    I am now the lucky owner of an Enders Baby (powerful little beast!). I have a few questions in regards to this.
    1: While fettling I noticed that there are three different types of pot support - any ideas why? And which one is considered the best/your preference?

    2: I haven’t dared yet to unscrew the regulator spindle, because after some full turns it starts to be very tight. Is it correct that you only need to remove the regulator-nut, and then turn the spindle counter-clockwise until release?

    3: I have no problems with getting the pump tube out of the tank - but How do you get the pump shaft out of the tube?

    (Knowing my own “power-to-patience” ratio, I have bitterly learned, that often are better to ask questions first - instead of paying afterwards (or getting stitches).

    Harder, I think you just got lucky with the 3 pot supports. Usually the 9063 came with only one, either the round style or the 4 armed model. Possibly the style was determined from the years of manufacture but I don't know for sure.

    Unfortunately I am only the lucky owner of the first pictured four-legged spiderlooking pot support.
    It has a good adaptability and wind protection - but it may seem a bit flimsy.
    I haven’t seen the two other types up for sale singlewise.

    @kerophile
    Thanks for the links - will do a closer study. As for now it burns quite powerfull, but I like to know the inside of my stoves

    I also recent acquired a 9063, with that "spider" type of pot support, ,which works, but seems a little flaky, doesn't really mount securely on tin.
    THe pump tube is held in by the gasket, pick gasket out and tube will come off.

    @Tony Press
    I saw yours when trying to find out how many versions of pot support Enders made. I actually find yours to be a bit better designend than the original Enders steel bar version. (I have yet to try other versions) Yours have a good short distance between them. But I will have to settle for the spider version, since I don’t have neither means, patience or skills to make a (very well made) pot stand like yours.

    I used mine this weekend with the spider version, and it worked fine.
    @Tony Press , mine is not a powerhouse, , probably a bit less so than an 8R, what are your thoughts on yours?

    It works well enough for its prime task of making espresso - you don’t want to force the heated water through the coffee too fast; just nice and steady.

    I haven’t compared it to an Optimus 8R, but I think the 8R would be a bit more versatile.

    Cheers

    Tony

    The 9063 Baby, just by having a pump, should start up a bit more lively than the self pressurizing 8R. After the 8R builds to full pressure maybe they are equal but I think the 9063 would still have at least a little power advantage.

    You might need to fiddle with the end bends to get a snug fit on your box.

    I’ll put them in the post this week.

    Cheers

    Tony is a good guy! Well done. :)

    Just reading this post as have just picked up my own little "baby". Spider web pot leg system. Maybe a little worse for wear than your "baby" Harder but still a baby to play with. :)

    Indeed @Tony Press is.

    Have fettled mine a bit since top picture was taken.
    This is present state.

    I really like this little powerhouse - which is now placed on my “never ever sell-shelf”.

    Looking very much forward to try TSPS (Tonys Special Pot Support)
