Hacking the DF64 exit chute

This thread is still very relevant with the June batch through Espresso Outlet. Though there have apparently been some improvements made to the upper burr carrier, the declumper and chute are seemingly unchanged. I have not seen changes to either of those reported in other markets

$1500ish budget for new or used semiautomatic

If you're set on a used, E61-style machine, I'd keep your eyes open for a double boiler or a Lelit Mara X -- it is basically the only HX machine that I can recommend considering new these days.

Boiler and Coffee Cup Heaters on Monza 5010 not heating

Thanks for the info John. Somebody told me that the numbers 1 through 6 on the touchpad diagram in Chris' Coffee Service Owner's manual represent the numbers for the password.

$1500ish budget for new or used semiautomatic

OE Lido 1 - Help!

It's just a jar. A particular size with a lid that has a certain threading. I bought a compatible jar for my LIDO 1 as a backup in case I broke the original. I don't have the details at hand and I'm traveling. But since you need to replace the lid too I think that gives you some leeway in

Popular Knock Box?

On mine you have to use the center of the basket because if you tried to use the neck, about 1/4 to 1/3 of the puck would be over the outer edge of the tub. I still don't know why I'm not having grinds fly all over my kitchen but so far (knock on ... well the knock box!!)
