    What did I just purchase?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Was not sure which board to post this, but readers of this board have helped me so well with the Rancilio, good place to start.

    I just purchased these two things from the auction site and wondered if anyone can suggest what they are? *Any thoughts/ details would be appreciated.

    I had a laugh. I did see them listed for $10 but I dont think the seller even knew what he was selling. Seriously what did you pay for them?

    They look like an urn or something. I cant see how they would dispense coffee.

    If anything you have a talking point when you mates pop around for a coffee. ;D

    You know me too well! I paid $66, but when I contemplate what is under the gold spray paint, it maybe interesting! Ummm, probably stainless steel like at the school canteen, or maybe gauges???

    Time (or with luck CS peeps) will tell!

    Going by the Working Pressure stamped on the Boiler above, Id reckon theyre Steam Generators although at 2.0Bar, youd want to be pretty handy texturing milk.... :o

    Theyre older model Haros steam boilers. You may possibly find stainless under the spray paint. Theyre still pretty common...

    Haros still operates out of Tassie, so you should be able to get parts if you decide to use them.

    Behmor Brazen - $249 - Free Freight
    Ha- I thought that and then remembered the ACCC (or whatever they are called now) and their anti-collusion act. *But then I remembered we do not have the money QANTAS and Visi do, so my opinion is Secret Sqirrel here we come. *

    On the auction site I will be C***I and you can be... -)
