Subject: Gaggia - Identify this model in the picture
 

Hi,

I picked this machine which looks to be a professional series at an auction. I searched gaggia-usa support and found no relevant information.

On the back is a plaque from a company no longer in business. It has the below information, which I do not think is correct.

If anyone is able to identify the Gaggia model in the picture it would be greatly appreciated.

Information on the back plague:

Model: CSA 2gr Std. A/F
Serial #: 4491
Electrical 220
Data: 4000w

ABC Inc.
9063 San Fernanado Rd.
Sun Valley, CA 91352
213 768 6300


Thank you,
Paul

I wish I could help but I did have to reply. My parents had an RV repair shop just down the street from there. I never saw ABC but then I never looked. Their shop was at 8340 Old San Fernando rd, Sun Valley. (just across the RR tracks from San Fernando road!) The shop is gone now, a giant aircraft company bought the whole block of businesses and plowed them down. There is a huge wherehouse there now.

Now that I have that out of my system, what is it you want to know about the machine? It is a commercial two group, remote pump machine. The parts are pretty common among most all commercial machines so that isn't an issue and the mechanics should be fairly straight forward.

OK, you got me going. I looked the address and it is just down the street a few blocks from my most FAV surplus store in the world! Apex Electronics, dont let the name fool you they have just about EVERYTHING, seriously, from 1930 trucks buerried under tons of scrap to aircraft drop tanks, electronic testing gear to motors, the business covers about an acre in the middle of the city!

OH, btw, the address for your machine comes back as.

Atlas Banner is a business listed in Others with locator is 9063 San Fernando Rd, Sun Valley, CA 91352. If you want to get driving directions of Atlas Banner you can use the map & directions below. You can also call this business via phone number (818) 252-1414.

OH, btw, the 213 area code, that was a long time ago.

Sorry ?:D

omg. The Bay Area has a few places along these lines (Mike Quinn's came closest, but closed a while back.) Weirdstuff and HSC in Sunnyvale some of few left in the area, but I could spend days in Apex, and I not even an EE, or even vaguely adept at electronics fab.

And yes, I'm interested to learn the history of your Gaggia... :D
