Part # F_134-2 Stainless steel Espresso Machine Steam Wand Tip with 2 holes at 30 thousandths width and at a 30 degree angle. Designed specifically for the after-market CMA steam wand, AS_15 or GR_26 and some other after-markets. Primarily for commercial equipment.
Yes, the microfoam is amazing and they fit most all machines that have a wand where the male threads on the wand are 10mm outside diameter and each thread is 1mm apart from peak to peak; 1.0 thread pitch (in most cases, this is only on commercial after-market machine steam wands) and no more than five threads high. Be certain to carefully inspect and measure your existing wand before purchasing. You may want to consider purchasing a new after-market steam wand for your model that would accept this tip.
Note: The Silvia version 1 and 2 do not have a 10mm steam wand and hence this tip cannot be fitted to it, and the threads are too long on the version 3, so this tip doesn't fit on any Rancilio O.E.M. steam wand.
Tip fits perfectly. Now I can make latte art, how cool is that?! Note, -I had a four hole tip, and that steamed milk in ten times the speed; -So if you're not into latte art and need the steam to heat up super quickly think about the two hole vs the four hole tips; -I now have a four hole tip on one side, and the two hole tip on the other side, best of both worlds.
Great micro foam! Threads on the tip need to be deburred in order to thread easily. One wrap of Teflon tape helps the threads seal without a steam leak.
We have an older espresso machine and the two hole tip that was on the machine and wouldn't create the velvety foam one expects in a good latte. Installing this tip transformed our foam. Our customers and baristas noticed the difference immediately. Overall an excellent aftermarket tip.
We have an Olympia Maximatic from the 80's and the stock wand has 4 holes and doesn't work well for microfoaming as the holes are too large. The new maxi wands are not compatible so I bought this tip as a mod. At the machine shop we threaded the welded-on tip of the old wand (10mmx1mm) to accept this tip. Looks and works great.
