    Help with Nemox Lux Replacement Hopper or Fix

    Hi All, I'm new to these forums. I picked up a silvia V1 and a nemox lux grinder last week second hand, which I'm in the process of sorting out the issues with it.

    Someone has managed to crack the bottom section of the grinder hopper as a result and it wobbles around when you are grinding. I can't see an easy way to an alternative way to fix it in place, but if someone has a suggestion I would appreciate it

    Perhaps a Lelit Hopper may fit? MC211:Lelit Bean Bowl
    Talk to Charlie at JetBlack Espresso and he may be able to help you out...

    The grinder looks identical to the one in the combo, so suggestion above is worth investigating.

    Cheers

    Most of the smaller Italian grinders share common parts, including the hopper. There are 2 different neck sizes though so make sure you get the right one. You should be able to use Isomac, Lelit and Iberital hoppers at least. I modded and upgraded a Nemox Lux once with an Iberital Challenge stepless adjustment knob and hopper. The hopper was quite a bit bigger though so you might be better off with a Lelit or Isomac one. Where are you based? If you're in Australia site sponsors Jetblack Espresso and Coffee Parts will be your best options. If you're in NZ try espresso.co.nz or one of the overseas websites like Cafe Parts or even eBay as they can often end up cheaper.

    Charlie confirmed that it is compatible.

    I am still wondering how this is meant to be mounted as there is a single screw into the rear of the top plastic grind adjustment gear set on an angle that has been used to fix the hopper in place. Is this original or has someone hacked it? It doesn't look very robust.

    The hopper doesn't need to be robustly mounted. Many are a snug fit and have a screw to locate. You could probably add another screw to stop the wobble and keep using it.

    Perhaps post a photo.

    Cheers

    Yes the original Nemox hopper is fixed in place with a single screw on an angle. I would fit the replacement and try it without the screw first as you might find that the fit is snug enough that it's not necessary.

    Never worried with anything other than the very snug fit itself.
    Didn't come loose during use...
