I'm not sure if you have a bottom'ed portafilter already, but if you do you can save a lot of money by getting a $10 hole saw bit, sticking it on your drill, and cutting out the bottom of your portafilter. Only takes a few minutes. Drawback is that you can't split shots anymore.

Ok, so how about a used portafilter in general that isn't bottomless. I hesitate to use a hole saw on my only portafilter, because if I mess it up that would mean no espresso until I found a replacement. Anyone have an old beat up portafilter with or without the handle for a a Pre Millenium Europiccola?
