Dan - Did you consider putting another ball on the other end of the stick so that you could use it as sort of a handle, and it wouldn't matter what end you put in the funnel. The only downside would be that it would be able to roll.

I'm still in awe though!

***Smacks own forehead*** Well duh...the "stopper" is a tamper. Still, you found a nice tamper for that purpose. What size and where from Dan (if you don't mind)?

Thanks,

Joel

The doser is useless for my home-use, too.

Hi Dan

For those who've determined the doser to be entirely useless, your solution is great - very impressed :-)

Dan - In one word...In-freakin'-credible! I am really impressed with the stopper you have in place of the hopper as well. I agree. Put me on the list of potential customers for both the Hopper Stopper(tm) and the funnel.

Me too. How much do we have to pay you to make a self-install kit up and ship it out to your growing customer base... ?

Hi folks!
Look what I found in Milano at the Mazzer booth. I know that doesn't help you in your situation right now, but if anyone reading this topic is interested to buy a doserless Mazzer in the future - why not take this one:

Mazzer mini electronic
steepless micrometrical grinding adjustment
electronic device to select the dose
it grinds on demand
every dose of coffee is fresh
single and double dose with independent adjustment

(either with "push button panel operating device" or "filter holder operating device")

grinding blade speed: 1600 (60 Hz) or 1400 (50 Hz)
coffee bean container capacity: 0,6 kg (1,3 lbs)
dose adjustment: 4-19g (0,14 - 0,67 oz)
weight: 9 kg (20 lbs)


greetings
Joey

Johanna - I looked at that on the Mazzer website. It's really sweet. The only problem is that it is much bigger than the Mini, comparable in size to the Jolly, which makes it difficult to find room for in the home kitchen. If it was Mini size, I think your picture would have many of us here drooling into our keyboards!

Off topic, that was a really neat picture you posted the other day. Do you have it framed and hanging in your house? I would if I were you.

Milano huh? I'm green with envy!

Hi Joel!
Sorry to respeak - I swear it is a Mini! I have the flyers of all types here, too. Same size, same power, even 1kg less weight than the usual "Mini". It's called the "Mini-electronic".
It's the smallest they had at the booth, with and without doser. And the one with the doser with and without counter mechanism, and even with the built in tamper.
(Then there were the next bigger models:
Mazzer Major, Major with bagholder, Stark, Super Jolly, Superjolly with bagholder, Kony, Royal and Zar.)


But somebody told me that they don't sell all of the Mazzers in the US. Only 2 types are made for 110 volt.
I think there are ways to work that out, too. The CGs are very creative in this forum ;-)

See ya
Joey

PS.: LSM is still in the bucket, patiently waiting for me to assemble her... :-}

Here is the pic from the Mini you know, standing next to the Mini electric

...and the amazing, famous burrs. I also have the list of all the burr sizes for all kinds of grinders. (Mazzer makes burrs for almost every grinder like, Faema, Gaggia, LSM, Ditting, Cimbali, Rancilio,, etc...)...if anyone needs it..

I humbly stand corrected Joey. So it is the size of the Mini, well now I really am drooling into my keyboard. However, if Dan puts up his Mazzer conversion kit for sale, I'll have everything a guy could ask for (this week) ;o).

I've been thinking of changing the burrs on my La San Marco 95 to Mazzer burrs, but I've also been considering selling the 95, so I don't know for sure.

Thanks for the updates from Milano. Very cool.

Joel
