Hey all,

I found someone selling a .5mm Gicleur for the linea. Was wondering if anyone have tried something like this before.

Incredible ...

Your espresso machine gicleur is exactly the same type of machined brass piece as a gas burner hob injector/nozzle churned out by automatic machines to the tune of a few thousands an hour and come in a great many shapes and sizes.

You just have to shop around and find the right one.
Then drill it to the size you want.

eg:

That's what I did with my Cimbali Junior D/1 and it cost me nothing because I had one left over from when I set up my range.

Actually those gas burner injectors are the same as the ones in an E61, not in a linea mini.

OP I do agree that the price is too high and that a readily available 0.6mm gicleur should suffice, but it's your money.
