I thought I'm going to "outsource" the final touches to my kit, and let you guys to add your ideas, criticism, thoughts, in order to get an even better and more useful kit.
I greatly appreciate every single comment, as it helps to match the taste of the wide range of end-users...
A friend has taken a sander to my Major and I am now trying to decide between stripping back to aluminium for a metal finish, or respraying (satin black would be my preferred choice).
Has anyone any guidance or recommendations for this? I do not want to have to remove coils/motors etc. I would...
Five of these arrived in the post today and I only need one.
The scales arrived too but that's just a coincidence.
I only need one.
The other ones I'll give away - if you guess what it is.????
edit: hint (not a good one) they're 40mm in diameter
I have had my LMLM for a year now and ever since day one been annoyed by the fact that the steam and water knobs tends to stick when tightened up in the closed position. They are basically designed like a nut on a bolt. So if you want to do a quick steam-off by turning the knob clockwise it will...
I got myself a Dedica and a second-hand 90's Gaggia MDF i could afford - basic as it is, it's a major step up from the Nespresso capsules.-
The MDF has about 12g of retention in the path, however, and some more in the dozer - and i didn't want to get yesterday's grind every...
Has anyone had, has or used one of these? If you have could you let me know your opinions on it?
Is anybody interested in mods I've done to my single group commercial coffee machine? I'm willing to share my system mod. principles, for discussion, but I don't know which section to post in? I think what I've done could be applied to many machines of a similar type?
Work on these coffee...
So there's just two more days until I pick up my Gaggia Classic! I'll be buying the Classic from a member on this forum who ironically also purchased it themselves from a well established member "GerryM" who appears to have done an amazing job on the Classic already installing Mr Shades...
has anyone figured out how to mod their mk2 or older for the same effect?
They look, from the outside, pretty similar / identical in the way the coffee is despensed so I am guessing there is some kind of voodery in the chute to stop clumping?
The clumping on mine is annoying when I go too...
£150 for the lot, collect from Stockwell, London. Thanks!
A few additional modifications:
- Rancilio Silvia wand. I will include the original wand in the purchase as well.
- Brass dispersion plate
- IMS Precision shower screen
- Stainless steel tamper
- Portofilter basket (can't remember...
After recently upgrading my grinder to a Fiorenzato F5 (From Iberital MC2) I'm looking at upgrading my Classic little by little. I cannot buy all mods in one go and am therefore looking to see which mods I should do first based on the impact I will feel after installing them.
maybe a slightly unusual question, but what kind of mods do people normally carry out on their Cherub?
From what I know its a really good machine so it would be interesting to know what people are missing features wise.
On a slightly separate subject, what's the usual servicing kit and...
Hi, I have an MDX that is stripped down for a good clean and thought it might be an opportunity to make it doserless if possible, has anyone done this? Any easy mods to make a chute or leave the doser container on with a funnel or similar so the grinds go straight into the portafilter? Any other...
MAZZER SUPER JOLLY TIMER GRINDER (badged as Astoria)
In good condition with no rattles or squeaks.
Brand new, authentic Mazzer burrs
have just been installed. Probably only 2kg of coffee run through them. A couple of marks to the paintwork as you would expect from a...
Ordered and received one of these new listings on Amazon (now down to £185). I can confirm it has the aluminium boiler, solenoid, metal spouted portafilter etc. Perfect crema baskets annoyingly, but that's not a huge issue.
Edit: NB - this post is about a newly purchased *2014* model, ordered...
Just been looking into two mods on the Classic 2015 model and from what I found it appears two may no longer be possible due to changes.
Those mods being the Rancillo steam wand replacement which it appears may no longer fit.
Then the second being the OPV mod due to it not being as adjustable...
Hi there everyone. Signed up last week, but hadn't gotten around to posting an introduction.
Having spent most of my formative years being exposed only to cheap instant coffee (thanks, dad!) and disliking it unless heavily laden with milk, I fell easily into the big milk drinks of chain cafe...
