It took a year to source parts and make gaskets etc but here is my first espresso machine resto. It started out as Junk with a seized pump and badly scaled boiler that had been stores till it was full of green slime. The solenoids were the hardest to source as they are american pipe thread.
now I just need to start practicing on my employees to see if I can get some good shots!
