Posted Tue Feb 25, 2014, 9:29pm Subject: WTB: Accessories for a Silvia, Bottomless PF, Basket, Tamper etc.
Guys!! I just procured a Version 1 Rancilio Silvia locally off of Craigslist. I've been using a Starbucks Barista for a couple years now, and while I wasn't really looking for a Silvia, I decided to drop $200 on this one and try it out. Right off the bat, I need to totally update many of my accessories. Below is a list of things I'm looking for a good deal on. I know I can buy these things new, and I've found all the "parts" that I need online. But I was hoping some generous soul would help me out with a few extra things that I would like to have, but would rather not buy brand new. Here they are:
Double Spout PF
Pressure Gauge for PF
Obviously, the above items should fit a Rancilio Silvia, which has a 58mm portafilter/group head. And in case I didn't already emphasize it enough, I'm looking for a good deal on these items. Preferably someone with a generous spirit that would like to help out a newbie.
Since this is a v1, I plan to sell off some of my previous stuff to help pay for some upgrades. I plan to update the steam wand, OP Valve, and add a PID in the not-too-distant future. It will be my first attempt at working on a machine, and I will do my best to add photos in the Mod/Restoration Section of the forum.
Cheers for now!
