    Thanks very much Leon,
    There is no rush, enjoy your break. I will also be away for work a couple of weeks but on my return I will try the technique you suggested. Cannot wait!

    Cheers Hoggers, if the other method does not work I will resort to a friend with a vice .

    Cheers
    Charlie

    Charlie... I had the same problem with my portafilter handle and no amount of praying to the gods was going to make it part ways with the handle.
    I ended up sticking it in a vice and it came away easily.

    Not sure if you have tried that but it worked for me. I think I just needed something to really grip and hold the handle still to break the grip of the glue.

    Tassie Blackwood handle now fitted and looks amazing.
    Hi Hoggers , yes a vice is also a good idea. The handle looks great with the bottomless head ☺

    cheers Leon

    These handmade sets have been made using Old Growth Jarrah which is my personal favourite wood to work a with as it has a nice chocolatey colour and smells like cocoa when sanding. The wood also finishes with a lot of rich hues.

    I make everything to order and if time permits occasionally I make extra parts and build them up over time and will have some available premade as Christmas approaches including these which are available now.

    The following sets are designed for a Lelit Model PL62S, Profited Pro 700 & 800 and a Rocket Giotto.

    Lastly here are two styles of Slayer designs I came up with recently. The handles are made robust and fatter than the originals to accommodate the larger M12 bolts and are fairly heavy.
