Does anyone here have any information about the Brugnetti ‘Delta’ lever?
I’m looking at possibly purchasing one, however struggling to find information and specs on this lever.
I’m particularly interested in any experiences with the machine and any common traits/faults/comparison to other levers or recommended ‘mods’
(Link at the top for reference to machine)

Reason: eBay link removed
You might want to read the forum rules about posting links to ebay. I'd remove it before someone else does.
Site sponsor the Coffee Machinist (Rick Bond) has restored older Brugnetti levers in the deep dark past. Not sure whether he has done much with newer ones.
All good, mods beaten me to it - sorry!
Hopefully Rick can chime in!
Better to contact him direct I'd reckon...

Thanks Hamburglar, I agree, however it’s been offered to me at quite a discount below asking price as I agree at closet to $4k opens up the market for a new machine.
I think I saw a similar machine on Gumtree previously (not 100% sure if it's the same model) and inquired about the details. From memory, the spec was something like a 6L boiler and the hydraulic is a heat exchanger (HX) system - so a commercial-duty HX lever. Requires plumbing in (or easy with a flojet +RO tank). If you don't mind the large boiler size, it's probably worth a test drive/demo.
FWIW, I have a vintage Brugnetti Aurora lever built in the 1970s that is still running like a champ today. It also has a HX hydraulic and the same plumb-in requirement but a 4.5L boiler. Perhaps they are very different under the hood as 40 years have gone past since (different designers/engineers etc).
Brugnetti might be making these levers to orders as I don't see much of their kind around.

And that Faemina Baby looks so cute hiding under the counter.
Yep, quite possibly the same machine, it's been up for ages at varying price points, not sure if it was the same as a Sydney based store selling it.
