Description
 

This adaptor converts the existing female 8 mm steam arm on the Andreja Premium to a 10 mm male. This makes it possible to use any of the steam tips available on the market that are 10 mm female.

*The 4 hole La Marzocco steam tip will not work with this adapter*

O-ring design flaw (that I fixed) February 17, 2017
Reviewer: Peter Honig from Concord, MA United States  
The reason why several people have had trouble with the 10mm side O-ring is because this adaptor has a design flaw. Namely, there is no captive groove for the O-ring to sit in and it therefore gets crushed and cut by the edge of the steam tip that is attached. To fix this, I put the adaptor in my lathe and undercut the 10mm thread at the shoulder to create a nice recess for the O-ring. When the steam tip is connected, it now presses the ring toward the inside wall such that it is no longer visible when the two parts are joined. Before, the O-ring was a fat bulging distortion when squeezed by the attached tip and was subject to leaking because it was not captured so the pressure could easily extrude the ring out the side. For me, this is now a 5-star item, but unless you have the machine tools to make the proper modification, this is probably just a 3-star item for you. Other than this flaw, it is a well-made stainless steel part with no burrs or sharp edges.

Effective adapter with a small gripe. February 1, 2017
Reviewer: Chris M from Los Angeles, CA United States  
I'm using this with my Expobar Brewtus IV DB which I've modded with the Chris Coffee no-burn steam arm. Using this adapter I was able to use my other 10mm male tips perfectly.

1 Star gets subtracted because the black 10mm o-ring seemed to rip itself (reaction to heat?) after only about 10 sessions. There seems to be some quality control issues there.

I still heartily recommend it, but expect that you'll need to replace that o-ring.

Not what I expected January 23, 2017
Reviewer: Ariel Hazi from Pacific Palisades, CA United States  
Sort of a poor way to replace the steam tip (Isomac New 2 Hole Steam Tip.) I wish the steam tip had the proper thread and mating and I will be done. The o-ring died/tore in about a week and I just gave up on this solution.
