    Thanks
    I've had success with other machines using a high temperature buna rubber and leather punches. You would want a similar thickness. The leather punches are available inexpensively online. With that said, I've ordered some silicone gaskets from Sorrentina.

    Hello to everyone. I am a new member. How can I reprint the logo on my Atomic Brevetti Robbiati coffee machine? See attached photo which is self-explanatory. Thanks

    Hi everyone. I have recently purchased an atomic machine and am having a blast making coffee from it. I have noticed however a small hole in the tube going to the head that can be seen through the filler hole. I would have thought this would make it very difficult for the steam pressure to push the water up into the head and am not sure it is original... does anyone else's machine have this hole??

    Cheers Phil

    Yes that is normal, mine has it as well. Not sure what purpose it serves.

    Called out in the original patent "A small hole 31 is provided in the tube 22 opposite the closure 18".

    No mention of function.

    Thanks guys. I'm a bit tempted to temporarily block it off and see if it can pour a little faster.

    Hello Atomic friends - has anyone ever had JAVACATIONS do a number on their machine?

    Hello from California. I thought there was someone who offered to restore atomic coffee makers. I have one that for the most part, functions, but I'd love it to be polished up / new decal. Anyone you suggest?

    Welcome Chadwicksf and Duncsinclair. I have used JAVACATIONS a couple of times to refurbish Atomics, David Freeburn is in Brisbane QLD. I can recommend him, good work, - you should get a quote but that can only happen if you send it up to him. Have a look at his website and give him a call.

    Oops forgot to say, don't know anyone in the US - sorry!

    I'm curious if you ever tried blocking the hole, and if so, what was the result?

    Anyone have any experience of repairing a hole in the internal pipe? Looks like a previous keeper's put a nail through it!

    If it's the little one you can see from the water fill hole at the back, it's meant to be there.

    The black 'spot' on the internal pipe is the hole I'm talking about, is it supposed to be there?

    Yes that hole is supposed to be there. Its function is to do with having the water not reach the group until it is under sufficient temperature / pressure. It was discussed on a radio interview with the guy who developed the Otto. it actually is the comment that makes it obvious that he was just out to copy the Atomic rather than his marketing claim of developing a new coffee brewing machine that just happened to emulate the atomics form.
    I will see if I can turn up the interview, it was many years ago but things on the internet tend to just stay where they were left.

    Here it is:

    The part of the story about the hole in the atomic starts at about the 22 min mark. But it might be worth going back a few minutes more while Craig explains the "fluid delay valve" in the Otto. which is a slightly more sophisticated version of the hole in the Atomic.

    Amazing! Fascinating, I acquired an Atomic by chance and I think it probably needs considerable care and attention to bring it to functional. The major issue is the black knob off the back is broken. I'll post some images and see what people's thoughts are, maybe I'll get some advice!

    Nothing looks too bad on you machine.
    Bon Trading here in Sydney sells a replacement water fill knob for $24. Probably not much help for you over in Ireland but the parts seem to be available. You will probably also need a replacement gasket set so everything seals nicely

    Hey Aaron, thanks a lot for your comment. I have sent a message to Bon Trading to see if they can recommend a supplier a little closer to home, I'm imagining shipment could be quite expensive!
