I am looking to buy a Vibiemme Domobar Junior HX but I have an issue with the placement of the steam wand. You see I basically only make Latte's so I steam milk quite frequently, but the thing is that the only place I can have my machine located has a wall to the left of the machine and since the Domo's steam wand is over there it's probably going to be an issue. It's not right now with my '04 Silvia since it has the wand on the right side. So I've been thinking and looking a lot at my friends Domo and I figure that it would be possible to simply switch around the steam wand an hot water spout + the internal piping. No? Has anyone ever done this on any machine? I know that the steam wand isn't symmetrical and therefore needs some bending, but I think I can deal with that (we have a metal fabrication shop at work). I was going to simply dismantle the wand and spout, bend the wand and switch and refit. Then open her up and measure out for new copper piping inside and replace with new pipes. But does anyone see any other issues in doing this?
Looking forward to hearing anyones thoughts
