  1. SOLD RANCILIO SILVIA V3 with AUBER PID 2012 V3 Silvia in excellent condition, showing very light signs of use and been very well cared for with regular back flushing and descaling. I only ever used mineral water. This machine has the added extra of the Auber PID which is a massive help on a single boiler machine. Auber PID with pre infusion, control of the main boiler temp and steam temperature all of which are digitally adjustable. PID alone cost $245 + $10 for Blue display. To you and me £165 plus p+p OPV mod has been done to reduce brew pressure to 10 bar as well. Co
  2. Hello, I'm selling my Gaggia classic (2012) it's had the OPV Mod, Silvia Steam Wand, Auber PID with pre-infusion and it comes with IMS and mesh shower screen I only received this a couple of weeks ago, as I got it via my brother and I bought it from a forum member and you can see more pictures on this link here Some of this from the previous sales post (and I've used it a handful of times, with Waitrose Essential or Volvic water): It has been well looked after with regular backflush with Cafiza and has drunk Brita filtered water all of it's time with us. Additionally we have v
  3. As per forum rules, I am starting a new thread to indicate that I am now willing to split the lot listed here http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?26727-FOR-SALE-Gaggia-Evolution-Auber-PID-steam-wand-upgrade-%A390 since there was some interest in the PID alone. Since the PID is still embedded in the machine and the thermometer might be a little fiddly to get out, I suggest that anyone interested first agree a price here, I will then get to work with the spanner, and that no money changes hands until I have confirmed the PID is safely removed! I am willing to post the PID (£5
  4. I'm considering ordering an Auber PID kit for my Classic - looks like the obvious thing to do so that I at least have some idea what temperature I'm working with at the start of the extraction. There's a bells and whistles kit from Auber that offers pre-infusion, and I know the potential advantages of being able to pre-infuse the puck before hitting it with the full 9 bars. However, I'd like to canvas opinion on whether this feature of the Auber kit is actually worth the extra money. Anyone use one? I can't seem to find any information to tell me whether the Auber kit regulates the v
  5. I don't think anyone expert will gain much from this post, but people who are contemplating installing an Auber PID but don't have much confidence about it may find it helpful. It's at the cost of confessing my own very stupid mistakes, but hey. Some people on this forum have commented that the Auber instructions are very thorough. That is true, but they're not hugely readable or clear; people who habitually read technical manuals may disagree. I followed them as closely as I could and took my time. However, when I switched the machine on I fused the kitchen ring main. The power cable in
  6. Has anyone had experience of fitting Auber PID to Gaggia Classic. Was it worth the expense? Looking at the one that does brew & steam temp. How was delivery from U.S. Did you have to pay duty? I only drink milk based drinks. Have done opv mod & fitted rancillo steam wand, vst basket and Ascaso I mini grinder. Look forward to hearing about your experiences. Andy
  7. I was looking around at PID's for the Silvia and came across this website.http://www.plccenter.co.uk/Buy/AUBER...MENTS/SYL1512AI noticed this is the same model as the PIDs on the Auber site with the steam and pre infusion, just wanted to check if I'm on the right lines? If so, has anyone used the site before and what else do I need to buy to put a kit together? Cheers.
  8. First and most importantly, both Sadie and I agree that the coffee is even better than I was getting with the Gaggia, without veering wildy into the faintly ridiculous hyperbole encountered on other forums (I mention no names lest I be struck down by leaf rust). The flavour has more complexity and is very moreish, we had three rather than the usual two this morning. Guess some of the subtleties were being masked, why?, no idea. THE MACHINE ITSELF Feels really solidly made, far more so than the Gaggia Baby, mind you the Gaggia Classic feels reasuringly solid though less so than the Si
  9. I have a Gaggia Classic pre 2010 with an Auber PID installed. The following was happening before the thermal fuse blew: I have set my PID temperature to 100C, however the temp on the PID display would get stuck at for example 95C. When I then switch on the front button of the machine, let some water come through and switch it back OFF, the temperature on the PID would be much higher than 100C. After I turned the front switch OFF again, the temperature would drop back to the pre set 100C. it went like this for a few times, until it hit 200C on the PID which likely blew the thermal fus
  10. A while ago (OK, I started this project about 12 months ago) I decided that there were probably folk in the UK who owned Gaggia Classics and wanted to PID them but were probably a bit daunted by the task. Whilst you CAN purchase all of the parts on eBay, and buy cable and connectors and all of the tools required to make everything - I know (from doing it myself) that it all soon adds up and it's not simple. Many people don't really know what to buy, where to source it and don't already have the tools needed to make the wires up etc. - and are therefore swayed towards the only "complete k
