Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Portafilter Repair
Since my Silvia is second hand and of unknown age, I should have expected a failure of a non-metal part. So it's not 50 pounds of pressure on the portafilter lock and tamping?
I ended up having to replace the plastic handle with this nice spalted maple one cut from a tool handle my daughter supplied.

p.s. Grrrrr AT&T won't let me upload the picture again, it will appear as soon as I can straighten them out. Huzzaa! I twisted it's arm with another FTP program, now it works!
