I have miles of this stuff KK. I fairly recently travelled to Binasco to see the MUMAC museum at the La Cimbali factory. Honestly one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I will dig out some highlight lever shots and post them here when I get some more time.

Oh. Beautiful levers.
Here’s a Profitec Pro 800 I recently had powdercoated in matt black:

Awesome pics guys, have never owned a lever (a fellow let me play with one at MICE last year which was fun), but have always admired them. And I've never been to cafe that uses lever machines either!

Here is some photos of the Lever section of the MUMAC museum. Actually it was all a bit overwhelming, I didn't really take as many photos as maybe I should.

Here's a few more.  The Guys at La Cimbali were so nice, someone spent a few hours walking around the museum with us explaining things. They also showed the new E71 and made us about a dozen coffees to show us its various features. My wife is not used to that level of caffeine and completely bugged out and had to spend the rest of the day in a darkened hotel room.

This thread has lay dormant for quite some time. Like an old lever machine sitting out the back of an old cafe.  I have been a member of this site for quite a while but haven't posted for a long time  so here seemed as good as anywhere to burst back onto the online stage.
I thought id start with a nice three group Eureka I found in a cafe in Paris, unfortunately they weren't using it and the coffee that I did buy was dreadful.

nice.looking machine shame it's not being put to good use !

Here’s my lever, it’s only a baby compared to some of the works of art in this thread. It’s a 1976 model that I purchased in reasonable working condition.







I fully restored it about 5 years ago including new seals, stripped paint back to bare metal including the badge.



Now she sits alongside my daily driver Giotto Evo and gets the occasional chance to pull a shot as well.
Hoping to find something bigger to restore at some point.

Lovely Pictures Aaron!!!

Lovely little Pavoni also FG!!!  I have a 1996 Pavoni Pro which provides excellent service when my Quickmill Lever needs servicing or when we're out and about!!

My Mini Gaggia. Not the easiest machine to pull consistent shots from - its probably more about my sloppy technique than anything else - but I find its less forgiving than a smaller diameter PF.

Not sure what I need to do to post pictures into the post rather than thumbnails.

Nice machines Aaron and Fg1972  :thumb:

Not sure what I need to do to post pictures into the post rather than thumbnails.

Nice little Gaggia

When one presses the thumbnail it will automatically expand to full size
It’s how the site manages “uploaded images “

However when images are linked
The full size is shown
