Try this link (no photos there now though)

The instructions are broadly the same for your machine


Next one I do I will document and photograph.

This is a popular modification.

Thanks for the link.


The modification is very easy. 5 minutes max.


Removing the threaded nut from the Gaggia wand required flexing it a little so that the nut can be taken around the bend. The original washer remained in so did not need to use the replacement that I bought with it.


Not frothed milk with it yet, although the steam pressure is vastly more than what you get from the Gaggia wand.


I would advice on replacing the rubber thing though as obviously the wand gets very hot.
