I had thought about using a binder clip or something of that nature, but it seemed a little ghetto to have a couple thousand dollar espresso machine with a 25 cent binder clip hanging off it. :)

I could forge you a one of a kind piece of art for a wand holder but it would cost a whole lot more than a binder clip that works as well or possibly even better YMMV but if you want the custom one....... :D

Read your comment re: the Duetto II with great interest.  I would like to mod my steam wand to get rid of the inner tube, which certainly does muck with my steam, but would appreciate some direction on how to do this.  Appreciate any assistance you can give me, thanks.

it's seriously as simple as taking off the steam tip and pulling the tube out with a pair of pliers.

don't forget to put on a rubber sleeve or clip or sugru mold something, so you don't burn your fingers

Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.

I was told  by Chris Coffee that pulling the tube was easily done, so he probably did......
