Rancilio L4 Build
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
What a wonderful find,even at the cost of a load of firewood,I'd like to get my hands dirty inside that!
I'm just plain jealous, keep the story line coming,any help.. I'm only too pleased to provide, if able.
PS,last rancilio I moved on was a dead three group volumetric, yours would be good fun!
