Just cleaned my Santa Cruz Shredder the other day. Threads are like butter again and she doesn't bind up on the dense buds. Whether you want kief or not, soak it in alcohol (I used cheap vodka) and use a soft toothbrush.

I did the same thing

My kid told me to put a coin in the chamber that collects the weed it increases the amount of keif in the bottom tray

And it does!

Peace

Small micron screens that are used in grinders can "blind over" easily, looking as though they are clear, but upon closer inspection they have a sticky coating of broken trichomes and plant matter stuck to them that won't let much, if any, kief pass through.

 

Fresh or extremely sticky buds are the hardest to get kief from and they screw up the screen pretty quickly.

 

I frequently soak it in 91% iso alcohol for a couple minutes to melt the sticky off and clean the screen... turning the alcohol a slight amber color, so you know it's been cleaned.

Did you catch Rhinos demo for making hash out of Kief? (Naw test center page149)He works the bud through the screen of the grinder to get Kief. I finger rub it through and bong what's left over. Dry bud works the best.
