    After repainting those brackets, descaling and replacing seals mine was as good as new.
    You simply put a thermometer in the boiler to know your brew temperature.
    To avoid sucking coffee grinds in the boiler when returning the lever you could put an aeropress paper filter on the coffee bed.
    A bowl is handy to flush the douche screen of empty the boiler when you're done as the tray underneath is really tiny.

    Thanks Jim.
    How come I get the feeling that this is quite a frantic guess... but it makes sense, somehow.

    You wearing these now? Where's the workshop tie gone to?
