Looks stunning! Very impressive. Just missing the fins! Btw where is the thermometer attached ? Grouphead exterior?

Looks great. Love the stainless steel handles, they fit in with the look perfectly.

Personally I don't think there's a place on such a machine for a digital thermometer. I'm keen on a grouphead thermometer on my Mara but the only one around, (as far as I've found anyway), is the round plastic digital one which is so far from the look I'm after. Sorry if this offends.

Occasionally you see more magpie-friendly examples, e.g. https://www.geisinger.eu/gb/thermometer-for-e61-groud-heads/20-e61-temperature-sensor-stainless-steel.html

Thanks, the sensor is on the side of the group head, it is hidden behind the foil tape on the side.

Not sure I get what you mean, that is for a e-61 group head, you can get a group head thermometer for a La Pavoni.

I was replying to @DDoe's comment about wanting a grouphead thermometer for his Mara which isn't plastic. No comment on your La Pav, except to say it looks ace and personally I like the analogue/digital contrast :)

Thought he was saying he didn't want digital either but at least there's a half way option.

This is more like it but still not quite the look I'm after unfortunately. It's digital and I'd really like a more old fashioned looking analogue. However, I will bookmark it as I do quite like it.

Thank you.

Not keen on the bird but the rest is great.

 

Where are the handles and drip tray from?

Thank you.
Would something like this maybe work if you could get a sleeve milled to fit?

OMG it certainly would! This is now saved to my list.

Not 100% sure what the milled sleeve involves but there are a couple of DT techs at work I can talk to about it.

I looked at others that had a max working pressure of e.g. 6bar, does this mean they can't be used?

Thank you very much.

The handles I got from a guy on La Pavoni Owners Group on Facebook, the SS plates are from here, https://coffee-sensor.com, his name is Tudor, if you contact him on his Instant Messaging he will always answer, just tell him Mark Evans sent you and he will sort you out as I don't think they are on his site yet, I get nothing for referrals he is just one of life's gems that you come across every now again.
