Cafe reviews / Lost Freight Cafe, Pinnacle Rd, Hobart, Tasmania
« Last post by LloydM on 14/09/2018, 09:51 PM »
Located on the road up to Mt Wellington. 
My wife is in Hobart for a few days and sampled a coffee :coffee2: and curry pie here today. 

Very nice, in her opinion, and it has a high rating on TripAdvisor.

You have to drag the photo across to see it all.   ???

EDIT......... :doh: didn’t see that Tasmania had a section of it’s own until after I’d posted.
Could someone fix my mistake please?    :doh:

Thanks guys. As far as labels are concerned I may or may not add them. Depends on what I can find that's not going to look "cheesy".

I like the machine and the upgrades

Are you considering some labels  :question:

Here are some pics of the new control panel after a slight re design. I added individual LEDs for each button and powered the ring LEDs from a separate power source, a 9volt battery ( temporary of course). When I add the shot timer I'll grab power from that for the button LEDs.

So I made the replacement control panel mounted all the switches gave it a test run and BAM! epic fail. For whatever reason the Gicar is not liking the lighted switches. Without the LEDs connected... no problem.  With them connected... the thing goes nuts.  Back to the drawing board.  Perhaps separate indicator LEDs.  Tomorrow is another day.  I'll grab a few shots of the new control panel tomorrow as well.

There's enough room where the original touchpad is for the new switches so I figured I'd use it. I dont want to alter the machine too much from stock. As far as the Gicar goes I will be able to use it without any modifications or replacement. I did some testing and was able to figure out which pins perform what functions on the ribbon cable connecting the touchpad to the Gicar. Actually very simple.

Cool! Look forward to seeing it.

Very nice!!  I'd be interested in how your use of the pressure gauge improves your outcomes. I used one with a HX machine to tweak the boiler pressure/heat and the steam subsequently wasn't as dry and strong.
