Had to replace ULKA Vibratory Pump Model H5 with ULKA EAP5 Got parts from a dead Home Machine. They all have very similar parts some higher quality than others. Really not much more to say here I pulled 3 nice shots off of it and made my wife a Mocha and sent her off to church choir. I know this is irrelevbant but I need to fill out atleast 100 words for this review. That should do it! Nope not quite yet. If you havent checked out my profile I sing Opera full time but in my down time I collect vintage gear and well heck anything that I think is cool. So if you know of anyone on my area that needs to off load some stuff let me know.
Awesome Salvation Army thrift store find! for $9.99 plus tax.
