One of these has come up locally, but I can't find much info on any of the E98 models.

Anyone know about parts availability for this machine?  If the main board is kaput, is there a way to turn this from a full-auto to a semi-auto machine?

There is a Faema dealer in Toronto. They take machines for service and are able to get genuine Faema parts (Cimbali). E98 Compacts are quite common in bakeries, parts will be available.  There is also a Faema dealer in Montreal. I don't know if Montreal does parts and service.

Any machine can be converted to semi-auto. It's just a matter of rewiring it to work with your choice of powerboard.

Thanks for the response.  If the machine is still available I'll take a look at it.
