    Rancilio L4 Build

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi I have just picked up this old beauty for a load of firewood,
    But its in a bit of trouble, and I plan to rectify that hopefully fairly easily
    previous owner has had in his shed for 5/6 years since it was deemed a unviable repair by local shop in perth.
    the story was element problems or related

    any help on restoration and advice re descale and rebuild would be appreciated

    cheers James
