    EM3500 repair with my sons toys...

    I thought it might be fun for folks to see the high-end repair job that turned my friends paperweight back into an espresso machine.

    Just out of curiosity, who thinks I should have kept the ESP4 for myself and given the EM3500 away?

    tsk tsk, wheres the safety officer? Neither men have hard hats, that guy up top is climbing in a non-approved platform without scaffolding, leaning over the edge, no high-vis gear, and the electrical equipment isnt even tagged out...

    Okay, so of course the angle-grinder fairy has visited and I now have an unpressurized double basket (no single when I got this hand-me-down, Im afraid). This evening, in a fit of pique, I unscrewed and removed the plastic inside the porta-filter, wrapped the screw in al foil and put it back.

    Im not sure what difference this will make in my cup of coffee, but I sure do feel industrious.

    would be easier if they all drank coffee instead of tea.
