The thermosyphon is obvious as well as the brew path but I cannot make out the HX input into the cam cavity. I am sure I am staring at it and just not recognizing it. Anyone want to help educate me?
Most easily seen in the 3rd pic. The water path goes up thru 4 small holes (just above conical section of mushroom, you can see two in the x-sec). Into the "Nut" on the top, thru a small mesh filter, then down thru the gicleur, into the center cam area... I'll try to post another pic that makes it more clear tonight.
Regarding the Thermal FEA, I've got PTC's integrated module... We'll see if it's worth its salt (or price tag...)
