Subject: 3-hole steam tip for Silvia
I bought the WWL 3-hole steam tip for Silvia. Now how do I change it out?
I put quite a bit of pressure on turning the old tip, but it would not
budge. I quit rather than taking a chance on bending it. This would not be
threaded opposite, would it? Any help appreciated.

Looking from the top towards the tip, you would turn the "nut" clockwise.
If, by some remote chance, you are kneeling on the kitchen floor, looking
from the bottom up, turn the "nut" counterclockwise. It is a normal
right-hand screw thread.

The 3-hole tip (from WLL or 1stLine) makes the formation of microfoam almost
foolproof whereas the 4-hole tip from EPNW definitely makes it foolproof but
simply takes longer. IMO, the 3-hole is nicely sized for Silvia.

Granted, the stock tip works (obviously?) but can try your patience.

Thanks. Just took a little more pressure, once I was sure I was turning the
right direction.

it unscrews, the regular way.

dave "121"

and IMHO this confers no advantage to the silvia
