    You can use a drill to make it bigger... It does not have to be the whole basket....


    In the older SB PB I used a drill and made 6 in a circle and the one in the middle... You do not have to open them op that much...


    If your into the maths.. The standard hole is 0.7mm If you make a 6 or more at 1 or 2mm , remembering boils law... You will understand that there will be no back pressure any more :-)


    It is just that it looks cleaner with teh whole bottom removed... And if ya go Naked...

    So AM in ur opinion would drilling holes be better than cutting the whole bottom out?? Does this still give it back pressure which in needed??

    No back pressure at all.. Same as a normal non pressurised single floor one...

    You should have had two normal and two pressurised... With teh EM6910..

    The pressurised ones are used as screw holders or small ash trays by me.. *

    The non pressurised ones = single floor is the only way to go.
