Hey Mitch,

Move carefully the arm/pointer to the other side/to the right side of the stopper pls (without removing it). You should reset it if it moves further to the right.

We've modded a lid for my CT-1 today. I will speak to Wouter about this. It would be more logical to produce these parts in the Netherlands.

After a few bumps in the road I'm happy to have finally joined the naked CT1 family. :) Never would have thought that I was routinely pulling shots that peaked at around 7 bar! 9 takes more effort than I would have guessed. Looking forward to more experimenting.

Very nice prototype. I may have a local metal shop do this for me, if you guys don't offer it for sale.

Nice! Excited for when they come out to get my heat retention back up a tad and my evaporation back down a tad. Hopefully with some slightly more rounded off corners on the final product.

Besides wanting a lid, the gauge has been pretty great! Fun to mess around with different pressures pulling shots. Been doing a lot of 6, a lot of 9, and a bit of profiling with numbers anywhere from 3 to 12 in the mix.

Great news Ryan. Enjoy!

Modded lids: I ordered 10 raw lids. Wouter will them deliver end of August. I hope we can make the cut in September.
