Came across this on a great french site, this should really be on a reddit thread 'an attempt was made' Pavoni decided to enter a different segment of the market with a boxy looking bar machine, with minimal effort they put a pro into a box (possibly the boiler is a bit bigger than usual but not much), I can only imagine the complaints they got the first time people took the lid off the full thread is here http://machines.cafeslevier.free.fr/eurobar.html [ATTACH=CONFIG]40316[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]40318[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]40317[/ATTACH]
When I stripped down the two 1978 La Pavonis I noticed that several of the ceramic washers on the heater disintegrated.. It would seem a common problem . I found that orphan espresso and the chap on spanglefish in the uk recommend using PTFE As substitutes. It has a working range up to 250-260C I bought a metre of the stuff and it is dead easy to drill and cut on a lathe . Has anyone tried this or can see pro or cons ?
