well,

sounds like the 220v to 110v is going to be harder than I thought for me..
but still, the Aurora is moving forward..;)















...split from 220V to 110V.. possible !? by moderator...

Dramatic difference. Impressive work! Any particular reason for changing to black from the polished look?

Did you check with Joe at The Good Coffee Company in Seattle? I think he might be able to source a 110 element as both my Termazona (Brugnetti/Aurora) and his shop 2 group still have elements available. The conversion should be fairly straightforward.

Mark,
pretty much the look, I really like it how the flat black looks.

Perry,
I haven't call anyone, but I'm going to leave it 220V.
IF I get hard heater about using it in this apartment (and for once can "overpower" my wife) I'd go with professionally try to get a 220V outlet in the apt.

still need to work on the back and side panels. I have the back panel pretty much done, for the side was thinking of hard 1/4" plastic.. a kind of see-though look, since it looks so clean inside now.. ;)

Obviously your choice. It runs really well on 110, however, with plenty of steam and heating capability. I don't think 110 elements cost much wheras 220 does.
