Subject: St. Gallen Model 700???? What is this?
 

I got a machine earlier for 5$ and can't find out a thing about it. It's  a PNI/ St. Gallen model 700, made in Switzerland. It's smalish, metal housing, nice build quality. I'd say its in the 300$ class of machines. Vibe pump and heavy duty nice grouphead, all metal. It's missing the portafilter and I can't find out anything to get a new one. Can someone help?

St. Gallen is a city & canton (state) in NE Switzerland. A cursory Google search only pulls up a few passing references to this machine. What is the full information on the number plate?

I searched online for several hours and tracked the us trademark back to a now defunct company in delaware. The only thing on the bottom of the machine is
St. Gallen Model 700. Switzerland. UL Listed
The Ul listing is just a reference to the type of product it is.

Not necessarily & the very reason that I requested all of the information. Sometimes the UL/CSA/FCC, etc code can be traced back to a specific manufacturer or provide other insights into the product's origin. If you want help identifying it, we need all of the information. That includes anything stamped on components, patent numbers & whatever you have already discovered in Delaware. Can you post a photo (both the machine & number plate)?
