  1. Machine is just north of Swindon but can be brought down to just outside bath @ZiggyMarley
  2. Great condition la Pavoni Europiccola dual element on a stripped “raw” base this has been stripped serviced and rebuilt, i had the base chemically stripped and have left it in the raw state, which I think looks great, you will need to keep the base clean and dry as it will rust if not cared for. The chrome work on this one is awesome as can be seen in the photos. It is working perfectly as you would expect. It comes with double and single baskets, I have got tampers available that can be purchased separately if required. thisbis a great example and will let a lifetime if looked after. It will have the black Pavoni badge on the front. £225 plus delivery although my preference is collection so that you can see it working and be completely happy.
  3. I am clearing out the levers fron the forum day so first up is the beautiful blue Gaggia mini that was lovingly restored this thread, so check it out and see the work that has gone into it! it has only been used at the forum day and is amazing condition. The beauty of theirs little lever is that it has a full 58 mm portafilter and therefore a VST or ims can be used. These are quite rare and I have never seen another for sale in this condition £250
  4. Indeed, I only have so many “spare elements”
  5. It’s worth what someone will pay, but a mint one is worth a grand
  6. I did not, as I Have a versalab and this will add nothing.
  7. It’s a shame that you have had this experience. A little bit of research prior to purchase would have shown you how much ssp burrs cost and the fact that these were so much cheaper should have raised alarm bells. i have purchased many items from them without any issues at all so this is surprising. I don’t quite get why you are referencing decent espresso in this thread, although they may have great service now, their customers were continually delayed in not only the early days , but even a few years after lunching the campaign, which is hardly efficient and was very frustrating for early adopters
  8. @AliG let me know if you want one like that as I have a few.
  9. If for some reason it spins in the wrong direction then change it, the carrier and exit chute are set up for one direction only, this is more than likely down to different burrs.
  10. Ok my thought for what it’s worth, and having used every iteration of the Londinium machines is this. If your preference is for darker roasts stick with a used gen1,2 or 3 L1, they all do essentially the same job with minor changes internally on all of these machines. They are boiler fed pre-infusion, which means the pre-infusion pressure is limited to what you set the pressure stat to and when you pull the shot on the element cycle, but essentially your realistic maximum pre-infusion pressure is 1.2 bar -1.4. Another advantage of the original londiniums is that they can be line fed fairly easily and thus become silent in their operation. The difference in the LR is that it is a cold feed heat exchange and as such pre-infusion is acheived via the rotary pump, which is a lot quieter. This pressure is completely adjustable on the latest variant and the pre-infusion pressure has a direct correlation to the temperature of the shots, so basically the lower the pre-infusion pressure the lower the temperature, which suits darker roasts, lighter roasts are extracted more efficiently at higher temperatures, so the flexibility offered on the LR with being able to set the pre-infusion up to 6 bar means fine tuning light roasts is much easier and you are able to grind finer and extract more. hope this helps and yes I did write pre-infusion 7 times!
  11. How much space have you got, I really rate the mazzer ZM
  12. Just an update to this thread, due to unforeseen personal circumstances I won’t be able to take this on, I believe mark and Daren have a back up plan and am sure they will do a fab job
  13. Short answer is yes
  14. Ha ha, how short the memory of the forum is, DSOL was the first club however I set this one up and handed over the reigns many moons ago, I felt that I should give it another go and hopefully get you some amazing coffees just like mr slim, however I do appreciate they are some big shoes to fill
  15. The motor and burr cahamber will not work as a whole unit inside a k30 the motor is the same so could be used if you had the rest of the grinder, I have that same motor assembly as you have with the motorised grind adjustment, was looking to use it in a different project though
