Thank you MB and Azrich
My experience parallels yours.Thanks for the info on the Lido..
Yes, I had gushers first, had to grind finer and finer , Really fine.. I may be at the choking point as I had got pressure at 9 bar, even higher- finally there is resistance!!
Still not there yet with respect to a speckled or multi color cream
I need to practice but clearly I am much more in the ball park
Amazing what this metal tube device can do
Thank you again
