Do you know offhand what type of batteries those cheapo ebay ones take? Are they something exotic or easy to find? Thanks.

Out of interest, I cant find anything when searching for the listed patent number on the OCD website (M550602)

The OCD is designed for commercial coffee machines, not dicky consumer ones with small portafilters.

An overpriced one at that: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32792237141.htm

+1 on this, once the top of the puck is smoothed out there isn't any need to tamp. Also recommend getting some scales, I got the ones below...

Is this just a way for them to get some cash flow? Would be worried they go bust and you lose your money.
26/05/2020 - 13:02
no, just pointing out a CPU is high risk of being noticed by customs unlike a camera/phone/jewelry which you can sneak in under the...

copper transfers heat better than aluminium or iron, so it should even out the heat to avoid hot spots and make the pan more responsive to...

better off buying a kenwood chef on gumtree and cleaning it up. Unlike this unit spare parts will be available for the next 50 years.
