          If you wear those nitrile gloves in the finishing process you do not have to clean up your fingerprints.

                aluminum alloys in acidic conditions leach horribly. Please put this one on the knickknack shelf and redo in steel.

                            I dont know if I can believe that a man can be, my favourite youtuber, great teacher, great sense of humour, quite obviously a hard worker AND be such a great dad... I dunno, I reckon you gotta give the kids a beating every now and then to give balance back to the universe 😂 😂, those smiles are always infectious 😁

                              Seems like you need to oxide the aluminum surface first before using it otherwise you may experience aluminum poisoning.

                                nice, but i wouldn not use aluminum to eat and to drink from, it is almost toxic, second how you regulate pressure of vapor, i have dolce gusto caffe machine and i tried to save some money and to reduce plastic in use for eat and drink so i ordered stainless steel reusable cup: but they did not make good pressure valve because for good coffe must be right temperature and right pressure, othervise bad no tasty coffe, so i had to make spring loaded adjustable valve in many tries

                                      That’s why my expresso never turns out so good, I don't use a butane torch to make it...and no WD40.

                                      When I was a chef I was told that expresso was the fundamentally the original type of coffee to come out of Arabia about 500 years ago. Who knew they had metal lathes, milling machines and computers back then?

                                      Another superb video and excellent build.

                                          Thanks for the video. Must take as much time to make the video as it does to make the part! I like that you show enough of the details to where I could almost make that project myself... but I'm headed for Starbucks!

                                            Aluminum and acidic coffee? Seems like a great idea to get Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease.

                                              Well most likely old Tony didn`t use aluminum suitable for food anyway.....just some industrial stuff.......gag.

                                            Great job! Now you need a tamper to pack the grounds down good and tight. Thanks for this. So I get where you are coming from on projects like these. I am an electrical engineer but my true passion is custom wood working and I own a custom wood working shop. When I don’t have a customer project to work on, I find myself really testing my skill and knowledge with my tools. So I get it and thanks for letting me know I’m not the only one who does this sort of thing.
                                            All the best to you and yours!!

                                                        The first coffee i ever tasted was brewed in such a pot. We call it an "Italian nut", because the most common type here has the angular shape of a nut. I'm still brewing my coffee every morning in such a pot. Not as strong as a real espreeso, from a proper high-pressure machine, but still beats every other alternative! And you made this just right! Good job!

                                                                You could just add a second port above the water line where you could add WD-40.

                                                                WD-40 displaces the water, forcing it through the coffee which would make this worlds first room-temperature espresso maker.

As one other said I usually don't watch anything over the 15min tops but I knew your build would have a tricky mating work. To bad you didn't show the math and how you got there. Did you have to trim some off the top of the boiler or were your calculations right? Did you account for compression of the seal? Love your sense of humor and how you overcome a problem.

I have this thought whenever I'm making something and I happen to set my coffee/beer down a little to close by the machine.. or welder.., or grinder.., or lathe... or...

I open the door of the small house next to the lighthouse and everyone is there.The song continues as everyone is laughing and sharing stories as the sun he’s down
