Topic: I have gone to the dark side (6 msgs / 109 lines)
1) From: Kris McN
OhmygoshyouguysI'msowired!  I LOVE MY LA PAVONI!!  I got a used La P Pub S
single group from a defunct deli (it's like Ed Needham's (http://www.homeroaster.com/setup2.html)only more beat up).  After MUCH
cleaning and replacing of valves and gaskets and what not, my husband
plumbed it in a temporary spot in the garage until we (and by "we", I mean
"he") adds the counter space in the kitchen.  It all came together yesterday
when the water filter went in AND my Thor Tamper Ridgeline arrived (
www.thortamper.com) (so, SO beautiful, Les!).  This morning we are enjoying
one americano after cappuccino after double shot after americano.  Even my
4-year old asked for a "presso".  I'm about to go out and pull a double of
Rwanda Gkongoro Nyarusiza just for fun.
Sweet brown elixir of life!!

It's a great machine, shots are almost guaranteed, and it's built like a 
tank.  Glad you rescued it from disrepair and brought it back to life.  Just 
curious, which valves and gaskets needed replaced?

Well, some of it was strictly routine, like the group gasket (though I think
I need to order a 9mm one to replace the 8mm one as my PF locks in well past
6 o'clock).  I also had to rebuild the whole valve apparatus on the steam
arm (it had a constant, small leak), and we had to fix the valves on the
water softener.  I also replaced the shower screen and dispersion screw.
Nothing major.
Thanks for being so available for questions, by the way!
