On post '83 Olympia Creminas there is a copper tube from the boiler to the steam faucet. I need someone in Toronto to fabricate that part. Any suggestions?
Last problem in a very enjoyable re-build.

Go to a local plumbing specialty shop. They should all have copper pipe in various sizes and I am sure either they could help you make it or they could easily refer you to someone who could.

None...went to several places but no luck. Also trying one of the local equipment distribs to try to persuade them to have one of their repair guys do it. Or send me to someone who would...No news from them yet.
Very frustrating. There must be hundreds of people in Toronto who could do it.
Keep calm and carry on...

Orphan has all the metric barb fittings & a how-to make pipes guide on their site.  Its such a small part I'd say get out the torch and give it a go.  Worst case you are out a few $ in copper tubing.

I tried to order a small sight glass tube for my Faema through the local dealer (a part that was still available) and the price was so crazy I couldn't do it.  Turned out a fellow CG/HB'er had an extra one for me.  If all else fails, stop looking and one will find you.

I watched it. Only mildly confusing. Do you have a supplier of the bits? BTT caps, nuts, tubing etc.

Sorry i dont check here too often. Here is a link to the bsp fittings at orphan. Click Here (www.orphanespresso.com)

While not professionals, there are a few of us leverheads in Toronto that can help with your Cremina. They are well made machines and i would encourage you to give it a go before trusting a local "professional". Im sure its been sometime since they have seen a cremina in their shop.

The knowledge you gain from the rebuild will help you maintain the machine for many years to come.
