  1. Smart – I like the approach you've taken here, and very generous of you @Ilias to open-source it. I don't have a 3D printer or the confidence enough in knowing the variables to place an order for one from a print hub – so like @Mrboots2u I'd also be interested if anyone arranged for a few to be produced.
  2. I tilt the water tank outwards with my finger and pour into it with anything (often a 600ml glass server). I believe what you're thinking of is something like this: https://www.toolstation.com/laser-plastic-measuring-jug/p20428?store=E2&utm_source=googleshopping&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=googleshoppingfeed&gclid=CjwKCAiAudD_BRBXEiwAudakX5EypCwsLxLTHjVyD-QTi0lP4rMoPr9JsNJDJWCSjZ1pjbal8zgNvhoC6KwQAvD_BwE
  3. Chrome bit – It's drainage from the expansion valve/OPV. The noise – sounds very similar to a problem I had with the Vesuvius where something inside was just a fraction too close to one of the body panels and vibrated when the pump started. Take the top off and watch for anything (pipe, solenoid, cable tie... etc) touching the panels.

  5. @catpuccinoGood catch looks like they got scrubbed from the thread too, here we go: https://imgur.com/a/W00WWLe
  6. Buyer dropped out, threads been cleaned, back for sale. @dutchy101 I'd like to stick at 75 for now thanks.
  7. That's the process I went through too. But of a faff to stay mindful of it while grinding away, so the oring was an elegant enough solution.
  8. @JA92 Thanks for the offer but at the moment I'll stick to 60.

    As-new condition, used on a few trips alongside an aeropress, put around 1-2kg through it. It's great, but I don't need it anymore. These are over £100 after VAT added and stock can be hard to come by, I'd like £75 shipped. Comes in original box. Pictures to follow – but rest assured it's virtually as-new.
  10. Very good used condition with no notable marks on the base. A nice tight fit when used with VST/IMS baskets, and the shape of the base helps avoid suction of the puck. I've swapped to a Pullman tamper which fits my hand better but otherwise it's a perfect little tamper, very high quality and I'm begrudged to part with it. £60 shipped.
  11. As pictured. No notable marks on this despite heavy use, a really solid feeling funnel which has good weight (145g). These are ~£55 new with taxes and shipping, looking for £32.50 shipped.
  12. A common cause of slippage on these grinders is actually just the handle touching the adjustment dial from the force of turning it while grinding. What I've done is add the spare oring in the box (or any similar fitting) to the top of the stem to act as a shim and raise the handle that bit further away from the dial. I never had a problem again after this. https://www.instagram.com/p/CHntKe_hJVx/?igshid=16calwvo76i8n
