We should have a trick out my Oscar party in Seattle.  I am hoping I don't have to tap my group head for the restricters.  I want to do all that to my Oscar along with the steam wand mod.

plindy, What vacuum breaker did you use?  Did you order the musica one?  I was thinking of getting this and doing it on the steam side when I upgrade my steam wand.  Do you think the OPV adds anything to the taste of the shots from Oscar??

01000023 musica vacuum breaker
0300202 musica cup
07300116 musica joint T 1/4 M-M-F 465


Yes, if we did this we could totally shoot the whole thing to post.  I would love this because I would not have to buy a bunch of tools and I would have some support.  Every time I open the lid to my machine my husband goes ballistic.  People fear what they do not comprehend.

Helen, that's not a bad idea. I'm sure the guy at NS is sick of me at this point, but it would be fun to invade their store anyway with a litany of parts we need.

Wow you're going all out! I'd be thrilled with just getting the valve chunks out of my HX, getting the copper cleaned up, having a new boiler sock, and getting the vac breaker myself. I'm a relatively broke college student but I can at least offer Plindy pizza and beer :D

I also have a really nice HD camera if we did want to do a video. There's lots of Oscar owners out there who have the same problems again and again. It would be nice to have more resources for them.

I want to do the steam lever mod, vacuum breaker, restricters, and make the wand a bit longer.  Frank said the wand mod was 86 bucks.  I might do the OPV.  My insulation looks good, also a descale of the boiler.  If we do this, food will not be an issue, I am a very good cook.
