  • Spare Parts Suggestions...

    I was looking for new products for our website, this I will add Grease Food Grade and the Silicone Heat Transfer Compound.
    Gday Renzo, another thing along the same lines as the lube I dont think you stock that you may consider is some form of liquid thread sealer. I use Loctite 567 but you may know of other better alternatives. I often read about people going nuts with PTFE tape, which is sometimes appropriate, at other times a liquid sealer is really the only smart way to go about it.

    Thank you Peter, i was looking at the Loxeal 58-11 as a seal, I use this one. However, I think the Loctite 567 is more affordable, specially you may use once or twice.

    Please feel free to give me any idea of what you would like to see in our website as spare parts and tools. We should put more parts and this items this afternoon or tomorrow.

    Regards

    Renzo

      Renzo, a bit OT from this thread, but for what its worth Jack put me on to the Loctite as I understand its what they use. Its supposed to be high temperature, and certainly is by spec, but it does seem to be affected by temperature. Jury is still out in my books so Ill have to wait to see how it goes. I have a tiny leak thats just started on the HX hence my scepticism. You do use a surprising amount on a machine actually, well I was surprised anyway. Mind you that was a total strip and rebuild so the number of fittings starts to add up.

      The only other thing that comes to mind would be various steam tips to suit commercial machines. I think increasingly people are putting ex-commercial machines in their homes, and maybe the standard tips are just too "big" and difficult to use for the small amount of milk typically steamed in a domestic environment. A 2 hole, or even a single hole tip would probably sell I would think.

      Maybe you could start a thread in the general section entitled "Spare Parts Wish List" or similar, where people could suggest things theyd like to be able to get here in Australia but havent been able to?

        Pete,

        You are right me need more selection of steam tips, I have now in stock Mini Mazzer small hoppers but i am trying to get more of the parts to modified grinders.

        Thank you for your help.

        Regards

        Renzo

          I have played around a heap with different tips (a few tips with lots of different hole blocking combinations) - but havent found the perfect arrangement yet. The best is the stock Giotto tip - but I think that the diameter of steam arm, amount of steam, angle of wand etc are all very much inter-related to the steam tip - and so tip selection is very much machine dependent in my view.

          I think this is a good idea. I recently used the email all sponsors function recently to see if anyone had available the single hole expobar tip - as I was keen to give that a go. Didnt get any responses unfortunately. Im sure there are still more tips out there that I havent tried (Ive tried those from coffeeparts) - and Id love to know where to get them.
