hy guys,
i was just wondering if anyone had tried this,

to use the shower screen from the strietman for the olympia cremina?

i bought the ims baskets from strietman and after some filling they fit perfectly into my cremina.
so i thought why not try this with the shower screen. they are made very similar.

i looked it up in the forums and i just found that a lot of people use only the baskets for pavoni, cremina, etc.. but not the shower screen.
i know that there is a guy who makes shower screens for the 67' cremina(penny i think is his name).
just a curious thought.

greetings

The Strietman shower screen has a friction fit (no screw mount) and the ID varies from 47.5 to 48 mm on my spare, if that's close you could maybe adjust the sides to fit.

The group head cylinder inside my Cremina is 45.6mm broad. Hmm I think I can make it fit. Will keep you posted.
Thanks.
