Didn't actually choose the colour myself (@ BrettH).  This was the machine and grinder CWE customed for their MICE stand and was set up pulling coffees for those interested in Slayer machines.
On the last day I asked what the deal was on the "used" machine, they offered it at a reduced package price that was to good to say no too.

So green black it was.  :thumb:

Council have been and looked at my site and given me the in principal approval to squeeze the new shed onto the block, so hopefully the paperwork will go through tomorrow and we can start moving forward.   ;D :coffee2: ;D

Just want to say that is serious machinery that will provide many years of enjoyment and banish upgraditis forever.

Well done Cosmic.

Thanks GatG,

It has been a terrible illness the upgraditis, but I think I have successfully beaten it this time.  ;D

But have developed a minor case of blingitis and secondary impatience seeing the slayer on the bench with no power or water connected yet.  :laugh:

You have bragging rights on any forum and with any Cafe' setup as well.

That set up along with your sophisticated palate and desire for the unusual will make for an excellent coffee shop/roaster y someday.

I am just happy Chester is up this way for a change, not everything good has to be in Melbourne/Sydney,

it will be really nice to have access to slayer shots and 90+ beans

Pressure profiling has always fascinated me.

Needle valve, this controls the flow rate of the pre infusion when pressure profiling.

Thats just with the cup tray off C-man, remove 3 screws on the side panels and the whole side comes off takes about 30 seconds.

good Access makes things so much easier, with a good manual service and repairs should be pretty easy as long as

parts are OK to get.   Looks well built and pretty straight forward plumbing wise

I have no Idea whats involved inside those paddles?

Thanks for all the great support guys, be sure to put you all on top of the "social at cosmic couples" list  :thumb:

I have everything I need to do a temporary fit  ;D but maybe I should show some paitence and wait till the shed is constructed (about 6 weeks) i'm in two minds  ::)

that's a tough decision

lets see.....

1. sit there and look at a new green Slayer for 6 weeks

                            or

2.  hook it up (which needs to be done anyway) and start enjoying it.

Congratulations on your acquisition! May  it bring you many years of joy and fulfillment.

Thank you for sharing the photos of the inside of the Slayer, it was great to see the build quality.

I must admire your resolve. It must be extremely frustrating to have a new toy that you can touch, but not play with.

Just hook it up.... you know you want to.

I might look at installing her tomorrow, shed builders will need great coffee to keep them going won't they?

In the meantime here is the bowling ally bench top I have been working on, 2nd coat today with plenty of fine sanding and many more coats of clear to come.

[attach=1]

2.6 meters long by a bit over 1 meter wide. Think it will look great under the slayer. Bench top is being fitted on some old industrial steel workers benches.

Me thinks a bowling alley is somewhat longer than 2.6 M, so there has to be some more lying around either at Chester's or his supplier.
Or, there could be a lane at the 'local' losing balls halfway down the alley!  :rofl:
BTW Chester, it's looking like a knock out bench for the "green" goodies. Well done :exclaim:

Surprised it didn't make the news actually, "Bowling alley stolen, thieves strike again leaving bowlers spare time to ponder how they did it"

 :rofl:

Local demolition yard had two lanes which they pulled out of a pro bowlers home in Brisvegas.

So temporary power all most finished, water line installed so should be playing with the Slayer by the weekend.

9x4 meter shed all ordered, approved and paid for.

Silver Streak all pulled down and new twin burners fitted, probably another week For Mark Beatie from Coffee Roasters Australia to do all the wiring and set up the coffee sweet software.

The ball is well and truly rolling  on this project now :thumb: Thinking that a Crema day will definitely be needed, so start considering a date roughly 8 weeks from now but I will keep you posted on that.

[attach=1]
All stripped down ready for new twin burners.

Out with the old electrics ready for the new.

Thanks for all the support guys.

If you got some room left in the shed, bowling alley, a couple of pinball machines and a bar to accomodate ales and manual brewing.
Goodness, you got enough top notch stuff to run a home boutique cafe

Please allow some consideration for those 'cremas' that will need to calculate and include travel time.  :P
