So this arrived in the post this morning. Everything fitted perfectly. Based on nothing more than my rough measurements and some pictures.
@nicknak - thank you. It fits perfect and works a treat.

Anyine who is considering having some bits turned or made I would suggest contacting him as he is very competent and thorough.

Mate, they really do. As usual the photos don’t do them justice.

They make such a difference to the machine too, given my only criticism of the V is it’s not the best looking...

You should definitely seriously consider the wood upgrade for yours

It certainly is. You won’t get the look my L-R handles have without finding some top quality burr, preferably Thuya if you want the colour too but there are others.

Not quite a handle , but coffee related ..
Cant find the original thread so Putting it here ..
A Niche Portafilter stand for Mr @Planter .
Had a few goes ,with problems chucking due to no spare wood capacity so ended up with glueing it to another piece...

@NikNak - can you pls PM me an idea of cost for one of these pls? (A good one - not the tester )

Also a matching but shallower “bowl” that could act as a tamper stand. 58mm in each case.

Thinking that my coffee corner is looking a bit messy and these could improve things.

Just a few more handles in  Blackwood for another Vesuvius ..   It polished up a little like metal ..

The first picture shows them buffed up with a polishing mop.. No oil or finish what so ever .

I am going to look through my wood stock to see what exotics I can find 😎

I did have a quick play with some Olivewood , plain old Olive wood not the wild grain variety .. Took it roughly down to the round and put some oil on it to see what the grain was like .. and some Lacewood .
