Convert Bezzera Magica Vibratory Pump to Rotary Pump

Thanks John, I see that both you and Dan are suggesting a more conservative solution with outboarding the V-Pump. That may be the simplest solution apart from simply selling my machine and upgrading to Rotary Pump machine... -evan

Convert Bezzera Magica Vibratory Pump to Rotary Pump

(The machine case is capable of accommodating the bigger rotary pump) BUT in fact your solution may represent a simpler option overall. I

La Marzocco Linea Micra owner reviews

I second Bonanza, they have two locations that I know of. Godshot was another that I enjoyed. There was a post about a half year ago where someone from Berlin answered the same question with many suggestions. Wish I saw that before I was there over a year ago. Will search for it and post link here

High quality electric screwdriver recommendations?

That's my take too. It has a torque adjustment and a nice, bright light for the work area. Changing from pistol grip to straight line is done with a twisting motion.

High quality electric screwdriver recommendations?

Got a chance to play with the Dewalt. It is a nice fill-in tool between a regular screwdriver and a drill-driver. Just over 1ft.lb. of torque but release the trigger and it becomes a manual screwdriver with plenty of force.
