    Thanks Frank

    Well spotted. Think the wand is the original. The wooden accents I made myself from some curtain rod holders!. You know what they say: necessity is the mother of invention. Still have the originals if I ever decide to move it on.
  2. Big thanks to Frank for sorting me out with my Lelit portafilter handle. After struggling with heat guns etc I gave up; to the rescue comes big Frank with his powerhouse of enormous ring spanner’s, Vices and elbow grease. Damsel in distress no more!!!!
  3. What’s wrong with a good faff about anyway?
  4. So; all I’ve succeeded in doing is damaging a lovely new plastic handle that I just fancied as a Walnut version; looked at the ‘only’ YouTube video where it unscrews wonderfully after a 100c heat attack, to now assume that the video had a ‘prop’ PF that was already loosened. The moral of the story is, never assume anything is easy and straightforward. Even with a huge vice and mole grips you would still have to be Eddie Hall to have a chance here; I’m not Eddie Hall. Sod the Walnut vanity; EDESIA; would you like a return??!!.

    Video upload

    Thank you will try,
  6. Ok people; trying to remove Lelit portafilter handle for my new Walnut replacement. Youtube makes it look easy peasy ; using heat gun I cannot nudge the thing to come off, only succeeding to melt the plastic. How’s it really done?
  7. Yes, consistently awful if we’re talking about the big three.
  8. Are you a bit mad??? with all that equipment and subsequent caffeine, it’s enough to make your heart pack it’s suitcase!!!!
  9. In bed by 10.30pm bloody fireworks/dog barking, off to make myself a hot chocolate yours Mrs Meldrew.
  10. Ok all time to post your best coffee and friend photos this Christmas 🎄 and New Year; both bring happiness and warmth..!!!
  11. Ok, got a video 1.9 mins long, want to upload it but it says max 7.8? There seems to be vidz on here longer than mine, so how do I go about this please. (Old school has been, still living in the land of typewriters, telex and phoneboxes)
