    Hi All.


    I like a lot of other CS have been placing a towel over the group to help with morning warm up.

    So I made a template of what I wanted and my Darling wife run it up for me and it turned out great...

    works really well holding the heat and looks a lot beter then towel.... :)

    cheers Gra... 8-)

    Yes timers are good, But I have three or more coffee a Day and this cuts the warm up time in half.. ;)

    Good one Gra.. Good also to help protect the head too if you need to transport it. The beanie is the ideal name

    Youve become the king of the VBM Domobar mods. Cant wait for when you fit a spoiler and GT stripe :)

    One mod I definitely want to try is a bigger water tank with a handle for easy removal and insertion.

    I used to remove the water tank each time it needed refilling (assume that is what you are doing?) but for the past 6 or so months I just use a tall plastic drinking cup to top it up each morning. Every Saturday I pull the tank out and give it a quick scrub. Having said that, it never really looks like it is in need of one....

    I use the same plastic cup to purge the steam wand into rather than pointing the wand into the drip tray. The rim of the cup surrounds the top of the nozzle attachment when the cup is positioned below it.

    I use a 1.5L jug to top up the tank, but not having to fill it quite as often is more what I was getting at. The tank on the Veeb Domobar is about .5L too small I think.

    I give it a wash out once a week too. Having the handle would make it a bit easier and allow me to fill it before putting it back in.

    I wouldnt mind a bigger tank too.
    The Expobar one is 2 litres but theres room in there for a slightly bigger one.

    I have some disco lights in the garage but they are a bit big.
    I have some small mirror balls though.
