    Where to buy a complete lever group (just the group)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,
    Does anyone have some good ideas for where I can get a complete lever group? I am starting up a project, I want to make a 1 group lever machine from parts, but I dont have a group.

    The only ideas I have at the moment are:
    1) Buy a cheap/ugly lever machine. But I am not that patient, and it is too difficult to find.
    2) Buy a conti group head from conti spare parts. Will cost around 300Euro plus shipping from memory.

    All input would be appreciated....

    go to the home barista website- to the lever forum. Post this there. There may be someone with what you want.

    Given that the group is the heart of the machine- starting out with a brand new one for 300 euro sounds quite good.

    There was some mad guys from Melbourne who made patterns and molds and built some ;) There is a thread in that same section on HB. They actually made replica Gaggia 1 groups. http://www.home-barista.com/levers/f...up-t15869.html

    At 300 Euro I reckon go for it too. About the cheapest lever on evilbay in the last year or 2 has been $800+ for a couple of fairly ratty 2 groups (which I own one of them* ::) )
