  1. Have a Gaggia Classic wand conversion. New & unused £9.00 incl postage I recently paid £11.95 including postage (Invoice available) Rancilio Silvia (version 1/2) Easy changeover from a Panarello,usually supplied with a Classic. Vastly improves steam quality. Simple mod to do with many YouTube videos to assist. Not so easy with a 2015+ Classic as you need to fully take off the casing but can be done with care
  2. Hello all, As per the title, I have a Gaggia Classic for sale. This weekend i've replaced the boiler & group head seals, descaled, fitted a brand new Rancilio Silvia steam wand & set the OPV to 10 bar - it's ready to go! The machine is in very good condition - it's a pre-Phillips model so it benefits from the larger, more reliable solenoid that is less prone to blocking. Couple of minor imperfections - the cup warmer has been dented - i've flattened it out to the best of my ability but if you're using it to store cups/coffee equipment then it's no bother - also, the decompression tube has a split in - both of these imperfections don't affect the machine and undoubtedly the parts could be picked up on here/eBay for very low prices. Included is: Gaggia Classic Power cable Portafilter with single & double baskets I'm looking for £145 - can post for £12.50 Collection welcomed from Oxford, OX1. I will be travelling to Bristol on the evening of Thursday 14th May and returning to Oxford the next day therefore I could deliver along the way (I would want a deposit for this).
  3. I recently bought a 2nd hand 3 yo gaggia classic from eBay and it arrived today in mint condition, I read loads of reviews before I purchased one, and also about the rancilio wand and how it's better than the wand that comes with the classic, however I watched a video on YouTube and the process on how to remove old wand and attach the rancilio wand, im having great massive difficulty removing the bolt from the original gaggia wand, the wand does not bend like people say, I even brought it into work to let my colleagues have a go and no one could budge it! Even if I did magically remove it the rancilio wand looks like it has similar curves, I need help, what do I do? How do I remove this bolt? How do people do this in 15 mins? #epicfail
  4. So I've just got myself a second hand Classic, model 18161/40, and managed to pull my first shot - yay! However, I've not been able to create any foam with the Rancilio steam wand and now I've run out of milk. The milk warms up but stays the same consistency. I was using cold semi-skimmed and probably had about half a pint in the frothing jug. Anyway I'm off to get some more milk and look for another tutorial on Youtube but any pointers welcome.
  5. 2005 Gaggia Classic for sale. The machine had a complete strip down. The boiler received an internal inspection and manual descaled with a dremel rotory brass brush. I replaced the original OPV with an old style larger, brass OPV. These tend to be more durable and have a larger outlet, so less chance of blocking. OPV has been adjusted to 10bar. All high pressure seals were replaced with new silicone ones and the group seal and shower screen are brand new. The boiler bolts have been upgraded to stainless steel for easy removal next time. Finished off with a Rancilio steam wand. More photos available on request and inspections in London are more than welcome. I am very close to Notting Hill Gate tube station. Considering the other Classics currently advertised, this one is priced to match at £100.
  6. Evening all I've been cleaning my Classic and removed the Rancilio mod to give it a wipe. When I went to put it back the rubber ring seemed to snap - I imagine it was quite brittle. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement ring (apparently called a single holed nipple...?) If my description is poor, here's a link with a picture of what I'm after - the black ring at the bottom of the picture. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pre-Modified-Rancilio-Silvia-V1-V2-Steam-Wand-Arm-For-Your-Gaggia-/271579058690?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3f3b5f9202 Thanks!
  7. Hello fellow coffee drinkers, Just subscribed to this forum. I found out about it when I read the comment on this youtube video. I would be interested in the comments on this vid, but I can't find a thread about the vid. Frothing the milk is something I'm still struggling with. I saw a lot of members owning a Gaggia, which makes this forum more unique I think. I've a Gaggia classic and a Gaggia MDF and I like both of them. I modded the steam wand though (Rancilio wand). Cheers, Gert-Jan
