Subject: Rancilio Silvia portafilter compatibility
I have a Silvia, and am looking to buy a used, second PF that I can
convert to a bottomless. How do I know which brands of portafilters are
compatible with Silvia?

The reason I want to know what other brands fit is because I'd like to
buy something used off of eBay or Craigslist, for $10 instead of $50.

PF's that'll fit usually sell in the $35 - $50 (S&H included) range on
eBay. It's supply & demand thing; unless you drop a Silvia down a mine
shaft they so seldom get scrapped that there's very few used PF's on the
ket & there's always a demand for the few that become available.

Figure the cost if you did find one; $10 for PF, $30 to have it modded, $15
S&H (both ways), $7 for a 21 gram basket. Or, you can buy one made for your
machine, w/21 gram basket, for approx. $65 (S&H included).

A new Rancilio basket is $50, give or take a dollar. They come in two types
[standard & commercial] for not much difference in price. Why try to use
another brand and take a chance on it locking up?

Think ya mean portafilter Harry, that'd be one mighty expensive basket!
{;-) The Ascaso 15 angled portafiler is great & works like a charm on
the Silvia withe the compatable 21 gram triple basket too.

Thanks for the correction. Yes, I meant the PF.

Just buy a new one with the bottom already cut out. They aren't that
expensive.
