As I promised a full step-by-step from this post, here is my Mazzer mini-mouth mod.

All you need is a standard bartender's cocktail shaker, a Dremil, a butt-load of cutoff wheels and an hour or two. Here is a side by side of an undoctored shaker and the modded shaker:

Here is an "exploded parts view" of the sections that need to be removed. The top piece is the initial cut to begin the front curve. The side pieces are the second step to the curve. The bottom piece is the mounting bracket that will flex the shaker outward, it is mounted to the lower doser holes.

The doser opening cover is fashioned from some 0.010 stainless steel sheet. Thin enough to easily cut with a utility knife (key!).

One side of the mouth attached, note the flexing of the shaker. You need to really squeeze it into place to flex the shaker into position.

Both sides attached, but not fully tightened.
