    I think it is reasonable to suggest that very soon Jono will be taking stuff to the next level!
    Just wondering did you recently purchase a LMLM? Or have you ordered something else?

    Not long to wait for the unveiling haha.

    Hi Jono, thanks for sharing. I was abit concern that I may have lost a part or broke the screen.

    Also, i would like replace the group head seal but I found 2 variations (8 & 9mm). I have read that people recommends the 8mm for newer machines. What are your thoughts?

    It depends on your portafilter, you can buy an 8mm and a spacer or just get both and see which one fits to your liking they should only be 6-8$ if you buy the rubber ones.

    At the moment, I'm still using the standard portafilter. Probably I'll just get one of each. I saw that LM has an orange silicon seal which maybe longer lasting than the rubber ones. See if I can find it selling in Australia or not.

    have we got a tracking number yet Jono? also since this is the thread about the machine Jono bought it is also the thread which should accumulate relevant facts. perhaps one of those relevant facts is the "setup" Jono was admiring elsewhere on the site.

    Hey Mr Gray, the machine should be in the country this week, I'm crossing everything that it will be installed before the end of the month. I have been sent a photo of the completed machine by the factory and I'm so excited. Be careful using other threads on this forum to accumulate facts, Ha Ha. Here is a photo of the machine for you.

    From the blur picture, the machine looks very edgy. My guess a Synesso. . I can't find a picture of Hydra with the angle that I suspected in the picture.
