  1. Oddly enough, my Acaia Lunar battery alarm came up whilst in the process of pulling some shots. I plugged a usb charger lead in and it continued to function. They’ve modded their firmware recently so that you can easily check the battery status and not get caught out.
  2. Good news indeed for all prospective purchasers.
  3. if you keep them well greased you’ll extend their lifespan. Mine are still going strong a year on with my LR. From personal use with both grease products, the Loxeal seems a little stickier than the Molykote. I grease the rings every few months or if I start to seeing any form of lever judder.
  4. Think you’ll find them here….. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MildredsCoffeeTowels?ref=profile_header
  5. When I entered duck duck for PTFE tape temp it came up as one of the hits. Used to RS data sheets. Also Loxeal since I use the grease I’ve checked on them too.
  6. Those links, I’ve seen before. Agree with your point above - and it’s one of the principles I use to live by.
  7. Just putting this out there as I’ve often thought about this - I know plumbers use PTFE tape on potable water installations. I just wondered whether it’s use has been scientifically proven to be food safe in applications approaching boiling point?
  8. Echoing TSK’s comments - if you let Reiss know you’re an L1 owner then your forum access should be sorted out. Regarding threadlock, I have read on the L forum of LOXEAL 55-03 being used on threaded joints.
  9. Read somewhere that you can listen for steam leaks using the inner card tube from a roll of kitchen paper. Out of curiosity, what thread sealer did you use on your fittings?
  10. Thanks for your explanation, we’re all entitled to our opinions. Coffee is such a subjective interest. 👍
  11. Out of curiosity, I’d be really interested to know what information you have found that supports the Caedo E37Z would be an upgrade to the Weber EG1 or whether the comment was just a turn of phrase 🤔
  12. Having a piece of wood with a slot in it stuck on top of a hot saturated group surely has the potential for splitting.
  13. Thank you for your help as always. It’s a shame there doesn’t appear to be an easy fix. Let’s hope @Taitcan work some magic. I have a custom activity stream set up, but in reality it’s no different from what I’m currently doing which is swinging by the classifieds every few days or so and nosing about. For me the experience has been diminished by the loss of notification, I know it sounds like a selfish narrow opinion, but I can only speak for me. Hoping things improve.
  14. The plot thickens. If the site is paying for software functionality and it doesn’t work, it certainly raises questions. It’s a major flaw if it doesn’t work. You mentioned in an earlier post on this thread ……”It's a good way to keep abreast of what's being advertised without the chance of missing it on the activity stream, or having to regularly check it.”
  15. I’ll keep an eye on the Classifieds for any new listings and let you know when the notification doesn’t come through.
  16. …. If I were a betting man, I’d say it doesn’t work - as I’ve tried this unfollow and re-follow tack on this thread before and no joy. I’m on a phone via a browser so not sure if that makes a difference. Certainly not on tapatalk. Hence me reaching out .
  17. @DavecUK - I have just unfollowed and then started to follow again, who knows 🤷🏻‍♂️
  18. Thanks @DavecUK, glad I didn’t misinterpret your original instructions when Classifieds were brought into being. I’m already doing as you instruct, but don’t get any Classifieds Archive notifications at all. As I mentioned in my earlier post today, all my other thread notifications work - this one doe not.
  19. Thank you @dfk41, probably in common with many others over the years, I used to follow the For Sale section. I thought I recalled incorrectly or otherwise @DavecUKmentioning that in order to continue following the new classifieds thread, the best way to do that was to follow Classifieds Archive. The ads get replicated there. Have I got the wrong end of the stick again? Is there no option to follow the Classifieds thread?
  20. Am I missing something? I find following the Classifieds Archive, does not give me any notification of Classified posts. Other topics I follow work just fine, do others experience this notifications hiccup?
  21. Agreed! Though OP was questioning it, the response posts should offer some points to explore.
  22. I have no Gaggia experience, but going back to first principles; If the Allen bolt sits proud in relation to the face of the shower screen, then the coin by that single high point may well depress the puck. With the shower screen removed, and upturned in your hand, is the hole countersunk? Does the corresponding Allen bolt appear to be designed for a countersunk hole? Insert the bolt and see how much it protrudes from the face of the screen. If it’s by more than a millimetre or two then that sounds a bit big. The coin placement suggestion above is also a good one to try. Since the basket has a declared dosage weight of 18g, it will also depend to some extent upon the density of your beans. Essentially, your looking for enough headspace between the top of the puck and the underside of the basket to allow for the coffee puck to expand as it gets wet.The arbitrary thickness of the coin gives that expansion room indication.
