Gaggia Classic Pre Philips Heavily Modded (PID, OPV, IMS shower screen, Silvia, naked


Recommended Posts

Gaggia Classic Pre Philip - Heavily Modded (PID, OPV, IMS shower screen, Silvia Wand, bottomless PF, IMS double filter) - £200 ono inc postage

 

Machine was stripped and rebuilt and descaled this week I did notice that after the descale the steam wand may not be fully closing but this really is minimal when at steam temp and I assume with passing more water it would close fully again as it worked perfectly before.

 

This comes with a lot of extras to list for this so will do my best but everything you see is included.

 

  • Motta 58mm Tamper
  • 2 xGaggia portafilters
  • Bottomless portafilter
  • Backflushing blank filter
  • 2 x Original Gaggia double filter baskets
  • 1 X 21g filter Basket (Came with Bottomless unknow make)
  • 1 X IMS 12/18G Filter Basket
  • Original Steam Wand
  • Original Shower Screen
  • Original Double and Single Pressurised filters and creama device
  • Original Spare Pump
  • Original Classic "Spoon"

 

Now has a MrShades enclosure, cables tidied etc

Looks nice. Might want to add a price.

Most of these are wired without metal enclosures unless you buy the complete kit from MrShades at £94. (This actually was PID'ed before he made the complete full kit but does contain his thermocouple). I don't personally see the issue unless you pour water over the terminals ? Either way a cheap enclosure wouldn't offer much protection in that case either but for this price if anyone has issues can add the enclosure themselves to tidy it up.

Contacted @MrShades to see if I can purchase one of his project boxe's to make this safer to sell. If it's too costly i'll have to remove the PID and sell this with the original thermostats which is quiet a shame but I guess I was not aware how big of an issue it was running it like this. This machine has been run in this state without issue since 2015.

Can any of the moderators remove this thread it's no longer for sale. Will be listed again once I receive the housing from MrShades and will then be safer for sale. Thanks
Suggest when you relist it you add the price of the PID case. It'll still be great value.

Cheers had quite a few PM's awaiting to have this enclosure fitted, so hopefully it gets a nice home now. Almost a shame to sell now how tidy it looks. I regret not contacting MrShades before now it's the finishing touch this machine always deserved.

@RonanRaver I just kept this same thread rather than relist, the enclosure has now been fitted and machine is good to go. Just had a look at the valuations page looks like a bog standard classic not even a steam wand done, I think everyone here would agree that a modded classic and a stock just can't really be compared.

The PID totally changes the machine. Still no idea why they didn't put one on the 2018 reboot.
