How do I make mine that shiny?

You could buy a lathe and accessories and some polishing mops etc etc .. I would be more than willing to do it for you .. I was experiments while waiting for some measurements and tried some polishing mops they came up a treat .. Feel a bit guilty I didn’t try it on yours .. You know my address if you want .

While waiting for oil to dry ...  I thought I’d try something for my La Pavoni .. Made with a bit of old window frame ..

Hi Nicknak,

Would it be alright to contact you about a full set of olive wood knobs and handles for a La Pav Stradaveri?

All of this stuff looks amazing!

Father Christmas been early in the form of @nicknak

 

The quality is stunning and fit perfect

 

The photos don’t do them justice - the grain comes through lovely in the flesh.

Glad you like them Kenny .. They are a challenge getting everything the same , angle right and the cut outs for the other bits to fit  into ..

Its really good to see them on the machine 😁 .. Thanks to @igm45 allowing me to keep hold of his original handle and toggle ..

Thanks Ian. That’s a V steam arm with a water spout at the end.

I have a rocket Giotto water wand ordered from BB which is shorter otherwise exactly the same.

I’m a plumbed in regular user of the hot water - I couldn’t get a mug under the original wand.

I found a few logs in one of the sheds and set about them with the chainsaw .. One was a piece of Yew and the other I think is from a Eucalyptus tree .. Had them over ten years ..428F3706-E8C5-47C8-9DCF-026EFF497432.thumb.jpeg.344f5284bd870948b1afc5e251047fb2.jpeg

Then had a play to see what they look like ..1B0492C3-C869-4B07-BA21-9FA938DE0F7A.thumb.jpeg.42389901beb23cc038beca2673e8fa11.jpeg

Sometime ago someone asked about Walnut Marzocco handle and then bought one ...I found someone walnut and had ago .. I think it’s a little  fat in the body but copied from a picture .. A nice shape though 😬

Always said the LM handles needed to be nicer. Especially when I had the LMLM. They were too plasticy and basic. That looks significantly better.

@Nicknak would you be able to make a portafilter stand similar to the niche one but without the hole in the bottom in either walnut or blackwood? If so, would you be kind enough to PM me with cost?
