Quick question: Is there a single hole steam tip available for the base model V1? Will it accept a universal tip, such as the one for the Silvia? Thanks!

How about the new no-burn steam wand. What tips does it take? I'm just curious about a simple, single-hole tip.

The no burn wand will accept more tips such as the tips from Rocket. They are 10mm if I remember right, but I would verify that for yourself.

Sorry Rob,  not sure what to say beyond the fact the fact that it is not normal - but you already know that. Get the case off, get a good flashlight and play detective. Maybe look for a stain on the top of boiler where the drops are hitting and track upward from there.

Markarian, I have also been looking for a single hole tip for the no burn arm.  Nothing so far.  I have one of my holes plugged and get way better results but would prefer to get rid of the toothpick!  I may end up using some epoxy if I don't find something soon.  Let me know if you find anything.

i did all that... no leaks anywhere inside. The drip tray is filling faster, I am almost sure its coming from the overflow tube ... or whatever is the correct term. The big silver tube that water gushes from when you are doing a back flush. At least I think that is the case, its kind of hard to tell. It's not a steady water drip or anything like that...very slow... and its noisy..all that sputtering...but it can be quiet enough at times where you can barely hear it. Sometimes for short periods its gone altogether. Pump is running more frequently too.... and I now find when I go to do the cooling flush water stops flowing altogether unless I lower the lever and then raise it again. I even backflushed hoping if it was only a sticky valve that it would be freed up.... even though it really wasn't ready for a backflush.... didn't help.

I laid a paper towel on it.... nothing ...so it is coming from one of the overflow tubes that drip into the back of tray...

This is the one I have for my Oscar:

Click Here (www.chriscoffee.com)

It's labeled as being for the Silvia, but it fits the Giotto, Isomac, etc. So if the no-burn arm takes the Rocket tips, you should be good to go. Installing this on my Oscar took all the headache out of steaming milk.
