Apologies, I’ve not yet found the single basket but it does have 1 normal double baskets and 1 pressurised double baskets. 
 

If I come across the single basket obviously I will also include it.

I’ll leave this up for another couple of days then I may also put it on gumtree, assuring that’s not breaching any forum rules

Nice machine, fully sorted for someone. Just thinking, you might want to add a postage option at the buyers risk, should only cost about £8


all opinions are my own I have not received any free equipment or favours from suppliers

Thanks for the head up and a fair point. How do I edit the post? I’ve a lot different to when I used to be a little more active on here

If the edit option has gone on the first post then just do a new post in the thread below with confirmation of price and postage option ?

Ok I’ll open this up to postage at the buyers cost and risk. 
 

Obviously I’d make sure it was packed up the best I could. 
 

Thanks

Just for transparency @Bica60s has messaged me with a couple of questions. No negotiations or offer have been made.

Yes, just caught up with forum rules and just asked a question regarding the OPV adjustment but I'll repeat it here for the sale of transparency:

Why is this mod done when the pressure capability of a machine isn't necessarily what it ramps up to when dispensing a shot which I understood to be controlled by the grind/tamp  (eg, if a machine is capable of 15 Bar but generates only 9 bar at the grouphead before passing a shot....is there any need to regulate the OPV to 9 bar?).  This wasn't the exact wording but was what I was after, as I (or my wife at least) would want the higher pressures to be available for ese pod use in case we decide to use those as well.

That question might get a better response on a more appropriate sub forum, it'll certainly reach a wider audience.

Good point Junglebert.  Rather than waste everyone's time I'll do a little research myself and if I can't find the answer I'll post on the main forum then.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas 
 

Surely someone wants to part with their Christmas money ?

Judging by hubcaps reaction first offer was unreasonable. Have edited offer accordingly.

tbh It was not the offer, I was thinking more that a thank you for the heads up would have been nice.

but I was in a bit of a mood at the time, so no worries, I'll retract my sad reaction.

 

 

lol

Thanks for the offer. Sorry I’ll have decline as after doing some research I’ve decided against an aluminium boiler which I’m assuming the 2006 version has.

Yes it does. You will always see arguments for and against it I guess.

Very true. Lots of conflicting messages out there for a newbie!  What’s the state of the boiler on the one you’ve listed?
