Finally getting my shrine photo uploaded.  Of course, this one is from the middle of a session, so there's a bit of a mess in progress.  To the left is my Motta knockbox, several stainless saucers, and my box of Venezuelan stirring sticks.

About time for my updated post.

Expobar Brewtus iv-p
Quamar M80e
Ascaso I-1d
Reg Barber tamper
Cafelat knockbox
you can see my yama syphon in the background.
various monin syrups for the family.

My set up is in a weird place at the end of a counter adjacent to a window. Im waiting until I can remove the cabinets above it (they aren't holding anything useful).

Here's my latest shrine (I say latest 'cuz I have an Oscar but I can't resist looking for machines on Craigslist and I found this mint condition KitchenAid Proline Dual Boiler machine for less than $80!)  I am gonna have fun modding it.

The grinder is a La Pavoni Zip clone made by Obel Bregant.

This is my Rancilio Silvia v3 with Auber PID and bottomless portafilter and ridgeless double basket, Fionrenzato T80 grinder with a plastic spice jar fitted as a hopper. Also shown is home made knockbox which was fashioned from an Ikea hardwood box from their as-is section and a cutoff dowel. It is a nice roomy knockbox and does not make too much noise since the dowel is wrapped with rubber.
I also have a Yama siphon coffee maker (not shown) with butane torch which is awesome and very entertaining for guests.

This 75kb limit is really cramping my style! Put up a new tile backsplash that really makes my rig look good.

This guy just showed today after much anticipation. Expobar office lever paired with the preciso. Could not be happier! Thanks everyone for the advise on machines and grinders. I am happy to join the ranks. I have spent the morning dialing in the grinder, and have pulled a few quality shots! I am working with Twilight from Velton and it is AMAZING coffee! Only complaint is I should have bought a bigger knock box as I have had to empty it twice today already!
