Subject: thread size for La Marzocco giggler
Hi,

I'm going to try to make an adapter to use a 0.6 mm La Marzocco
giggler on my Techno. I've ordered a giggler and a couple of 1/8" BSPP
to 1/8" BSPP adapters from McMaster-Carr to play with. I have one
question and one assumption I wanted to check. The giggler has a small
head with no slots or hex features attached to a threaded body. From
that, I assume that it's designed to have the water flow from the head
toward the threaded end, since otherwise it would unscrew. Is that
correct? Is there a sealing washer of some kind used? And what is the
thread size (please tell me it's not 1/16" BSPP or some such
nonsense)? Thanks in advance.

Best,
David

Thanks so much, Barry. I hope the trip through the basement wasn't too onerous.

Best,
David
