    Gino Rossi RR45 Hopper Mod

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I was looking for a shorter hopper for the Gino Rossi last week, as I have it under the overhead cupboards in the kitchen, and clearance is an issue. I considered chopping it down, but it has a lip at the top for the lid to fit onto. Looking at the shape, I noticed that it was tapered, and that the size in the middle was the same as the lip cutout, so I decided to go for it.

    I used a stanley knife steadied on a raised flat surface (baked bean tin) at the height I wanted, and rotated the hopper against the knife to create the *guiding line to cut on. Next I moved to a fine saw to chop it down, carefully. Finally *I used a bit of sandpaper to smooth the lip up again. The lid is a perfect fit, and I think it looks heaps better than all the homemade stuff out of tins, cups, etc.

    Here is a pic of the finished product.

    Gday. Like your work. Are you able to tell me the height of the grinder now? I was thinking of getting one but want to make sure it will fit under the bench.
