Has anybody used these on a pre-millennium La Pavoni? I ordered them and they seem too large for the stock Pavoni basket on my '84 machine. They will not sit deep enough in the basket to clear the shower screen.

I have the IMS B582TH22 baset on order - has anyone used this screen with that basket?

Yes, it works great in that IMS basket I use it everyday with my Cremina. Also the group screen & piston stay incredibly clean.

Does anyone know where to get this (the 58.5) in Europe?

Did it work with your IMS basket? I'm contemplating buying the same for my pre-mil La Pavoni as well.

Yes, it works with both the B582TH22 IMS basket and the IMS/Streitman Super Fine Mesh Filter Basket (which has become my primary basket). So far it's working well to prevent the indentation/channeling from the water entering the chamber at boiler pressure, and keeping things clean.

Oh yes it should work on any decent 49mm filterbasket. I've got to find one where it doesn't fit.

Has anyone used the 49.7 in an Elktra MCaL?

I haven't tried the MCaL basket

Maybe unrelated but this size screen also works as a bottom mesh for a kalita 185 dripper - not a perfect fit but something to play with

I have a 1973 Europiccola, and use the Streitman puck screen with the Streitman IMS Competition with the superfine mesh

You grind smaller, I'm on 3 on my Niche, and you get a fully body imo, depending on bean etc etc. I get 33g gramme out 13g in dependant on how much I can be bothered with Fellini. I can get 28g out which is fine with a spongy pull no Fellini.

They are very good products . I don't use any mods on my 1973 as just like the experience of brewing with it all , I've down the whole nodding thing with other Europiccolas and fish the 1973 gen 1 the best unmodded, but with the added benefit of the improved engineering in that basket and puck screen .
