  1. This is some restoration I did on a listed building ,the staircase had been badly damaged and other than the original turn at the bottom everything else had to be replaced. All the spindles are dovetailed into the treads before the outer trims are fitted. The handrail joints are fixed using two dowels and a handrail bolt in the centre for strength. The bolts are tightened from underneath through a small mortice.
  2. Hi, I´m looking for a lever like Cimbali Eleva, where spares are still available and a restoration is required. Europiccola, La Pavoni lusso is to small ; ) I´ll appreciate any offers Thank you & all the best Tobi
  3. Hi all, Last month I was able to snag a Gaggia Tell 2 group machine for an absolute steal, but part of that deal was given due to a key part missing from the machine: the drip tray. My machine has no tray or grill, and I have been hunting for a possible replacement for a bit now. I am posting here to inquire if anyone has knowledge on where to source a possible replacement. Everything else is present with this machine which is fortunate. I have contacted 10+ vendors at this point including Ascaso and Enrico Maltoni (he can do it but only if I have him restore it for me, which I respect
  4. It's not really a turd but you have to question who in Pavoni decided on brown. I wanted to pull one of these apart that wasn't the one I use daily and I found this one. It's in pretty good knick. The plan is to fix the electrics, change all the seals, give it a good clean and de-scale and get it powder coated. My original idea was to change the colour to a light blue or orange but it's an old machine and now that I've seen it I'm thinking of keeping the original colour. Anyone have an opinion on colour? Any suggestions of what I should do to it? This is especially aimed at the
  5. Hi folks, Some have probably noticed that i was warking on some old clone of Mazzer SJ (astoria). I dont want to bother you showing all the process but wanted to share some before and after photos. Here they are: And new "hopper" with "inspection glass" Everyone knows that the hopper is the collapsible 3in1 lens cover. The lid is a jar lid from IKEA I happen to have for a long time. Upcomming works on this: 3D printed fork rest for the portafilter backplate motor cover timer relay - if I'll find something that wo
  6. Hello Chaps, I'm looking for some advice from people who have renovated their Mazzers, or any other equip for that matter. I bought an old mazzer jolly on the weekend for a really good price. It looks 10yrs old and has never been cleaned. I've stripped the machine, cleaned all the oils and smelly gunk etc.... given it a good clean and I'm ready to move onto the paint job. There are some great examples of where people have done their own sanding/painting online, but I am torn whether to go down this route or whether to get it professionally done. I'v
