Hi Brian,
Thank you for the extra photos. Its great to hear you are getting good shots; It would be nice if the reservoir opening was a little bigger :(

Great photos!  Glad to see someone else getting good results out of the machine.  I thought that I'd add this to the photos.

2 1/8" hole saw + about 15 minutes = DIY Naked Portafilter for my Le'Lit!

Awesome!! Did you just put it in a vice and start on the inside of the PF?

I started from the outside of the PF actually.  The hole in the bottom where you would normally screw on a spout is perfectly centered, and using a hole saw with the center guide bit makes it very simple to keep it centered.

With some aluminum soft jaws or a cloth between the vice and your PF you shouldn't worry about damaging the outside either.

Thanks, its a bit sad they're not, but I have yet to have an issue with the old set up. The new one just looks a bit easier to clean.

I'm also wondering how it's going.
I got the same machine (on back order).  The wife still wont approve the 400+ dollar grinder sigh.

I would hope that you've received your LeLit by now!  How do you like it?  How do you NOT like it? :)
Mine is on backorder but I'm starting to get second thoughts about this vs the Silvia - given the reputation of the Silvia.  Jim, feel free to chime in on this, as I did order it from first!  
How well does this machine froth?
