first off id like to say hello to everyone at CG im new to membership but not espresso or lurking CG and the like.
im an espresso tech out of Pittsburgh, Pa

recently I was installing a machine for a guy who was developing lofts and a coffee shop all in the same warehouse when, he was like oh you should see this ancient machine I  have laying back. As i looked at this machine I hadn't really realized how old it was but i knew it was up there. Anyway he was grateful that I installed his machine until 10pm on a Friday not like I mind I'm getting paid and I ask him if he'd like to get rid of it so I offered 200 he gave it to me for 100.

Now the challenge I get it home btw it weighs like 300lbs. and have no idea where to get parts photos anything for this machine the burner is missing the drip trays, the signature dome with eagle and Pf's(ALSO SINCE I DIDN'T NOTE IT'S FROM 1924) so does anyone have family in Italy????

Very cool! Can you take a rubbing of the coin in the center of that plate and post a photo of that? It looks interesting. If you manage to get this into service, I'd love to see shots of it in action :-)

Beautiful machine. I know it's been since 2009, but any progress? I'd love to see photos of the outcome or progress.
