IIRC (from when I looked into this myself), you'll need to swap out your wand for a LM one. EP carries the right one (though there are probably others too). I think I still have the part number in a folder on my home PC...though you can probably also find it through the HB forums, where it was also discussed a few years ago. If you ever "pull the trigger", I'd be curious to hear your results.
. Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!

Hi Emradguy, I have in fact upgraded My steam wand to a LM FB/80 wand. I already have a few different tips, with varying degrees of success, some are far too slow to get the proper propulsion in the pitcher others just can't quite nail it. The one I currently use gives me good microfoam, but not quite as tight as I would like it. I am looking for velvet like I can get at work using a Mirage. If I can find one at a reasonable price I'll let ya know how it goes, maybe even a video. B
