A bit of digging on the La Pavoni web site shows Europiccola machines with non-chrome bases like this dating from the 1960's, so it may well need work. Any info on parts availability for one that old? Bill On 6/7/07, Bill Morgan wrote: <Snip>
I haven't seen the pix to which you refer, but "high 3-figure price ($999)" would be outrageous, mid 3-figure price ($555) might not be bad for a used, working machine. A 30(+)yr old machine is Not operational, and no part of it has survived intact, except maybe the Euro plug. It is a steal, if you don't have to supply the Vaseline. How about a nice Edsel? You'd have the only one on your block - in your garage. May well need work. Cheers -RayO, aka Opa! Keep fishing.
