    Snobbers mods to EM0480 dispenser?!?!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    For all of you that have the Sunbeam EM0480, and have found it necessary to add something to the end of the dispenser to stop the grounds from flying everywhere including your face, have you attached anything or performed some sort of modification to prevent/correct this ?!

    I have been thinking of a suitably sized elbow joint of PVC pipe to force the grounds downwards for a much more refined stream. Havent done it yet, but would like to know what other options people have done or considered.

    Thanks,

    DrT

    DrT [so MrT went back for his post Grad!!!!]

    There are several long "Sunbeam" threads around that cover the elbow joint and PVC pipe extender methods.

    One of my personal mods was a cut down of one of those "bucket" scoops that come with baby-milk powder, it was a tight fit over spout and could be adjusted tso the drop would be in the centre of the PF.

    In the end, I opted for the following, as it was easy/cheap/neat and very effective, it allowed me to fully dose and distribute [WDT] into the PF without spilling a grain of coffee and left access to clean out the grinder chute.

    Good idea!

    I have seen the plastic (?) pipe you can buy from the hardware put over the em0480 spout. I like the idea of the pf attachment better I think. Off to find something to put there :)

    Ah yes, MrT did indeed get his PhD. I was going to call my username MrT but it somehow seemed a bit "Tacky". Not that the end result is any better I guess...

    Yep, several threads are around, however these do seem to be mostly on the yoghurt container mod whereas I want to leave the PF alone and fix the dispenser.

    The scoop suggestion is a good one - Ill add it to the list of potentials.

    Ta muchly.
