Hi There,

I'm not really new here but it is my first post to you. One Month ago I've started to rebuild a LSM P 95E Espresso machine.

Pictures about the phases below:

I'm now a bit undecided how to proceed: with led or without?

I know it's hard to ask you now :-) to attend a poll but I'll give a try:

Thank you!

I like the Led version.......I have the same machine.

Thanx for your feed back! It was fun to follow the polls. The majority likes the Leds.

At least I hope so.

I have no idea. It just does not work.

Hey there, wow that looks so cool with the transparent housing!  Well done.  I recently ajusted my grinder to grind finer which worked okay till today when it went on fire :)  I pushed it too far i think!

I posted this q on another thread but it may be dead.  Can this model be used by using a tank of water to supply the water to the boiler?
