Topic: Castrating the Carezza (2 msgs / 25 lines)
1) From: stereoplegic
my 2nd Gaggia PF came in today, so the one that came w/ the machine went 
the way of the Napolitano choirboy (ever read Voltaire's "Candide"?)... 
wow, brass really is soft! even w/ my POS 
change-the-blade-to-suit-your-size (2 1/4" in this  case) woodcutting 
hole saw, this mod was a cinch. a little grinding w/  a 2" stone wheel 
bit to finish the rough edges, sweep up the mess, rinse the PF, and i'm 
done! total time 10 minutes tops. the basket is a Rio brand 21 gram 
triple basket for LM machines (fits the group just fine, actually fits 
my EspressoParts tamper better than the Gaggia double basket.
