Hi guys,

Am wondering if any of you guys know which if VST 18, 20, 22 gram baskets will fit into original single and double Rocket R58 portafilter?

Am ordering my first espresso machine and couldn't get any measurement on the portafilters that come standard with the machine. I heard I have to buy a naked portafilter to be able to use VST basket on the R58 but am unsure.

Another question is will La Marzocco portafilter fit to the R58?

Thanks so much in advance all.

Regards,

Nic T

You'll probably get more traffic in one of the espresso forum pages, maybe mods/restorations, Q&A or Gen Discussion?

I would expect the 18g basket to fit your pf handle, but you should check this by calling one of the VST vendors before you buy (preferably one that sells Rockets).  They should also be able to tell you if the LM handle fits the R58. I'd be surprised if the 20 or 22 fit in anything other than a naked pf handle.  Another option for the LM question is to browse somewhere like Chris' Coffee Service, as they have a lot of compatibility info about many of their accessories.

Good luck!

Thanks much for your reply and kind suggestion Ron. Am new to the forum, apology for the misplaced thread all :)

Does anyone else know? R58 owners out there willing to shed some light?

Thanks again.

Regards,

Nic
