    Or, you could try searching the CS grinder section, which revealed this:http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1204007644

    Got my hands on one of these yesterday and then started reading posts regarding the mods needed. So out came the tool kit and I went to work. all went well except for the fact that the first time i used it i found that the original espresso setting on the unit is perfect for my machine!! I Tried the finer setting achieved by the mods but it would not let any water through during extraction.
    So mods were successful but not required :-[
