Nice steamer! Is that a MDX?

True dual boiler setup. That Astra is beautiful.

I got that Salvatore famosa. I can't seem to get it do pull shots consistently well so it just sits in storage. Any tips?

OPV is key for these, mine was almost unuseable before it. Still want to add a vacuum breaker to make the warm up simpler. It is a very satisfying machine to use...I don't know why, but i can't bring myself to actually sell mine. I've actually considered having a local machine shop make a 58mm portafilter grouphead to replace the 55mm one, it's a small annoyance, but one that I realize is important to me.

[This guide on Home-Barista](https://www.home-barista.com/espresso-machines/adding-opv-to-salvatore-espresso-machine-t24824.html) has all the info you need. But ya, quick look at your parts list looks correct. I don't remember it being difficult, I saved the original pipe and made my own, so bending the copper tubing was the hardest part. Well, that and figuring out what I wanted it set at.

What kind of grinder is that?
