    Well the Splendor makeover is pretty much done. I finished the knobs and managed to do a budget upgrade to a ball joint steam wand ($50 for the wand and $2.65 for a bush adaptor). I may still make a wood cup surround though. The last big thing on the list is to get the thermosiphon temp under control. I had a chat to one of the fix-it guys and it's just gonna be too expensive to get him to do the flow restrictor. I don't know anything about the insides of the machine so that is off the table unless I can find someone wanting to do it for fun . Done for now - time for a coffee...... Cheers, Daniel

    Thank you Paul will do. I have just come back from a break and back in the workshop. Here are some recent DC cap designs which are made with 317 stainless steel that I have machined locally.

    Thank you Paul and Artman, that set comes from a nice figured batch of Olivewood that I have just cut and am using for some Rocket, Profitec and Breville works in progress. Will post some pictures of these as well soon.

    Cheers
