Try a canning funnel. The plastic ones are under $3. The metal ones, 
about $12. Mine fits handily in my portafilter. I grind into it, when it 
is in place, and then stir the grounds with a pointy thing (actually a 
wooden skewer) to break up clumps. See: http://images.google.ca/images?hl=en&q=canning+funnel&btnG=Search+Images&gbv=2vicki

Interesting uses for the funnel.  In my neck of the woods, those are called 
canning funnels.

I use an old aluminum canning funnel to load the Ice Bucket Roaster and a new SS to fill my mason jars with roasted beans.  Pick up the aluminum at a garage sale and the SS at an independent hardware store.

Did you also notice the use of a double boiler? He was steaming milk while 
pulling a shot.

Do you want to see a video of steaming while shot being pulled on Bricoletta
HX machine too? While not advised on most prosumer HX machines some can just
fine, gotta love 1900w heater! (Just did it for two back to back no waiting
inbetween a couple more Merlot Kenya Cappuccinos this morning, sorry Eddie.)
Can even make it a simulated Scace Thermofilter shot so you can verify
there's no shot temp fall off while steaming:-) 
PS Nothing against the Brute DB, a good machine and definitely easier to
pull desired shot temp than HX.

John,
    The bottom of an 8 ounce Food Lion yogurt container is 58mm. I cut =
the bottom out of one and it fits my pf just fine.

i forgot about that. i remember reading about using the dissecting needle
and yogurt container to prep for tamping.
but the funnel is so shiny and hypnotizing  .... ;- )

I received the grain hopper yesterday. Tried it last night and today. =
Advantages are:
1.It is shorter than the plastic hopper. I am now able to open the =
cabinet doors above the grinder.
2. It keeps the counter much cleaner. No thrown grinds to the left from =
the hopper.
3. It looks neater with a stainless steel top rather than a clear =
plastic top.
 Only disadvantage so far is he showed the tamper going through the =
lumen of the grain hopper. However, he was using the cheap plastic =
tamper that comes with an espresso machine. A Thor tamper will not pass =
through the lumen. Each are 58 mm. However that is easily solved for the =
first tamp I turn over my Thor and use the handle.
This new method has merit. My wife is pleased. Her counter is cleaner =
and she can access the cabinet. No extra work for me. If anything =
tamping is easier and more fool proof.
