Hi, Two bases, One Brass Curved, One Copper Flat for sale or exchange. Would exchange for a RB 58-58.4mm C ripple or C Flat or a 58mm levelling tool. Cosmetic marks from my knocking habit/ style. I have not polished as I feared taint, so have left them as used/ seen. If selling I am looking for £40 for the Copper and £35 for the Brass item, if shipped in the UK I will cover the shipping via Royal mail signed for.
Hi I've recently go my Gaggia Classic and so far I'm very happy with it. (Considering my level of experience (=0), the coffee is surprisingly drinkable already ) I was going to replace the steam wand with a Rancilio one. I got one from Drury, the top (cheaper) version (xr5600) on this page: http://www.shopdrury.com/product.asp?strParents=146&CAT_ID=148&P_ID=675 I'm following these instructions: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?p=11548518#post11548518 I've got the Gaggia wand off and the fixing nut off the old Gaggia wand (had to bend the Gaggia wand quite a bit). My problem is, I can slide the fixing nut onto the Rancilio wand, but it seems to be too tight and hits the little ridge at the top end of the wand (sorry don't know what this is called). (It seems the image shows really small in this post but you can click on it for the larger version) I can slide the Rancilio wand into the machine, but obviously the fixing nut won't tighten properly. I don't have any sanding paper, but I doubt it this much can be sanded off, or should even be sanded off at the ridge, as that is what needs to give resitance to the fixing nut. Has this happened to anyone else? Am I missing something? Any ideas? My first thought was that if the fixing nut has changed in size on the Gaggia (I have a new model -- also came with these pressurized baskets that were in a different thread here), I could simply get an old fixing nut replacement part (if I can!) but presumably the old nut won't fit the threading on the new machine. Thanks for any ideas!
