This week's installment of 'do I have nothing better to do with my time' features changing the steam taps for joysticks.

 

Got the parts from Chris Coffee and it was an easy change using the adaptors they sell alongside the assemblies.

@RikA  It was as I said, change the adapter.  He had difficulty undoing the existing adapter (very tight) but did change them and they are now fitted.

As @El carajillo mentioned, the larger adaptors were extremely tightly screwed, but in the end I managed to remove them and install both joysticks: For those wanting to proceed with somethi

Great - thanks, I have ordered a set. I've seen a few suppliers listed, but the price shipped to the UK for both steam and water valves seemed up about £200. From drtradingshop, it's closer to £120 de

I almost kissed him when he came through reception....it cost quite a lot but if it keeps an upgrade at bay it's worth it (maybe). Really happy with the machine now.

The arm articulates really nicely, quite a bit better than the stock one i think

It must be like using a new machine - it looks like a completely different machine to the brewtus you were using 2 weeks ago!

That's it for now...not sure there is anything else to upgrade! It's got sound deadening on the inside, powder coating, joysticks, IMS shower screen....maybe the handles but i quite like the black with the rest of the machine

 

The joysticks fit Rockets too btw....

Does the sound deadening make much difference? Was it worth doing the mod?
