Cover back in place.  All the holes in the cover were countersunk so I replaced the round head screws which formerly secured the fork with flat heads.

Hi Jeremy,

I think it will be even better in a Mazzer since the diameter of the doser chamber is larger.  You will have to lose less of the funnel.

Hi Phil-

that is a real nice job. And an innovative way to fill the basket with no waste, no mess. Well thought out- I like it.

I was trying to find this post for the doser/doserless string which is now running. I tried the search engine with no luck, then it occured to me that I could search my old posts.

At any rate here it is.

Phil

Thanks for the input PJK. It must have taken some time to arrange. I like the idea there as I too am not keen on the doser. Its surprising that the idea has not been thought of by manufacturers.
Stujohn.
