Just got the grinder, my question : Is the Hopper plate suppose to just sit there loosely? No way to tighten it? I would think the hopper plate would move all over the place when pushing food into it. Not much of a manual came with it either. Any tips on using this ?
My hopper plate fits over the top of the shaft as pictured below
And I've never had a problem with it. It may move a bit from left to right as you are working it, but it wasn't enough of a pain for me to think about. You could possibly form a type of gasket around the shaft with some aluminum foil and place the hopper over it. That might help to an extent.
