    Replacement water/steam knobs for older La Scala Butterfly

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    I have an older 2003 model Butterfly and the knobs have rounded out in the centres. They are a push on "D" profile type knob with a 6.7mm shaft.

    Ive contacted the Aust distributer novitas but no response, have asked coffeeparts but there are too many styles of knob around for them to know which to send (they dont specifically supply La Scala bits). Have googled about looking for knob manufacturers but have come up blank (unless I want to order 100 of them !)

    Anyone have an idea where I may source something ? Not fussed about getting original items, just reasonable quality ones that will fit, even with a bit of hacking.

    Thanks in advance,....Robby

    excellent idea,..sometimes I forget that not everyone is as obsessive about email as me.

    gave them a call and they have the originals in stock. Unsurpisingly they are not cheap but thats life. Ive ordered a couple, should be back in action soon.
