I'm restoring a Mazzer Luigi srl (Astoria Super Jolly) which was shelved for years. The timer switch was corroded beyond help, could anyone give me any advice with bypassing the timer switch on the relay board? I've attached a picture of my relay board. -much oblidged

I don't know what you mean by bypassing the timer switch. I don't think a broken timer switch can be made into an on-off switch, if that is what you are asking. The timer is part of the switch. If this were mine, I wouldn't risk any rewiring, just replace the switch. You can buy a new switch which is on-off if you don't want the timer. try cafeparts.com

The timer/switch should only have one wire in and one wire out if I remember correctly. I suppose you could just use a switch in loo of the timer but I would replace the timer as a unit. If you try to bypass the timer, you will be forced to plug it in and pull the plug to turn the grinder on and off, not a very handy way to do it.
