Hi guys, my dad's Brewtus has the no burn wand and I really dig it over my Brewtus' standard one. WLL said they don't have this part available, so the only other option I've seen is the Vivaldi II wand from Seattlecoffeegear and Chriscoffee.

I've read that it does fit Quickmill machines, does anyone know if they share the same nut size?

We normally have them in stock but I'm afraid that we don't have them right now.

I do have a perfectly good used one that we can give you a great price on.

If you would like it please contact our CS/Tech Manager  at andrew@wholelattelove.com and he can set it up.

Thanks

Hi Todd, thanks for that info! I emailed Andrew this morning and told him the back story on your post. Is there any chance someone at your place can verify that the Expobar machines and the Vivaldi use the same wrench to install the steam wand nut? If not I'll give it a shot, but that would help me feel a bit more confident.

Is it possible you can just convert your existing wand to the "burn me" type?  I did this with my Duetto, after someone else on here said it improved his steam 1000%, and it did mine too.  All I had to do was take off the wand, remove the steam tip, and grab a small diameter plastic tube that was sitting inside the wand (using needle nose pliers).  Then I just put it all back together and voila!  That was free!  However, if you decide to go this route, you'll need to buy a rubber insulator so you can adjust the wand position.  Espresso Parts sells them for a few bucks - less than $10 for sure.
