Posted Sat Aug 17, 2013, 9:25am Subject: One or Two Caravels for Sale-NO LONGER FOR SALE
]]I've decided to sell one or two of my Caravels and a bottomless portafilter and tamper set I bought from Martin on HB. Both machines are 220 with European plugs. The VAM model looks like the special paint one 1.1 version referenced here:
I bought this VAM model about 6-8 months ago. It arrived in good shape mechanically but was fairly dirty on the outside....way past what I would call patina. I cleaned it up but stopped after I realized I was removing paint. This one came with a single basket. The lever handle has a small gouge.
I bought the second Caravel about a year ago. This one came with a double basket. It's bright red. Cosmetically, there are a few small nicks in the paint and a couple of small indentations on the silver base. I installed a new portafilter gasket and bottom piston seal. I tried to change the rest of the seals with a kit I received from the previous owner but they didn't seem to fit. I will send these extra seals with this machine if someone would like to buy this machine.
This red one looks like the Version 2.0 referenced here:
Both machines yield lovely shots and are in very good condition. I can easily take apart and put together either machine. The build quality on both machines is also very good. The portafilter on the VAM machine is significantly deeper that the Version 2.0. I will be sending a new portafilter gasket that I obtained from Kurt on HB with each machine but the current portafilter gasket on each machine does not need to be changed. The bottomless portafilter fits either machine.
I am offering the VAM machine at $400 shipped*; the Version 2.0 machine at 375 shipped* and the bottomless portafilter and tamper set at $165 shipped* I can email more pictures of either machine. The attached picture shows a size comparison to a Comocafe.
