Couple of cups of standard coffee, daily. Doppio espresso for summer cafť stops.

Oh and I'm going to go full trainer geek and put the old S1 in tri config on an MP1. No more bike swapping. I can get it through the shop with my team discount, and if I'm going to be on it for like eight hours a week...

Big shower with 2 heads is a requirement for us too, or at least enough space to add a second head.

unfortunately here nothing is hitting the market because of Covid

Off to work, for the first time since St. Patrick's Day.

Kudos.

I'm envious, if that's not too political a statement.

Good luck out there!

Is this coffeeforums.net?

If so, which coffee maker gives you the most bang for the buck??

In that metric, none of these recently-discussed devices can possibly be the answer.

Mine is $50 Cuisenhart that my local coffee shop told me would work for making coffee at home but my barista didn't know that I was going to buy an espresso machine at some point or I'm sure he wouldn't have recommended it.

Anyway, I'll go into research mode this week. Something to do during the stay at home...

Did a bunch of yardwork this morning so it's presentable if the landlord comes to look at that downed fence. It is not on Strava.

What's Ramona up to these days? Did she manage to learn Spanish?

Maybe someday I can wrap my head around the actual scale of the event. It's mind-boggling that the entire side of the mountain just...slid off.

Hey kissTheApex - have you used any guide bushings on your router table? I'm trying to figure out how to use a threaded Porter Cable bushing (for a dovetail template) on the table, but none of the included inserts is the right is the right size (1 3/8" I think) and I've been stumped in searches online. I do have a Bosch quick change adapter for the router base plate, and that'll accept the PC bushing, but nothing for the table.

The average speed for my re-mousing/infusion doesn't seem to be too good. I was the first one in and the last one out this morning. Four other patients came and went while I plodded along.

I guess there's the expectation that patients wear masks now. Many (but not all) of the people in the building were wearing them. But I don't have a mask so I was a rebel.

No I havenít. :(. Iíve looked at them A few years back in case I needed and it looks like this Has been in my wishlist, but I canít remember if it would work with the base that goes in the table.

Mentions do not seem to be working again.

Damn. Yeah, that's what I have for the router base, but I don't see a way of affixing it to the table plate.

If I can't find a way to fit the bushings, maybe I'll see if I can find a bit bearing with the correct OD.

yeah, oversized bearing was going to be my suggestion. Whiteside has them in pretty much in all sizes for their pattern bits.

I'll let you know when I get everything dialed in. Should be able to get here in 2 days from NY state, maybe 1 day if you fuel up on espresso along the way. :thumb:

I talked to a guy at Whole Latte Love and he recommended it over the higher priced units so I bought it. He said it was a workhorse and a half and would last forever.
