This is the kind of thing that I look for in the coffee world. There's just something about these little sputtering, fussy machines that really get me going! I've been a fan of Paul's web site for a while and I really respect the work that he does. I stand to learn a lot from these rebuilds that he documents. I hope that we will be reading a lot more about these fascinating rebuilds often.

Drove from Holland to almost 100 miles below Paris to pick this one up. An early Faema e61. With gold accents on the body. Taking it apart was easy. Put all parts in seal bags, labelled them... made lots of pics during that. A few pics what it looked like when it arrived and where it is now. Best news is, the nuts and bolts of the boiler are loose and seem to come off easily.
