Posted Sun Jun 23, 2013, 2:28pm Subject: [SOLD] Rancilio Silvia V3 w/PID & Vario
I've recently purchased a Quick Mill Vetrano, so I'm putting my Silvia (V3) and Vario up for sale. Both used for roughly the last 20 months, well taken care of, and in very good used condition. Silvia has some light scuffing on the surface of the drip tray and cup warmer, but otherwise, no major blemishes. I've installed the Auber PID kit (blue LED) with pre-infusion and steam control, which attaches to the outside of the case for reversibility and also a Wika pressure gauge in the front corner of the cup warmer (again to avoid cutting into the main casing). I've also fully insulated the boiler with closed-cell silicone foam and have a modified dispersion screen with counter-sunk screw. I'm fairly sure I have the original boxes for both, and all the original accessories for both. I descaled Silvia a couple times, just to be sure, but 99% of the water used has been much too soft to scale. Grindz used on Vario every few months, with the burr removed occasionally for a more thorough clean. No problems with either one so far, other than the rubber of the OPV piston/valve having deteriorated, and had to be replaced. Local pickup preferred, but unlikely, so shipping can be arranged at the buyers expense via Canada Post or Purolator. Any questions, feel free...
Asking $675 for Silvia and $325 for Vario.
Small picture of the setup is attached, but can email a variety of better photos if interested. Tamper not included, as I need it :)
