    portafilter spout loose

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Just a quick question. The thread on my double portafilter spout has loosened after two weeks use, so that when I tighten it - it sits 90 degrees out of sync (ie when portafilter locked in spouts sit North-South instead of East-West).

    Its not a big deal, but slightly annoying. Is there a simple fix? I was thinking some white plumbers tape might work, or putting it in a vice and trying to tighten it another half rotation - but then it might never come off or possibly break ?

    Another website recommended fibre washers???

    I can also just take it off, but that stops me from making two coffees at once.

    Any ideas ?

    You should be OK with the white plumbers tape. Theres also a pink one you can get thats thicker/requires less. Thats what I used when I replaced my spout on my VBM pf...but it rarely gets used as I mainly go naked...with my pf that is ;D
