Good news. You do make the acc for Pro 800! I will keep this in mind.

The handles are not compatible with my new QM67 double boiler so I had Dave make steam and hot water knobs out of Figured Narra which is the same tree as the burl. I kept the portafilter. They are beautiful. Here are photos including my Narra Handle on a Reg Barber tamper and just for show, the Ironwood scales on a Wade and Butcher straight Razor.
Wow, the burl handle is especially beautiful. Even though it has been some decades since I smoked pipes, my brain recalled the aroma of toasted Cavendish pipe tobacco the moment I saw the photo. Interesting.

Cocobolo plug for the grinding neck of a Macap M7D coffee grinder. Goes inside the hopper neck so you can single dose coffee and have positive back pressure for the coffee feed into the burr set.

Dave, that's some nice work! Do you do LMLM handles by chance?

Dave made this for me in November for my bezzera strega. It took me ages to get down to changing them up, and even more effort to get the stock handles off because of damn threadlock.

But, ... they look beautiful. Thanks again Dave!
Your custom handle and knob nice... Btw what thermometer do you attach in cylinder? What for?

Had a request for some Decent Espresso DE1 machine handles but a request to match the floors in their kitchen. Did a compound stain with ebony to darken the grain and sanded off then gray stain hand rubbed to lighten it in spots to allow the brown/grain of the wood show through then a catalyzed satin urethane finish to seal it. Pretty close in my opinion.
