Hi all. I'm frustrated with the knob design of the Silvia Pro X. I'm considering trying to mod a joystick-style control onto the machine, but I saw Rancilio's Clever valve that they use on commercial machines. I know I'd need to step down the fitting to make the Clever valve fit onto the SPX's steam tap pipe, but overall does this mod seem possible? Open and grateful for any and all advice and help!

Following... also wondering if it would it need the clever steam wand as well or will the Silvia wand fit?
