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.
