Check PF is not a snowflake. It does butane torch to the rescue. Check out that glue/thread locker on those threads!

Sucks that you couldn't keep the original one intact...

Now show us the end result!

This inspired me, I'm now using the stock PF handle with the Rocket head attached. Best of both worlds in terms of fit and angle.

Just about all Portafilter handles are like that. Don't know the reason they are glued and tightened so extremely.

Hey all - my Micra just arrived :D (5 weeks after order for white). I'm away on business trip :cry: so it's sitting in my garage.

I had planned on putting a coating of ceramic on the machine before we used it both for cleanup easier and also to protect the paint and chrome.

Anyone have advice to the contrary?

How would you go about doing this? I have seen a few people do the same

We have used nano bond 9h ceramic on lots of stuff ( at our home - outside on stainless steel wine fridge and furniture it helps keep corrosion down and looks great. It also makes paint shine. I just wanted to make sure there was no reason to avoid It on this machine - obviously it can go on car hoods that get hot but sometimes it's what you don't know that gets you.

On page 98 @brianja mentioned ceramic coating his micra. Here's a link to the post: La Marzocco Linea Micra

Maybe he will chime in here with his experiences. I love ceramic coatings but I have only done it on vehicles and boat seats.

I like Gyeon Mohs Evo as a general ceramic coating. It is long lasting and looks great. Application is easy as well.

I haven't had any problems with longevity on the Micra. These coatings are meant to tolerate heat.

If I was concerned about any part it would be the cup warming tray that gets extra hot. For that, if a ceramic for paint doesn't hold up then I'd use a ceramic for wheels as they are meant to stand up to higher temperatures.

Has anyone any idea on descaling? I do my usual backflush every week or 2 but in the long run I guess there will be a scale build up. There's nothing in the manual about descaling and not much online for the micra.
