After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.
Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.
Ponte Vecchio Lusso - anyone got a spare set of seals laying around?
Just wondering if anyone having owned a PV Lusso might have a set of 3 piston seals and a Group head Gasket/seal laying about wanting themselves to get back into some coffee production activity .. for purchase, of course. :thumb:
Just putting it out there
Ive sent Jack from Sorrentina an email but haven't heard back from him as yet. No idea whether he is still in the biz??
I haven't been in touch since 2013. Otherwise I'll have to import some from Italy
Apparently, according to Jack .. back in the day, there was a problem with the seals in some of the 2 Group machines he sold due to a bad batch.
He contacted Ponte Vecchio in Italy to get some replacements sent out. As it turned out .. the seals sent were the ones for the 1 Group machines that didn't fit the 2 Group that he'd sold.. so I figure he'd probably still have the seals that I'm after still laying around ... if only I could contact him.
Unfortunately, there is no Phone number on his website.
I have made enquiries in Italy .. and asked about the seals being different .. their reply was that the 1 & 2 Group seals are the same.
I'd hate to get a set from Italy and finding out they didn't fit :head:
I have a Gaggia Baby in the cupboard needing a repair. It's like brand new but something is wrong with it. Have thought on more than a few occasions .. I should get that fixed so that when my PV Lusso is out of action ... I'd have a spare to fall back on.
Shame I didn't follow through with that ... cause it would come in handy .. right about now ----> another one of those ---> :head:
