    Thanks for the thanks. It's an awesome machine. This one was fully modded by Rick (The Coffee Machinist), then shipped to SA.

    Well this is my learning machine. Practicing with Aldi beans at the moment. And if you guy think these beans are bad I can't wait to taste some of the beans from the roasters on here

    The work rig.

    My pride and joy, Kees van der Westen Mistral series 1, no. 32 of 116 and restored / customised by me with input from Kees. Next to it is the 'Bond Villain' mark 1 grinder, a BNZ conical flipped upside down and reversed. It's early days but the start of another cool project!

    Christmas panettone makes grinders more fun... and misc. brew equipment in the background. Pour over anyone or the rare Bialetti brikka ?

    Ah geez Matt...

    You've gone and made me drool all over my keyboard...
    Wish I had some of that biscotti to take my mind off the cleanup.

    The gs3 will also be modded, Strada parts are on the way as a start. Then the cosmetic changes will begin later .

    I'm not thrilled with the compak e8 yet because of its clumping, reason being I had been single dosing with doser model super jolly. speed and aesthetically though the e8 rocks.

    Spose I could add some pics of my new grinder here for anyone that hasn't seen it. Bought dirt cheap and cleaned up very nicely.





    And side by side with my K8 Silenzio.

    Just sold one with the refurbished Gaggia Classic, but obviously picked up the K10 above so I'm back to 4 electric grinders and 2 hand grinders. (Although I currently have 5 electrics at my disposal as I have my brother Sunbeam).

    When I was in the UK playing around with grinder refurbs, I think I managed 5. I had my old sunbeam grinder, 2x Mazzer SJ's, Ceado E7, and a La Cimbali Max all going at the same time. I usually had 2 or 3 spare Gaggia Classic refurbs and could hide them all behind the couch so my wide didn't realise...
    I'm really going to miss my eBay bargain hunts!

    I thought I'd dig out all the coffee making paraphernalia I've got tucked away in various cupboards at work today. Thought I might need to consolidate. In the end the only thing I've brought home is the hand grinder as I use everything else.

    My daily setup
    Gaggia Classic: Passive preheater box added internally, PID and integrated shot timer with a half completed volumetrics module perched on top, IMS screen and a brass dispersion plate.
    Mazzer SJ: Lasercut lids and grind tray, lasercut grind adjustment gauge, 3d printed throat insert to remove dead space with a custom weight to match diameter, lens hood hopper/puffer, cocktail shaker doser mod with cleansweep and schnozola.
    Champion shots, but still wanting to upgrade... And yes, that's a sacrilegious sugar bowl on top!

    And just for fun, My 'Change of scenery" setup that I use when I want something more involved on the weekends...
    La Pav EP and Ceado E7: The Ceado is basically that same as a Mazzer SJ, except lovely construction and adjustment system. Again, laser cut lids and grinds tray, custom made insert to remove dead space in the throat with an integrated adjustment gauge, Plus the usual lens hood, cleansweep and cocktail shaker mods. I haven't had a chance to get to my wood lathe and
    make some handles for the La Pav yet, but its on the list!

    Wow! Welcome to mod central!! Some great mods there Timmy that I'm sure are paying dividends. It looks like a V1 Silivia wand on the Gaggia as well. And the OPV is adjusted to 10bar I'm assuming? The brass dispersion disc and IMS shower screen upgrades are spectacular eh? Nice work.

    My vote is +1 for Hypergears awesome coffee bench and setup.

    Would think of voting Chris' white Slayer and Compak grinder but he might have an advantage as a dealer.... ;P

    So many nice machines people have here

    +1 Hypergear ... liking the inspiration for coffee bench. I'm hoping to rope someone in to help make one out of old pallets.

    +1 LeroyC for a clean grinder at a bargain price.

    Is it too late to take the competition to a separate thread? Or just go off likes received? This thread was originally supposed to be "pics only"

    Otherwise, +1 Alchemist

    Yes, well it's not always the size that counts, or so they tell me... But it has got me thinking of a new beastie, I could use your advice, just revived an old thread in the extreme machine section so will carry on the discussion there.
