Hey Kyle, I just sent you an email with the .pdf file attatched.  

So you know, this is for the steam wand dripping while pulling a shot.  It has helped some stop the drip completely and I know it's only reduced the dripping for others, but has made it manageably at only one or two drips per shot.  Hope it works for ya.

I am also having the same problem with my machine.  I have had it for almost 2 years and now it is leaking all over the place; from the wand and around the coffee.  I am not getting a strong enough draw either.  I am confused about my machine going bad so soon since it was such a high dollar machine (I only paid $300) retailing for $900 you would think it would last longer.  I probably make about 2 drinks a day averaging 14-20 a week.  I am looking into getting a Rancillio but I am sad to give this one up because it is so pretty!
I would like that pdf also if it can save my machine.  Another question too; where can I buy parts to fix my machine?

What do you mean leaking "around the coffee"?  Do you mean when pulling a shot it drips around the portafilter?  At two years old you might want to think about replacing the group gasket.  This is the one you need.  

What are you refering to by "draw"?

It is an expensive machine, but I think there's better built ones out there for sure.  IMHO, the hefty price tag is fueled by the unique look.

There is a message buried in that experience. Good, solid espresso machines are rarely cleared out for 1/3 of their usual price.
