One more Classic Pressure gauge available.

Recommended Posts

The gauge is currently on its way to me. Once I'm done I shall forward it to @Rapha if he still requires it. If so, he can in turn forward it to you?

Hi, my Gaggia classic portafilter just has two holes in it and not a spout does this mean the gauge wouldn't fit mine?

Don't think it will do fella, any chance of posting a picture of your PF to confirm?

I got mine off, just used a screw driver as a leaver put it through the hole above the spout and turned, was a bit stiff but not too bad to get off


Enjoying espresso & filter

Hi, I'd love to borrow this some time. Only just heard of the OPV mod for the Classic. With me getting my first non manual grinder for Christmas, (Been on a Porlex for years. :)) an old Cunill Colombia that needed some work.

Thanks.

I've forwarded it on to @Rapha and I think there are one or two people waiting in line.

Apologies, I've been offline for a while. I didn't receive any updates to this thread for a while.

 

@brewski - I'm afraid not, it looks like your portafilter is of the fixed kind which does not allow you to screw off the spout which is required to attach the gauge.

 

As I understand it, the gauge should now be with @Rapha which should then be sent on to:

@RSDesigner

then @jmc007

 

@Rapha - can you provide an update - Thanks.

Hello, I'm diving into an old thread but it looks like the queue isn't too bad for this one. Could I please go on the list? How does it work - do I pay postage to the last person or do I pay to send it to the next person? Sorry.. #newbie

Wow, the cyclists of this land will all be making really good espresso. Hopefully it'll make us faster, eh..?

 

Whoah.. something autocorrected my post to say "expresso"!

Thank you @Rapha, gauge received. I have adjusted my OVP and on testing once pressure builds it increases to around 8 bar reasonably quickly but the last bar of pressure is far slower to build, have I over cooked the adjustment? Also my shots were taking around 25 seconds but now take way longer (not timed but I would guess around 40 seconds), is it normal after adjustment to have to adjust the grind to a considerably courser setting?

It works for Glenn (forum owner)! Clearly being a coffee expert makes you ride faster, which is why my training involves sitting on the sofa with a decent coffee! There are quite a few on here who know the difference between a Pinnarello and a panarello!

I found the pressure build was slower to build up to the last 1 or 2 bar, but not considerably slower.

 

I had to adjust my grind after the OPV adjustment.
