Detailed Commentary

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.

Buying Experience

Awesome Salvation Army thrift store find! for $9.99 plus tax.
