My grinder (a Sunbeam Cafe Series) sends coffee flying in all
directions due to static -- also, I think the exit-nozzle is slightly
too short for satisfactory use, in either doser or doserless mode.
If I were to extend the nozzle by say half an inch (about 2 cms), is
there a material I could use which could at the same time lessen the
static problem? I guess plastic tubing is a no-no for that reason --
would cardboard or aluminium lessen the problem?

From coffeesnobs:
" I didnt find it messy: if you extend the height of your PF by 15mm or so,
all the grinds will go straight in. Find something plastic [eg cut down a
yoghurt cup] so it sits just inside the basket and extends above] then you
can grind a full dose into the PF, then distribute and tamp all without
spilling a grain."

I like the drill-controller idea that drops the speed by half- will try it
myself!
