Hey guys, I bought an Audrey with an older Rocky a little while ago and steaming with it is a mess because it doesn't have a tip (just a fat open wand). Does anyone know a place that might have one?

Edit: While the reservoir was out being repaired (had some hairline cracks), a housemate stepped on it and destroyed it. Ugh. Does anyone know where I could find a replacement or alternate container that would fit?

Are you looking for OEM, or just a fit?  Some of the Gaggia, Saeco/Starbucks, and Delonghi may fit.  If interested, what is the OD of the steam tube?

I don't have a caliper here at home, but it looks like the same diameter as Gaggia steam wands. But what part are you saying might fit? The Audrey wand threads into the valve at the top, and I believe it's female threaded (on the inside) requiring a male threaded steam tip.

Also, really bummed to find out someone broke my reservoir. So I also need to find a replacement or alternative.

I assume the Silvia wand wouldn't fit? I use a Silvia tip for my Oscar, but it looks like the Audrey's wand is a bit unusual and seems almost like a single piece from the pictures I've looked at.

I just noticed you have two E61 machines (HX and DB) and a roaster who's manufacturer won't even list their pricing on their website, yet you sound pretty distressed about a plastic SBDU machine from the 90s being out of service. Are you a collector or is this your travel machine? I'm just curious. Obviously it's awful when any machine is needlessly broken, I was just wondering.

Ha! Touché my friend. I tried a V2 silvia wand and tip, but they're not going to work unless I possibly find the complete valve (but the steam knob configuration is pretty unique too).

I bought this machine (with a matching grinder) with a family member in mind, and it's turned out to be a real headache. I had hoped it could be an easy plug and play setup. I play with a lot of machines and usually don't hang onto them for very long, and most of my collection begins as projects, which I have way too many of. So my frustration also has to do with having all these little things that don't really feel worth doing, but I'm in between jobs so I can't afford to throw these things out.

I am looking at the parts diagram.

http://www.partsguru.com/user/AudreyParts.pdf

That "tip" looks like you could use a slip over like the one on the Classic and many other machine, Delonghi ..

Click Here (www.partsguru.com)

You wanted a tip, not a wand.  That wand looks proprietary to the Audrey and I assumed it to be intact from your first post.  The Gaggia OD is about 0.236" as is Delonghi.  You can find several types of slipover tips by going through that partsguru site looking at different parts diagrams.  Unfortunately the tips are not usually great and most us of replace the wand with the V1-2 Silvia.  Thus my original question, are you just looking for a tip, any tip, as it may be better than the open wand.

Hope this helps.
