DIY Hopper weight...


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I keep my hopper at the very minimum half full (I'm an optimistic  guy) for bean weight but I've always thought to myself "what do you do when have no more beans in the blend to top up"?? 

So I made a quick DIY weight, weighed at 150g and have tried to cover as much of the surface as poss 

I could even top up the weight as the beans decrease...

In theory, Is this effective or pointless? (Well, not pointless as I had fun making it)

you cannot imagine how much it gets to me because the colours are not symmetrical.

Once there are googly eyes on it, it will fix all that for you

I actually would've gone for colour symmetry but that would've meant smashing up my daughters creation for the right pieces...

Justifiable.

In all seriousness when I had a tube hopper conversion on a big old commercial machine a weight on the bed of beans made a world of difference to grind consistency. 

Coffee. Because sarcastic humour is wrong.

I sense the beginnings of a competition! Hubby won't be pleased if I go get the SJ Hopper out of the garage, nor will the mouse that's probably living in it now... Live mice as Hopper weight anyone? 

 

(** please not let potential future buyers the Hopper is safe from non-imaginary rodents!!)
