    Are there any Canberrans who have done naked portafilter conversions?

    The BES800 uses a 51mm portafilter. I have since upgraded to a BES920 which uses a 58mm portafilter and is really nice

    I have done another conversion for a CSer early last year. I can't remember the brand of his machine but it was a 2 head lever machine that used I think a 48mm portafilter. The nearest holesaw I had was quite a bit smaller than that and I think it took be about an hour to file down.

    A few days ago I did another naked conversion for another CSer of his Sunbeam 6910 58mm portafilter. Used a flapwheel in the drill instead of a file, which made it easier, quicker and had a nicer finish.

    Good job. I did my first naked lelit PF with a hike saw and a drill press. Used some lube and took a while but with a bit of sanding to remove the sharp edges turned out great. It blunted the saw though, probably as my hole saw set was the cheap multi size thin variety.

    Cheers

    Portafiller naked conversions

    Hi all,

    I have just converted my Breville BES800 portafiller to naked with a hole-saw and files. Takes about 15 minutes.

    I'm willing to do anyone else's, assuming you bring it to me or pay all postage. I'm located near Liverpool in SW Sydney.
    Let me know what the internal diameter of your portafiller is (or model), and I'll see if I have a hole-saw that's close enough to file.

    Here's a few pictures:

    Take that portafiller! Now for some filing...


    Hmm, maybe a bit more filing...


    Tada!
Working...
