    Hey mate, nice machine. I presume it's plumbed only, no tank? GLWS

    Lovely machine!
    Lambros are getting very hard to come by. They make a beaut shot and are an iconic piece of espresso history. Good luck with the sale.

    (If I didn't have a Lambro already, I reckon I would be feeling a road trip coming on.....)

    Hi 'Wonder'

    Nice to see my old machine again, :-) I think RavenMad means does it have an onboard water tank, as opposed to the boiler. These are strictly plumb-in machines, or can be filled manually if you want to remove a fitting on top of the boiler each night and top it up

    Hey kofekitt,

    Thanks for clearing up my ignorance. I'm really good at using the machine, but obviously have no idea about the machine..

    (On another note what are you using at the moment kofekitt.)

    cheers

    Hi , still into the vintage levers when i can find them, but not able to plumb at the moment so this is on the bench, It's an Orchestrale Nota modified with a HX lever group (same Faema group as your Lambro)

    Good luck with the sale - They're a great machine

    If this Lambro is as good as it looks in the photos, it is an absolute bargain for someone who loves vintage levers!!! It was restored by kofekitt and that means a fabulous job..

    I used my Lambro on Tuesday and it made killer shots!

    Come on you closet lever aficianados...jump in. This one is the around price of a wrecked one that you could import from Italy complete with GST and international freighting etc. etc. if you could find one!

    Hi Wonder

    Do you have any photos of the rear of the machine?

    I recall kofekitt had done a superb job on the internals including adding insulation. That’s if my memory serves me correctly.

    Here's a pic from when i had it, There was no insulation on this one, you may be confusing it with one i sold in Sydney approx 2 years ago . I've been lucky enough to have 3 Lambro , i do like them

    If you end up with a Sydney buyer, i'm happy to give it a service if needed , or help with parts etc in the future
