Eureka Atom Specialty 75 ?

Not sure if it's the same exact motor, but they do share the same specs 800W - 1400RPM and same productivity 4.5-5.5 grams per second. I've noticed that the Olympus and Zenith are backordered in most shops and with the release of the ATOM Specialty 65 75 maybe they will be replaced by these.

An early Acaia Cinco

Good to know, Asaf. In the sea of adulation over Acacia stuff, very little actual tech has been brought forth, and it's nice when some finally is. It would be nice to have solid tech info like this along with load cell specs and such, when deciding whether it's worth the extra $200 over the Brewista II, for example. -Peter

I’m told to pour 7 second shots instead of 20?

The good thing about a 7 second shot is you can get 4 or 5 shots out of the same puck! A huge savings of not only time, but material costs.....

Londinium piston modification?

Beautiful work, Paul. Offhand, do you remember how far off center anyone's ever found the bosco piston? trying to get my brain around the amount of play needed in your wobby system. I presume up/down there is no play? It occurs to me that a 2nd ring could have easily been machined into the top... a 2nd teflon ring for additional centering help to force the piston into alignment. Anyone tried that?
