    Clip on cool touch handle for VBM hot water wand?

    I make quite a few long blacks and so the hot water wand gets a work out. But with how close it is to the brew lever there are a few burned knuckles along the way. I printed a simple clip from ABS but the heat makes it too pliable and it keeps popping off.

    Is there anything else available that can clip over it for easy manipulation/manoeuvring?

    Silicone hose maybe?

    I expect if you can easily remove the "head" of the water wand you could get a piece of silicone hose from an auto parts store that would slip over the wand. Most silicone hoses have a fairly high heat rating, won't smell like rubber and would be food safe.

    What about one to match the steam arm?

    Yeah, the CP ones are Ok but if as the OP does, you use it a lot, your fingers will definitely smell like stinky rubber in a fairly short time...
    +1 for the Silicone Rubber Tubing.
