I have a Gaggia Classic & the filter handle keeps loosening up.  You take the cap off the end of the black plastic handle.  My husband has a tool but it really isn't long enough to tighten the screw inside the handle.  Anyone know what size allen wrench you need to tighten the screw in this handle.  Frustrating.  Thanks.

Check the Gaggia Users group on Yahoo.  They know everything Gaggia!

I don't remember it being an allen wrench. I think it was just a normal bolt head, not a socket head cap screw type. I seem to remember using a socket on an extension, possibly 10mm.
