Another Restoration Thread - Mazzer Major Auto

Recommended Posts

This will look fantastic when it’s done, great job. Not sure if you mentioned in the thread- what’s your plan for the doser?

I came across this guy on YouTube- Daniel Wong based in Taiwan.

Looks like a clever doserless mod. I emailed him earlier this year but never took the plunge and made the investment.

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone mention this mod on the forum before so cannot vouch for either the effectiveness or the trustworthiness.

There's someone on the forum who went for one of those but can't for the life of me remember who. Think it comes with a little puffer thing to blow the grinds out of the burrs & the spout.

I made the plunge a week ago for my Super Jolly, waiting on it in the post.

@L&R has the kit for his Major I believe.

Little update: WERE NOW PAINTED BLACK!

3rd coat now drying. Letting them harden off between coats as it’s taking longer than I thought. Not worth rushing it with all the time I currently have. Next thing is new feet & power cord then re assemble I think. Still need to do the doser clean sweep mod.

@jimbojohn55 I know you’ve messed with these in the past - the hopper safety switch, is it possible to just pull the wires out completely without bridging any connections in the terminal block?

Short answer no, and yes, just trace them back to the block and bridge them

Grand, cheers mate. Kept the connectors in the block and just stuffed the hole for spraying as I wasn’t sure. I’ll bridge the connector block and then get a bit of aluminium panelling over the existing hole, similar to what you did.

Part way through re assembly:

Original portafilter holder sanded and polished, new power cable, doser to go on next then clean out the lower burrs and re assemble! Just gotta change the feet and springs in the burr housing on Monday and l (fingers crossed) it'll start first time and run!

Lens hood lid is Oak and was turned by Jimbo on this forum. It's been rattle canned yeah. Not bothering with a top coat as it's not going to go back into a commercial environment, so if it has to be re-sprayed it's not the end of the world.

You might want to try swop the the feet out for felt pads to give extra clearance if you need it, I installed roller feet on the rear of mine to make it easier to pull it to the front of the counter. Looks good
