    Sorry for the delay in responding. I think I’ll have to skip on this for the time being as it adds up to beyond what I had budgeted for the scales. Cheers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks. How much do you think shipping would be to London? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    @cambosheff if the OP does not take them, would you accept an offer of £180 plus shipping? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. This is perfectly normal. When you zero the burrs, you’re not backing off enough, zero the burrs again and back off more. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thank you very much Lee, I really hope we can work it out - it’ll be coming to a good home for sure. I looked up courier prices, circa £35, so if you won’t be heading south and would be willing to allow the use of a courier, the transportation should be doable. Thanks, Khash.

  8. Thanks Lee, I am obviously keen on the grinder however it is way above what I should really be committing to my hobby given my particular circumstances and £1,500 was honestly pushing the envelope for me. That said, I have been aching for a grinder upgrade from my SJ and after much research and consulting people much more knowledgeable than I, it seems like an EK43 is the right match for me and where I want to take my coffee journey. How would you feel about splitting the difference between my offer of £1500 and your suggestion of £1600? I also have to ask if you’ll be making a trip anywhere towards the south at any point in the near future? The reason I ask is that my very very heavily pregnant wife is very scared of going to labour when I’m not around and the mere thought of it happening when I’m potentially away from north London by some 3-4 hours would absolutely terrify her. So every little would help and I hope this does not come across as me being rude. Thanks, Khash. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi, I presume it has the coffee burrs on it. If that is the case, would you be open to an offer of £1500? Thanks, Khash.
  10. Here you go. Total spent less than 50£. This does not include the cables, I had those lying around I may have to buy a heatsink for the SSR, which will be another 2-3£ Upgrade from a k-type thermocouple to a nice pt100 will also be extra if that’s what you want Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ha! I’ll post the updates here. I’m actually really pleasantly surprised at how well it seems to be working. Here is the world’s most boring extraction video; I couldn’t get the PID and the bottom of the portafilter in the frame because of all the loose wires, but you can see there’s no temperature fluctuation during the shot. https://imgur.com/gallery/74NyuLs I’m debating whether to spend 30£ or so on a good looking PT100 sensor that’ll give me at least one more decimal point of accuracy or whether I should just leave the K-type thermocouple and be happy with seeing no decimal points Anyway, I’ll be putting everything into a nice housing now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Ah cool, getting a cocktail shaker I guess! Thanks both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I have not made a post on the forum for a very long time, so here is goes... I recently got a beautifully modded La Pavoni Professional [email protected] . It already has just about every mod that the machine needs and Coffeechap was kind enough to bring it over for me a few weeks back. I loved this machine from the moment I saw it and have not had a sinker with it yet, despite being a complete Lever noob. Anyway, I figured the only thing left to do was to add a PID to it, so here we have the world’s most dangerous coffee machine: Yes, those are all bare connections on the wires and yes it’s all live mains voltage. I have been testing my wiring before I assemble the whole thing into its box. It’ll look good when it’s done but for now, I’m experimenting. I’ll pull a shot to see what happens to temperature in actual action, but so far the PID and the pressure stat are playing really nicely with each other, at least at 93 degrees (I had expected that the pressure stat to start interfering with the PID). I’ll keep this thread updated with progress, in case anyone is interested in how it’ll end up. Btw, I’d like to say that this forum and its members are lovely, everyone is out to help each other and it really is a community. I’ve spent a lot of time on kitchen knife forums and while it used to be good and community like, for the past 2-3 years it has turned into a viper pit where there’s almost zero useful content now and everyone is out to get everyone else on sales. Rant over. Pavoni rocks,@Coffeechap I’m very grateful that you entrusted your own machine to me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Looks great. What did you use as the ‘egg timer’? I like the look of it, I’ve been looking for something similar in steel as I wasn’t overly keen on a bright coloured plastic thing inside the doser Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
