    Tinted hoppers

    So, I have a compak E8 OD grinder with a large clear hopper. I was thinking of tinting it in some way, has anyone attempted it? Did it work out ok? What did you use?

    I was imagining using plastidip or something similar.

    Is the machine exposed to direct sunlight?

    Nightshades might be a good option. It's used for tinting tail lights.

    I think that settles that then!

    I just drape a fancy black tea towel over my hoppers, and it doubles up as a machine polishing rag when im done making a mess. Simples
