Hi Jim,

Still enjoying my Bianca. Even after lubricating my cam and lower valve assembly (twice), I still have a "catch" when moving my lever up, like something is binding in the upper valve. I haven't disassembled that one since it's more involved with the needle valve attached, etc. How should I proceed?

Also, wanting to move into plumbing the machine in. I should give you a call, right?

Lastly, are replacement steam tips available? I would like to buy an extra 1mm tip and drill he holes out to 1.2 or so. I want to experiment with something in between the two stock tips.

Thanks. Let me know what to do about my lever still binding as I don't want to have long term issues with my machine. Clearly something slipped past inspection at Lelit. My cam looked a bit chewed up already as well, definitely getting some wear on the lower pin, which is way too early since I only pull around 4 shots per day on average.
