I'll update once the part arrives. There aren't any spare funnels in the US yet.

Just got an email Monday or Tuesday from Nuova Distribution that the funnel and chute are in. The total will be $382 :shock: , so I'll order the parts next week as my wife requested that I wait...

Here it is. I'm happy with it, but it does need to have the holes filled with some buttons and a pf fork now.

Does the funnel retain much grounds? Do you have to tap it alot to get them all out?

Looks good, I am still looking for a replacement doser on my MDX.

EDIT: that funnel was $382?!

Thanks!

No retention in the funnel due to the exit chute compacting the grinds and the exit tabs breaking them up The design does mean a few grams in the chute vs. the low retention of brushing the chute every time. I hated the awful doser but love the grind, so it was worth selling a machine to fund the funnel.
