    Removing the Lower Boiler Joint (jet breaker) from Lelit

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Does anyone know how to remove the Lower Boiler Joint from a Lelit/Quaha/Imat etc without damaging it?
    It is supposed to unscrew but I can't seem to loosen mine without damaging it (it is soft brass).
    It is part # MC138 and channels the water into 4 x jets before hitting the showerscreen.

    Thanks
    Taan

    Thanks Mal,

    Yes have seen it but it doesn't specifically mention removal of the lower boiler joint.
    I was just hoping someone else had already tried. Picture of part I'm trying to remove below.

    Ah, Ok...

    I bought a large straight edge screwdriver from SuperCheap and then ground it down so that it was a very neat fit into the slot of this fitting. After applying a little heat from a small butane torch and then using the custom screwdriver, it came off quite easily...

    Hope it does for you too...
