Thanks. So it doesn't smell? I might pick something like this up today on the way home.

There is a factory funnel mod under development, and the final design has been selected. The mod fits in the hopper and covers the two screws and adjacent slots. At present it's going from 3-D design stage to pre-production planning work. No specific completion date yet as there could be a snag in the process somewhere; should be a matter of months if all goes well. The funnel mod eliminates the need for a spring as the beans feed by gravity. First results are positive however it has not been extensively field tested.
