By wifely decree, something has to go:
Rancilio Silvia, unmodified, excellent condition, well looked after and regularly maintained. Just about the only signs that the machine isnít brand new are a few of the usual micro scratches on the cup warmer where cups have been placed, not even noticeable unless youíre looking for them. Comes complete with original box, manual, all original accessories and a choice of portafilter. Also, included will be a maintenance kit, brand new still in packet consisting of replacement shower screen and group head gasket. Iíll throw in a brand new in-reservoir water softener cartridge as well. Reluctant sale so would like it to go to a good home. - SOLD
La Cimbali espresso grinder in good used condition still looks great in a domestic environment. This model is the Cadet which is slightly larger that the Junior but has the same features and also an automatic option which can be removed if required. The bean hopper has a constant cross section for the top 57mm so if required, the hopper could quite easily be shortened by 55mm and still retain the original lid. The current burrs seem OK but I could put in a replacement pair if required, HappyDonkey quoted me about £20 for a new set. The current model is around £400-£500 new. - SOLD
Will sell both for £310 plus shipping or £220 + shipping for the Rancilio and £120 + shipping for the La Cimbali.
Please donít hesitate to ask if you would like further details or pictures.

Well my grinder came from France so I don't imagine England would have been too much more $$$.....anyway I should have picked up on the voltage before I posted, sorry to have wasted your time. I hope you sell it soon.
It's a great grinder and the price you are asking is more than fair.
