    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

    Absolutely stunning.
    Do you have a kit for the Expobar as well?
    Does that include the brew lever?
    Cheers

    Hi Charles,

    Thank you, yes I make parts for the Expobar Minore IV. My standard part sets include the small brew lever, 1 x PF handle and the steam/water handles. I also make additional PF handles and matching accessories from the same piece of timber such as tampers and stations etc.

    The link to my Expobar sets can be found here Leon Wilcox Handmade Wooden Coffee Parts - Expobar Minore Handmade Hardwood Coffee Parts

    If you have a different model, I design part sets for every machine that I am commissioned to make as we have a metal lathe in house and also a machinist nearby who makes the more complex brass fittings for me, such as making square holes and unusual threads etc.

    Cheers
    Leon
