Does anyone have a ES-1A boiler with ruptured HX?
- I've a long-term project in mind to convert an ES-1A into a dual boiler machine. It'd involve adapting the original boiler into the brew boiler, so the HX would have to go. This will keep the E61 thermo-siphon connections to maintain group temps and flow control programming in the original boiler. I'd need to plug some of the fittings, but that's no problem.
Then I'd have find/make a smaller steam boiler and run the auto-fill to it. It'd take a bit of plumbing and rewiring, and I'd have to remove the motor/pump and put it below in the cabinet. It should be a doable mod; but first, I need a busted boiler. Anyone know of one that's available?
