Subject: Rusty base in my Rancilio Silvia
 

After 3 years of heavy use base of my Rancilio Silvia has started to rust!   I am considering refinishing of replacing the base.   Base is listed as A-19 ( part#10880150)  in the part guide below, but I could not find any parts retailer that has it in stock.

Any suggestions?  What do you guys think?   I am pretty upset at Rancilio.   For this much money they  made regular steel parts  while advertising stainless steel machine....

How bad is the rust?  Is a good sand and paint/powercoat not an option?

Rust  is not too bad yet...  the paint is peeling off and rust is visible and disgusting, but not structurally compromising.   Regular paint probably would not hold for long, but powder coating could be an option if I can find somebody to do it..  I wonder how much that would cost though, and whether finding a new base is a cheaper option

Mine is doing the same thing.  I just noticed because I am getting ready to sell it.  Just appears to be minor at this point.
