Is that acrylic by any chance the same diameter as a dosing funnel I believe you turned for an HG-ONE? THNX
Spentpuck:

It is the same acrylic but probably not the same diameter. I have several different diameters and wall thicknesses that I have purchased for people and their different size PF baskets and the ones I used for trying to make the clear hopper. I tried 3 different sizes for it before I settled on the one in place now.

If this had a lid I would be interested in using a few. How much does it hold?

The plunger negates the necessity for a lid.

I bought an acrylic tube with 60 mm outer diameter and it fits the Major perfectly. Tamper base as lid :)
The original hopper with a capacity of 1.7 kg is too much when you only buys 250 grams of coffee weekly.

for single dosing it prevents popcorning. It also gives you access to the burrs after dosing. For someone who roasts twice a week, its a hopper with the correct scale. And I doubt beans will get caught in this hopper as easily as they do in stock hoppers.

That looks very good! And such luck that the tamper base fits on top, it looks custum made for the job.

Mads: What holds the tamper base in place? Are there ridges or grooves turned into it to allow the base to stay in place?

Thanks :) There's nothing specific that keeps it in place. But it's heavy enough not to drop any points during grinding or if I push grinder
