  1. @PottyMouthedBuddhist I sold mine, also modded, a few months back for £350. But it was only 6 months old and had transferable warranty. So I think £280-£300 would be about right. I sold with the dimmer in place. If you are worried about the buyer having issues with the dimmer from a safety perspective I would get them to sign a simple indemnity on collection. But, you may deter buyers by asking them to do so.
  2. I have been through more travel cups than I care to mention in search of “the one”. I want heat retention, I want a nice “lip to cup” feel and I want a lack of leakage, preferably none. I have yet to find one that ticks all these boxes. I currently juggle two. Keep cup thermal and a Kinto travel cup. The former ticks the first two boxes but leaks, through the lid. The latter offers heat for days and no leaks but drinking from it is not the best. If there is something out there that does all three, now that would be something... I did the frank green thing and found myself c
  3. @The Systemic Kid please close the thread, I’ve got other plans for the cups now 👍
  4. That option does not appear on my original post. I can edit my last comment though!
  5. I cannot see an edit function 🤷‍♂️😬
  6. @jaffro condition is good. It is ridged, if you are fussed about that sort of thing. Say £20 posted?
  7. Could probably part with an 18g VST if you like? Think I have the box and everything if you are interested?
  8. There is or was, no rust. It was bought new last summer.
  9. Just a had good look over it and there is nothing to see externally but I have just found these scratches on the inside where it looks like some screws were catching when pulling the drawer in and out. They are only visible if you pull the drawer completely out and are not visible in usual operation.
  10. I seem to have amassed way too many reusable takeaway cups and some have to go. They have all been used but are in pretty good condition. They will get a deep clean before posting. Price includes tracked delivery with Hermes. I don’t have any boxes I’m afraid. Frank Green - 10oz 295ml £10 Frank Green - 6oz 180ml £10 Keep Cup Glass - 12oz 340ml £8 Keep Cup Thermal - 12oz 340ml (bought at Christmas, used a handful of times) £13 Chilli cup - 230ml £8 Also selling a black knockout drawer. Bought last year for £80. In good condition. Weight 4.2kg 24cm w
  11. My recommendation, and I appreciate this is a smidge over your budget but take a look at the ACS Minima. The looks may take a bit of getting use to but it really is much prettier in real life. For the money, the performance is huge. Especially if you want a powerful steamer. You can easily be disappointed by the steaming power of some machines in the £1k bracket. The Minima is a beast in this respect. It isn’t perfect (but what is?). The negatives are minor for me. I went from a Mara X to this and have no regrets.
  12. When I started out I was driven by recipes. If I wasn’t hitting the numbers I’d be upset. Invariably, until you catch the bug, the equipment you have frustrates that goal. Recipes from roasters distracted me from the important things: how it tasted and how to adjust the variables to alter the taste. Who does a recipe actually benefit? For those starting out, they could find themselves doing what I did. For the more experienced, chances are they are ignoring your recipe as they have the required knowledge. To assist those starting out, maybe the best option is to give them a real clea
