Topic: Upgraded to new equipment (6 msgs / 391 lines)
1) From: B. Scott Harroff
I've upgraded to a Brewtus II, converted to a rotary pump, and plumbed it in
to a filtered water system.  
So, its time for Miss Silvia and my Technivorm KBTS (both purchased from Tom
and Maria) to find a new home.  I just don't see using them with the speed
and ease of the new machine.
I've also posted my MACAP professional tamper as I've finally got my manual
tamp figured out and am using either an Espro or a tamper from Les.

Please share your experiences with the new Brewtus II. I recently visited t=
he site and according to them it would not ship until about now. How did yo=
u get yours so early?
  
I am currently making do with a low-end consum=
er pump machine. My dreams are now haunted by E61 groupheads and shiny Brew=
tus machines, and I know that they are in my future.

I have the 1 and it's one of the best purchases I have ever made. I wouldn't 
part with it and if anything ever happened to it I would run out and 
purchase another. Bet shots I have ever had one after another. Entertain 4 5 
people at once and can enjoy their company rather than spend all my time in 
the kitchen.

James,
I bought a Bll last March and quickly fell in love with it. In September it 
developed a leak in the main boiler and required me to send it back to WLL 
for repairs. Being in N. Calif it took 1 week shipping each way and WLL took 
2 weeks to repair it. So it was gone for a full 4 weeks. WLL service was OK 
but they never explained to me what or how the problem occurred or what if 
anything else they did to the machine while they had it. I got it back in 
early October and so far it works great. I really liked my Silvia but I love 
the Bll for it's easy and consistent results.
