    Bumpy E61 grips on a new portafilter?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I would really like to put the old faema bumpy grips on the portafilters for my Faema E98 S1 compact, but I am not sure that they would fit. Anyone know how the portafilter handles fit onto the portafilters?
    Also, are the old e61 PFs compatible with the newer groups or have they changed?

    Coffee parts list the modern re-pro faema bubble handles.Looks like it will only fit the old style square shaft portafilters;

    So youd have to buy the whole portafilter.The original E61 handles are hard to find, expensive and dont have the retaining clip, or take bigger baskets - i think 14g may be the limit

    But if I bought the whole portafilter it would fit a newer E98 compact group right?

    Im pretty sure it would.My faema compact (model b4 E98) portafilter fits my Faema Lambro, which also takes the old original E61 bubble portafilter.I think Faema uses the same lug pattern for all its commercial groups, whether they are E61 groups or not.A quick E-mail or phone call to Pedro at coffeeparts wouldnt hurt to check
