, I obtained a larger quantity of very fine to fine grounds than I see in your photos (not easy photos to take, though). More grounds than 'fines' per se.

I won't be able to take a decent macro shot, so I won't pull my grinder apart again to reset the range and double-check. (I just had it apart for cleaning yesterday.)

Just to keep this in context:
Up to a medium grind, the Virtuoso grinds very well and very evenly. It is just that the usable range is compressed into the lower half of the available settings, with the upper half rapidly coarsening well beyond what you would expect.

Spoke with Reg James today - of EspressoTec.Com

Of over 150 virtuoso`s sold in 3-4 monthes, one has come back as 'defective' - the complaint was:

"It is NOT grinding coffee... any coffee..."

Long story short: The DC Motor was wired backwards and was pushing the coffee up and out of the hopper!
Well, not literally - but you get the idea!
