    My Duo-Measure also needs a hopper and drop tubes. I think adapting a different powder hopper to it might be the best answer so I can install a baffle that works. I'll work on that real soon, as I miss using this unit, even after only three times! It is by far more accurate than the Lyman 55, and I really like the small cylinder for my pistol loads.

    Lee or someone like that makes a funnel with interchangeable drop tubes that are not too far from what my ohaus duomeasure uses. Maybe you could adapt those drops tubes? They are red clear plastic....I'm at work now and cannot check to see what brand and how they fit...will try later.

    Nicely done o6Patient. If I had seen that a couple of years ago, I wouldn't have sold my DuoMeasure. It was really handy for developing pistol loads, then switching back to rifle. The cracked reservoir, and no factory replacement available, led me to sell it.

    Update as I see the thread has been resurrected: 06Patient's solution (post #20) is excellent and I would change my plastic Coke bottle in a second if I had such a container. (Now I have something to search for!) As for the Coke bottle, it works but is flimsy and should be replaced with a stiffer container. Other than this minor inconvenience, I find it to be an excellent and accurate powder measure.

    I replaced my broken hopper with a MEC powder bottle and an inline baffle that is permanently glued to the measure. You can see one at the far right of the picture.

    I've broken the powder hopper and drop tubes on my old Ohaus duo measure. While searching I found this post on another forum. I'll be trying this since this is my "go to" measure and I don't want to replace it.

    An almost Perfect for the Ohaus Is the Lee Red Powder Hopper. . One Turn on the Ohaus Lock screw sets it. If your Using with the Small valve No modification is Necessary. Set the drop Hole over the Powder Hole and Done. You can expand the Lee powder Hole By removing Plastic with a Blade. and Then suitable for Rifle or the Large Powder drop. There Cheap enough I bought 1 for each. Nothing else Needed
