Niche Pimpin’

Recommended Posts

Fancying the idea of grinding directly into the portafilter I asked @Nicknak if he'd make me a holder after seeing some of his work in another Niche thread.

I also asked if he’d do a funnel for the PF to prevent any spray from the Niche’s chute.

The work Nick did was 1st class. Quality workmanship and a lovely finish; and pleasure to deal with too.

Here are the results (the handle is of Nick’s doing too and it’s bloody lovely).

Arrrgh, I thought I had finished with upgrades, what a fool.

Hmmm, a kit including 4 feet, the platform and a PF holder would be an excellent thing, in Bocote to match the Vesuvius. Hmmmm.
