I thought the pressurized part of the EC155 was the basket? I don't think your hacksaw messed with it. Unless you hacksawed the basket too ha.

The 607706 is a new unpressurized basket.

Your close to a good shot!

When the shot begins do you see that beautiful dark brown straight shot? You want that the whole time!
It went to a horrid squirty uncontrolled shot.

I would say your basket is dirty and clogged inhibiting the smooth flow of coffee.
So clean your basket out. Sit it in Hot water with a safe cleaning agent and brush it out. Or buy a new basket.

Net you see the flow is all over the show, fast slow and you get drips to! All this means your grind. A fast flow is a corse grind a drip is a tight gring. Also consider how much coffee you pack into the basket. Maybe you need to change the burs in your grinder?
Clean your grinder out.

Also your shot goes white quite fast and this means again the grind is to course or stale.

Are you grinding or are you using pre ground?
Pre grounds are always stale and to course to my experience.

So keep trying to maintain that beautiful dark brown honey oozing shot!

Seems like you read his first post, watched the video and then replied. The rest of the discussion revealed, among other things, that he's using *$$ beans he get for free and grinding them on demand. Also, he seems to have progressed beyond what was shown in the first video to a shot he calls acceptable.

Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!
