Subject: Portafilter fitment guide?
 

Can anyone point me towards a guide that tells which brands of commercial machines can interchange portafilters?

I have a bottomless portafilter that we've used in a Conti Xeos. I know it will work in several other brands of machines and I remember seeing a guide somewhere that tells which machines are interchangeable for portafilters, but I can't remember where I saw it. Since we no longer have the Conti I'm going to advertise this portafilter for sale and I'd like to be able to list what brands of machines it will fit.

This is a fantastic idea. Strange it hasn't been done yet.

Specifically I want to know what will fit NS Oscar, since the name brand bottomless is $100, which is absurd

If you get on the EPNW website and read the descriptions of their various portafilters, they go into a bit of detail on what fits what. This "standard" E61 PF shows the ear dimensions http://www.espressoparts.com/F_354B?&search_id=2400141. You could check your dimensions against it.

They have a bottomless for the Nuova Simonelli machines for $55 here http://www.espressoparts.com/S_20B?&search_id=2400154.

It has been quite a while but I seem to remember that my E61 fits into the Sylvia so going the other way round should work too.
