Will it fit?
The 12mm O.D. threaded bolt fits a large majority of the manufacturers out there, except for La Cimbali, Nuova Simonelli, Rancilio and La San Marco, which use a 10mm bolt. You may want to remove their existing handle and check the size first. 12mm = .472 or approximately 15/32 of an inch. Remember, not all manufactures handles simply unthread from the body; some are held in place with a nut and washer. The handle may be held to the body with thread-lock on the bolt as well. In most cases, a bench vice is needed to remove the handle.

I purchased this with the La Marzocco Factory Cut Bottomless Portafilter and it's a nice upgrade to our GS3. It was easy to switch out the plastic handle, just let the machine heat up with the portafilter locked in and use a rubber jar opener to twist the handle off. It looks great and feels solid. 10 out of 10! Killer customer service from the EP team too!
We used these to replace the stock handles on our 2 group Slayer (gen 2) and I'm really happy with them. They both feel great and look good. The color of the wood is slightly darker than what is shown in the picture, which I was actually happy with. Overall great product, and excellent customer service. Thanks Guys, -Andrew
