Conti Empress group seals not wide enough

Hi...thanks for your suggestions. I have tried a Cafelat (blue) gasket and it is a dribbler with the Empress and in a Prestina it became a dribbler too. Three other vintage Contis that I have had experience with have all needed a Conti-sized seal of 73x57.7x9mm dimensions and 2x0.8mm shims underneath the seal (with an aftermarket grouphandle). The shims are...

Upgrading Huky gas gauge

I recall a few threads where people tried, but dont know if there is a gold standard solution. "Automatic Logging of Gas & Air Flow" This one is more about air/fan logging, but Alan (Almico) mentions logging gas. "RTD, Air Pressure, Ambient Temps Upgrade Completed" One if the problems is that you need a high pressure gauge for the first...

New Jackrabbit Coffee Give-Away

Sounds great! How would you compare your "light" and "medium" levels to other roasters, US or Nordic, that we might be familiar with?

Can You Upgrade Grindmaster 800s with Ditting Burrs?

I've been searching for an answer for this forever, so if anyone could help, please do! I'm looking to do a "Bunnzilla" type mod for my Grindmaster 835 (I believe all of the 800 series have the same burrs except the 890). I'm hoping to fit them with the Ditting 804 Lab Sweet burrs, and potentially using that adapter ring....

Ultra little grinder?

Odyssey Espresso (Argos Lever prototype)

I took a gamble and decided to pre-order this. This will be first "real" machine. I have a Flair Neo and have been having a lot of fun with the manual method, but hoping that this gives me that enjoyment without some of the tedious steps (heating the brew-head, throwing out the water, repeating). I'm guessing I'll need to upgrade...
