    This is the most awesome thing... I thought the knurling looked a bit... cheap and I love my AGA T and had already posted my minor hardware upgrades here:

    Thanks to Bad-Habit for posting this and SO69 for the drill pictures, I used an old 510 atty to hold mine in the chuck. I only had up to 220 grit but didn't mind the Satin/brushed finish, here's how mine came out!

    No m8 it used to be the classic Aga T before!
    You 've done a nice job with yours too! Isn't it great without all this knurling on it?
    The new version, the AGA W is all polised and without threading in the top cup!

    Only with PV gear have I ever received a brand new item to modify it immediately haha

    My AGA-T should be here next week and at first I wasn't sure about removing the knurls but I must say this thread has inspired me.

    Need to get on ordering a IBT replacement tank and maybe see if they'll paint 'er up for me.

    I am sad that the AGA W has a threaded tube... the next revision of the AGA T due January looks awesome though, all smooth, oring top, etc!

    As Arvidx pointed out, the only problem I see with it is the threading that is on the tank. No glass for that puppy!

    SO69 - I like the way you incorporated both brushed & polished on the atty.

    Just received my AGA-T today and loving it.

    Though I do want to correct this airhole alignment issue.

    I just need to sand away at the bottom of the cap until it sits in line right?

    Will probably be deknurling it soon too. Just looks so much better.

    Yep. Just sand away. Work slowly & when you get close, switch to your finest grit to smooth off the bottom.

    There is the V1.5 too or something, as the one i have doesn't really look like either.

    It doesn't have that flange protruding from the top for the drip tip and the angles of the cap are different too. Nor does it have those flanges on the bottom.

    I thought it was supposed to be a 'push-fit' cap using orings though? Am I still seeing some threads?
