Topic: Rocky doserless on the near horizon (6 msgs / 124 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
My pre-decision fears have been confirmed. I hate the Rocky doser. Too many
grinds left after sweep for changing beans every pull, though great grind.
Far far superior to the Maestro for grinding ANY grind be it for ristretto
pull or vac or press! Considered the 'tape' mod but just got off the phone
with Jim @ 1st Line to discuss options. Upgrade to Mini or ? Found out they
are receiving the first 100 doserless Rockys, are due in January (was
December, got pushed back by Rancilio). So I'm returning the doser Rocky for
a doserless Rocky and will continue to limp along a bit longer with the
Maestro.

Mike,
     It is good to hear about the doserless Rocky coming available.  I 
am fairly happy with chute form that I put together on mine.  I took 
the complete doser off.  And I currently have a chute made from a piece 
of  half inch copper tubing.  The color is wrong so I have found a 
place that sells sheets of sterling silver of an adequate gauge so I 
can make one that looks good as well as function well.  Once I get the 
silver one done, I'll post the results for anyone out there that would 
like to see them.

      In Oklahoma City for now.
