Hi everyone, i will be getting my grinder checked out this week and might use it for home-use. I don't have the hopper for it anymore and don't want something tall..so i was thinking of seeing if i can bind some sort of pcv plumbing tubing to make a small hopper..you think this might work? will the tubing change the taste of the beans? any ideas?
thanks
fabs
btw..the grinder is an older bazzera grinder.

Yes to work and no to change taste
I did this for a MDX, I needed a lathe to make it happen as nothing fit the throat without being turned smaller.
