I'm putting together my doserless setup because I'm not super fond of the doser. Are you using the antistatic grid?
I'm definitely in to see your results! There's a seller on the 'Bay that has a doserless funnel that's ready to go, but it's about 4x times as much as what you're receiving.I'm also going doserless soon. I orderd this part: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281875106248?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2648&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
It seems like it will work well, I've seen people use those in 2-3 threads. I'll post about it when its done! (unless it doesn't work).

If you are going to run time based dosing you will need the screen to retain grounds in the throat.I'm putting together my doserless setup because I'm not super fond of the doser. Are you using the antistatic grid?
Well, I received my funnel but I'm not so sure about leaving some of the grinders internals uncovered...I will possibly try to make a cover of some sort. I now see that it's the same in the above link. I guess the guy didn't mind living with it like that.Here's a link that led me to the funnel on ebay:
Looks like a straight forward job, if I take my time hopefully it'll turn nice
You will also need the "electronic" model portafilter forks too as the normal ones will hold the portafilter too far away from the grinder body and funnel outlet.
Order a motor cover plate. It is a Mazzer part so you will need to source it from a Mazzer dealer. Motor cover plates came on electronic models and "grocery store" mass grind models (the one with the elephant's trunk spout)
I used a piece of cardboard and a tooth pick to cover the motor while I waited for my motor cover and new forks to arrive.
If you go up to post #9 you will see the full array of "bits" including the a-stat screen, portafilter forks, and the motor cover.Thank you very much for the info!! I didn't realize there was some shorter replacement forks available, I'll look into getting them as well
Actually there's not enough clearance to rest the portafilter on the forks. Maybe if I had a bottomless filter pf.You can use the original forks, you just need to rest the portafilter ON them instead of within them so that it sits further back.
I do not see an a-stat screen?
If you are planning on single dosing and brushing out after each grind no big but if you intend on feeding from a hopper the screen will make your time grinds more repeatable and accurate.
You can get or make a portafilter extension. You can see the two I have back in this thread at various posts. One is a cylinder shape the other a funnel shapeWell, I tried it this morning and ill have to see if I can improve the setup. I get grains falling on the side of the pf even though I hold it right down the opening of the funnel... For sure I can't just just lay the pf down on the base. I love the looks of it though, but hopefully I can make it cleaner, it was my goal to start with
