  1. I was told by Paolo that it will be distributed via their network later.
  2. Maybe it would be better to wait and get it from a regional distributor if you don't feel comfortable.
  3. Why would I ask the producer of the LSM group? The group flexing has nothing to do with the group itself and very little with the bolts used. It has everything to do with the frame. How may of those commercial machines you speak of have you checked for group flex? My current machine (Salvatore Compact Spring Lever) has the Fiorentino group (granted not LSM) and, even when it had both springs in, there is no flexing anywhere, not in the front panel nor in the frame. But the frame is made of 5mm thick steel and is a fully connected box (pictures here: https://www.home-barista.com/levers/sal
  4. Well, the group is connected to the brew boiler with a copper pipe. If the group is moving and the boiler is not, how many twists or stretches can the copper pipe take?
  5. Flex is visible in The Systemic Kid's video as well. Looks less but it's there.
  6. A Mahlkonig dealer on another forum said that list is $2800 in the US but he'll be selling them for around $2300 or few hundred less than the Ek43.
  7. IF you need part numbers: http://www.partsguru.com/GaggiamodelFactory.html
  8. Could be difference in the burr sets (one crushes more vs the other slices more) or maybe the MC2 is misaligned and produces wider range of particles including more fines which choke your machine yet it also creates larger particles thus the more visible chaff.
  9. I might have missed it, but have you checked the alignment of your grinder? You might think you're at zero but have rubbing and wide gaps on the sides. I recently spent several hours re-aligning mine and it might be in my head but the coffee just tastes better. Keep in mind that every time you tighten any bolt the alignment changes so many small changes and checks seems to give better result at the end.
