    Expobar Minore III owners

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone, I have a favour to ask.

    Is there anyone with a Minore that knows someone else with a Breville BES900?

    Or is there someone that would be willing to lend their PF to someone else on here with one?

    I am in Newcastle if anyone has one and a good friend is in Sydney, we can both be trusted. Everyone knows who I am anyway from my blog.

    The lend doesnt have to be for long, as in an hour at most I would say, if that.

    Ok well that was a fizzle :)

    Unfortunately the Minore lugs are just slightly too wide sitting at 82.99 outside lug to outside lug whereas the Breville is 78.55.

    There is also a slight difference in the body, whether that made a difference in the fit could only be seen if the Minore lugs were machined to the same fit as the Breville.

    If anyone else has any other ideas, Im open to suggestions.

    My Expobar Office Control is 81.6mm lug to lug, so slightly smaller than the Minore III. Still wont fit, but maybe some other people can post the lug to lug width and see if any are closer.

    Finding one with more of a sane screw on handle that fits would make it easier for things like custom handles.

    Might still be some magic to be worked yet...

    Can only hope so Muscles.

    I am extremely grateful to the person that lent me their pf, it was all done in a hurry (I had a laugh were very impatient when we think we might have an answer) and they didnt have to do it.

    I owe them some roasted :)
