As you can see this nice VINTAGE ESPRESSO MACHINE comes in used condition, cannot be "new" from 1964. There are minor signs of metal wear and spots due to age. However, a wonderful artefact reminiscent of the past times.
Look at the photos to see all components of the espresso machine, check markings of authenticity and the item's state.
She comes in perfect workorder restored in our repair company from scratch with new heating coils 120 Volt.
She needs a smooth operator:
There is as oiriginal no thermostate on this machine, she has two heating coils, one with 200 Watt, the other one with 800 Watt. The 200 Watt to keep temperature, the 800 Watt to spike it up for steam and to jump start.
To the left is the switch on/off rocker. To the right to a rocker switch to change from 200 Watt heating coil to 800 Watt heating coil.
Reaching operating temperature and boiler pressure you need to switch from 800Watt to 200 Watt heating coil with the right rocker switch.
There is no high limit switch to avoid overheating of the heating coils. It is you! The operator is in charge!
There is a water show glass in the front you see it also with the strong spring for the extraction. If you run out of water, it is your failure!
The spring is strong and the extraction excellent.
