Hi Brummie,

yeah that's always a cool idea to order some more, I can sell them or at least pay a little bit less for them if it's possible:) Anyone else want to join in?

The thing I need to know is the diameter of the hole on the espressoparts Mazzer chute replacement. Can anyone measure theirs?

Cheers,
dsc.

Hi

ok so I've talked to a couple of metal spinner again and they say I will have to have a steel base to spin the metal around. This basically means I need to make myself a 20kg element which is shaped like the part I want to produce, but instead of being hollow it's full. I'm not sure about the prices of steel in Poland, but I'm guessing the whole thing will cost around 20GBP to make (inc materials). Each spin piece will cost around 10GBP, so the best idea is to make at least 5 of them to split the cost of the base.

So who's on board?:)

Cheers,
dsc.

So, you're saying around 14 GBP, assuming we're doing 5 pieces? I'm inclined to go along :D

That one is a bit difficult to measure. I have to detach the funnel. Besides I can only give you the measurements for the Mazzer Mini. (I assume the Super Jolly has the same, but I'm not sure. I have to ask Aadje to do the measurements on the Supper J.

Maybe we should leave those and drill them ourselves (then we can use them on different machines

True... dsc, if you get your hole drilled for your M4, I'd like it done too ;)
Will there be a lid for the thing? :)

EDIT: By the way dsc, the front thing on the macap, is it glued to the body? I screwed the bolt out, but I couldn't get it off - didn't use any violence though...

Hi

yeah I was actually thinking whether to add the holes or not because without them you can easily use the funnel on any machine. I might add the main hole for the burr chamber, but those two smaller ones for bolts are probably going to be left out (or I might do them, it's pretty much your call).

This is my CAD drawing for the funnel:

Image

It's not final as I'm waiting for Cakey to measure the diameter of the doser and I will use the same diameter on the funnel (i'm guessing it's around 140mm).

Today one of the metal spinner contacted me and said that I can opt to use brass for the funnel and have it chromed later. What do you say to something like that?

We will have to take into consideration the costs of sending the steel base from the turner to the metal spinner and it will probably cost around 6-7 pounds because the damn base weights 20kg:O

Maybe we should make this topic a sticky? I mean Steve can make it a sticky I haven't got the power to do that:)

Cheers,
dsc.

EDIT: Ordo you have to get the bottom plate off and there's another screw holding the chute from the inside:)

As for the lid, if the diameter is going to be the same as for the doser we will be able to use the top from the doser as well. The question is where the hell can we get the doser tops from?:)
