    Looks pretty rustic to me! would others care to comment.

    I like this aesthetic, it could do with some refinement but it's a work in progress I assume.

    I'm planning on a similar build combining the chassis of an old Grimac commercial machine with the insides of a 2 group Wega Atlas. Going for exposed E61 groups and exposed internals with big levers and plenty of valves and gauges.
    I also want to add a steam whistle which would be neat.

    Each man to his own I guess but not something I'd like nor be allowed to have in the kitchen

    Cheers.

    I was going to ask "is it steam powered" but that would be pretty dumb I guess!

    Horses for courses Yelta, can't see it on granite or marble designer benchtop, but for say an open corrugated iron shed, where a new Rocket or Profitec screams 'steal me', this might be perfect. Very low chance of it being stolen. Would happily have it in my shed.
