on the portafilter holder you should put painter's tape like cebseb did below. Over time scotch tape might leave unwanted residue.

LOL. Scotch tape did leave residue. Won't use it again. It did, however, protect from scratches.

I have one of these:

A little expensive for what it is but it's nice & solid & works well.

I know you guys were losing sleep over this so figure I will follow up. Ended up getting a Chinese thing from Ebay that looks a lot like the lww blind tumbler. It gets the job done, and the walls have enough slope that the monolith forks can hold it. It's a little fiddly but once you get used to it it works pretty well. I still think something like the Niche zero design would work just as well and be a little simpler. That Rhino cup above looks interesting I might get one one of these days.

Hi
Just wondering will this fit inside an Olympia maxim matic with a 54mm portafilter?

I don't think so. It's a fairly snug fit in an e61.

I looked on their website description and it said 52 mm, I wonder what area is that?

Believe it or not, something like this works perfectly.

Because of the shape, all you have to do is put the forks close enough together for it to rest at the spot on the tumbler you like. Basically the fork is "pinching" the tumbler.

I had mine about 2 inches below the flat "chute" and it actually created less static since the cup was further from the rest of the metal grinder body.

With RDT the grounds just fall in like a water fall... Then a couple hand puffs to finish it off.
I drink two shots before I drink two shots, then I drink two more....
