  1. Not really though - looking at the completed listings, and it looks like the norm is about £80-90.
  2. That's a bit rich imo. Would have thought £70-£100. Probably a little less to a mate.
  3. Huh, I'd never have thought of using a time of flight sensor like that. Clever. I'd intended to use a float switch for a low water sensor, never really got around to it though.
  4. That doesn't make any sense to me - surely everything would reach the same temperature? I mean, sure, it's got *slightly* greater thermal mass, but the boiler is set to hit a given temperature, so everything's going to reach a very similar equilibrium temperature. That said, I guess the portafilter will be a little cooler by virtue of the fact that you have to wave it through the air more before introducing fresh grinds to it.
  5. It came out pretty clean (exactly as in my photo - I didn't clean it up or anything). But possibly puly cafe, the last thing I'd've done before storing it would have been to backflush it.
  6. Huh. Put it back together and it just worked.
  7. Ah, thanks. I took that apart and removed this bit. Still no flow, though.
  8. ... and pulling that valve apart gets me to this. I'm assuming that I should be able to push the middle bit in (I can't).
  9. I'm a bit out of my depth here, I'm taking this apart...
  10. How? It definitely *tries* to get water out of the group head. Occasionally I get the odd drop/steam.
  11. Trying to bleed by releasing this nut.
  12. It's probably the same buzzer as for the water tank, but it fills correctly - only get the beep for the program (volumetric control).
  13. Yes, the pump runs - or at least it sounds like it does. The program light flashes and then beeps.
  14. Hm, I did get water out of the connection on the top of the boiler - but I've tried repeating the process, and now I only get air.
