Removing the baskets

Post by blgros » Tue Jun 03, 2008 2:47 pm

Finally got my V2 hooked up. How does one remove the baskets from the pf? With the least amount of scratching and damage?

Seems the baskets kind of loop over the top of the pf, so there isn't any gap there to pry it off.

And what is the best way to get the handle off when my new Thor handles come in?

With the stock p/f you will have to work something in between the basket lip & P/F then pry up. With a bottomless p/f you simply pop the basket out with your thumb.

I held the p/f with one hand & turned the stock handle off with the other when I installed my Thor handle. Helps to wrap a non slip cloth/pad around the stock handle when trying to unscrew it.

Check this thread, as you can see this issue has been kicked around since the S1 was first released. BTW: I re-found it by searching on Portafilter Spring:
