  4. I have been actually actually looking for the same thing. These are the ones I found: https://shop4fasteners.co.uk/fasteners/threaded-inserts/through-tapped-self-tapping-threaded-inserts-marine-grade-a4-stainless-steel.html https://www.theinsertcompany.com/steel_hex_drive_inserts_for_wood_headed.php
  5. 2 things. Did you refill the boiler i.e. press the brew button with the steam handle open and wait until you get only water coming through, no steam. You will need to do this everytime you use the steam hand to froth milk. If you have done this and you are still getting that much steam coming through then probably the thermostat is broken, you wired it wrong, or you accidentally switched the thermostats around
  6. I'll take them at asking price
  7. I will take the lot if still available Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. Would be interesting to see what comes out of this. I think it will all come down to price unfortunately.
  9. The mini Gaggia lever I own is a 58mm to be honest so it is not like machines on the 58mm range don't exist

  12. If I had to guess the machine was stored with water on the boiler and therefore you a scaled grouphead and a scaled steam valve. Flushing water through the steam valve may be enough although unlikely to solve the problem. You may find you need to dissasemble the boiler and the lower part of the boiler, the solenoid and the steam valve in citric acid.
  13. If you get no water through the brew group than you have a blockage somewhere in the path from the tank to the brew head. It isn't clear from you initial post whether you get water through the steam arm for which you can do the do the test mentioned above. If it passes the test then you can discard this as a problem. There are two other options either a blockage on the lower end of the boiler or more likely the little hole from the 3-way solenoid to the brew head is scaled up. If you remove the solenoid from the boiler and dissasemble the solenoid you should be able to blow air int
