I've got a LP Pub M1 and two portafilters. One I use with a single spout (ie, for double shots), and the other has a double spout. But I'd like to get a bottomless PF. I used to have one with my old Silvia but they're incompatible. Can't seem to find anyone selling a LP bottomless so I was wondering if it's compatible with La Cimbali, or others. I'd also thought of having my second PF machined out (I almost never use the splitter) but I haven't gotten to that point, yet.

Stefano is usually a great source for La Pavoni parts including the commercial series.
Here's a link to their bottomless portafilter for the La Pavoni Pub (I think - you should confirm with Stefano) $60 Click Here (espressocare.com) They also have various non-bottomless portafilter options for the La Pavoni commercial systems too.
Also sites like espressoparts.com have La Pavoni commercial portafilters available, but you if you want them to cut it the charge is $25 + cost of the new portafilter ($49 for body only, $72 with handle too - might be better options out there)
I think the Stefano option is likely your cheapest, but you'll want to confirm product with him to be sure it will fit your model.
