Duty is handled federally and is independent of State. Where are you getting this information?

Worked for/on US market the last 18 years, and did some imports over time... NJ, if that matters.

Pulled the trigger for a new CT2 yesterday! Lead time is only 1 week currently, so super excited to try it out in the near future. I've been trying to scan this thread many pages back but any quality of life tips or quirks that a new owner should know about?

thanks for the recommendation! Is that screen similar in performance as the bplus version? I am using a bplus screen for my LMLM which massively improved cleanliness. The 30$ shipping fee for bplus makes me cringe though..

AD likes coffee sensor screen, I like bplus. Can't go wrong with either. Coffee sensor is easier to clean and the bplus is a bit more of a heat sink but with the design of piston/boiler it's not an issue since it balances temp easily during preinfusion. I believe the bplus works slightly better.

Congrats on new Strietman btw.

Coffee sensor screens are laser cut in Eastern Europe, from big mesh plates of three types, one of them being very close to bplus, ask the guy for details, he is responsive.

As Jay said, I really like this thin screen and I got the 58.5 for my other machine. I might buy the 49.5 soon to replace my lost screen.
