  1. Before was set on 13-14 bar. Not sure exactly because my guage is maximum 12.5 bar. Good to know that flow not changing. πŸ‘πŸ» I think I see difference in single shot now, it is more foam then before.
  2. Today I changed opv to 9.5 bars.. I created video before and after upgrade, but there are not visible changes on eye... Is that good? I thought that coffee will flows slower then before, and that I will have to change grinder to coarser, but that not happened. It seems that flow is same like before, and grind settings stay same on my tests. Tell me is that good? Difference in coffee taste not found yet, but later maybe will.
  3. It is again digital messaured for more precise dimensions. Maybe someone can confirm me that thread exist in Europe.
  4. If I want buy parts for install Rancilio V3 wand. I need 3 nuts, tube, and holder? Like in Ferrary Espresso. Someone know which sizes of nuts thread I need? Maybe I can find it in local store.
  5. Yeah, it seems we understand each other now 😏 It was so close that I almost order it😱 Thank you! Michael87. I can made good foam now, but I hope with more holes try to get better foam. Is there possible create foam like in caffee bar? I mean foam which is strong attached to the milk, when pushed foam with spoon it is not separate, and it looks greasy, more like yogurt then milk! And heavy?
  6. Which nut? I watched video installing wand and I saw that on old gaggia exist nut on the middle of pipe (if we talking of the middle of pipe), but on my Classic Pro on middle there is no nut - the one pipe go in other pipe and there is a buckle which hold in it together (see picture). There is no thread. I have nut on the end of pipe (on solenoid valve). If you mean that, thats mean I need buy full size of pipe, but on my link which I send you is only half of pipe on Ebay.
  7. Are you sure that Rancilio wand V2 goes to Classic Pro? On my wand not exist big nut in the middle of pipe like on v2 version. πŸ™„πŸ€” I want buy this from ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rancilio-Silvia-V1-V2-Steam-Wand-With-Additional-3-Hole-Tip/281622894975?hash=item419208597f:g:kvAAAOSwOqBbTeWS Or I must find whole pipe?
  8. So what? He want just help.. I see. I assume that thermostat get temperature on his screw, can I get more precisely messaure if set sensor wire around that screw?
  9. Oh now understand. No too much help of this sensor.. And PID holding water stable. So I assume that temp. can be adjusted by myself? And what about steaming wth PID, is there just need to adjust higher temp. then brew? How do I know that I not distroy a boiler with set overheat temp. with PID?
  10. Because I bought a new one (155c), which must replace it. Instead counting a seconds, Temp. sensore will be more useful, right? And hope it will working to show temp. from outside of boiler. Not matter is it accurate, just consistency every time.
  11. I got big crema ! πŸ˜ƒ Now. It seems that for PID must remove out thermostat. I don't want that. But, I want only see boiler temperature (for steaming and brew water, right?). Can I do that without removing thermostat (or any parts) out, like only put sensor from side of boiler to show me temperature? Temp. sensor
  12. Why is that BSP 1/16, when is Gaggia Europe model from Italy? πŸ€”
  13. I was happy today to recieve a new coffee beans! And hoping to test it, I click the button on my GCP and power light won't stay on!!😱 Same problem. But I must drink coffee 😱 Can I awoid that by hold button in place with stick or plastic, would be that burn the house? what can I do?
  14. Yes, sorry. I was figured out later.. I can't belive it that don't exist anywhere on the Earth a "male" BSP 1/16 thread!! How is that possible? 😲 There is a one page where can built own custom fitting: https://www.adaptall.com/products/Build-Your-Own-Fitting-Summary.php I don't know is that expencive a lot?
  15. I searched adapters and find this, why not install M10 tip? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Fitting-Pipe-BSPP-BSP-1-16-Female-to-Metric-M10-M10X1-Male-Gauge-Adapter-P-70-/201797342328 And tip M10: https://www.bluestarcoffee.eu/ascaso-barista-steam-nozzle-m10-6628-p.asp Look my attached diagram please.
  16. Hi. On this channel you can follow my videos about Gaggia Classic Pro and Graef CM900. https://youtu.be/wnABUMAuMAY πŸ™‚
  17. Yes, I working with weight. So, 36g. in real can be double, and 18g. can ne single. That I want to know πŸ‘πŸ» No. I use double just for Dailing-in with grinder to set my expresso, or use when making one for myself and one from someone in the house. Not throwing away. When you order double expresso outside, how much ml you get in cup, aprox?
  18. Hi. As title says, I am a little conffused what is difference in single/double shot of expresso when Dail in and how to serve it to my guest. a) First, If I Dail-in double basket shot 18.g.-in, 36g.-out in 20-30 second, that will be double expresso. But Definition of Double shot is 60ml. If someone want Double expresso I must give him 60ml? So, it will be extended shot and not will be 1:2? b) Second, what is single then? 36ml to me is too strong (after dail in from double basket), so I use half of that - 18 ml, can be that single shot or must be 30 for single shot? (talking about
  19. On v1/v2 the highest tip which exist is with 3 holes?
  20. 1) is the outside tube of wand bigger of new V3 or not? In diameter. 2) Don't like the tip which come with V2 (have angles). Can I use on V2 nice shaped tips (like in new model) and with more holes?
  21. All time I talking about 6, but I want cut it to 9 bars! Like others do. It is mistake, sorry. But this is not change what you said about don't cut.πŸ‘πŸ»
  22. Thank you man for your time, I really appreciate that. After you ask me that, yes, I was searched for RC upgrade and I saw that is not that difficult to change (not need distroy half of machine). Tell me is the Rancillo Silvia V3 good choice? I found many steam Tips for buy. But, maybe will need istall kit with that wand? I saw one post that someone must drill extension (adapter) thread for older Gaggia machine😯.
  23. Ok. I only know that new model have 13-14 bars. Not 18. https://youtu.be/qnaTAbPR_0k https://youtu.be/zVHz18CLqoI I will return and change it to set of 3 springs.
  24. O hi, I think it is your sale page. At first, Because I don't need all 3 springs.. Second: what if not that 6.5 bar like it is described? Third: so I buyed two, one for reserve if I overcut first. Fourth: At the end, it is cheaper then Set of 3 springs. You are right, if I cut I will not have original hard edge of spring. I don't know is that important, but some peoples on YT made it. Also, the ordered springs do not have cca 11 circles, they have only cca 7. It is not like original! Because of that will be hard to cut and find 6 bar (original easier to cut).
  25. Look now. I bought Lavazza Super Crema, 17g. in, 34. out for 29 seconds. Is that ok for pressure 13 bars? 🀭 I bought pressure guage and 2x12 bar spring which I will try cutt it down to 6 bar. Also, good news that my grinder is adjustable (removing 2 screws inside and turn wheel for finer/coarser), which will give me more space to improvise.
