    WTB: Faema E98/La Cimbali Junior portafilter

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Picked up a Faema E98 Compact A1 at the scrapyard on the weekend but it was missing the portafilter.
    I've got heaps of spare portafilters but apparently not one to fit the E98 group head.

    Any portafilter from a Faema E98 machine or a La Cimbali Junior machine should be suitable. Willing to pay up to $40 for it.

    Maybe. Iíll have a look and let you know. The lugs are offset right?

    Thanks, the lugs should be straight at 9 and 3 oclock, like an E61 portafilter.

    Iíve only got a couple of fairly well used ones. The LM one would fit as Iíve ground down the lugs and it fit my Boema nicely when I had it. Not sure about the SAB one. From memory it didnít fit my Boema. Happy to part with one or both of them for just the cost of shipping, but Ďbuderim11í Ďs one above looks like a better option.

    Thanks Leroy, buderim's one looks to be right as it has the thicker lugs. The difference is the E61, Boema and I assume LM use thinner lugs at about 5mm but this is way too thin for the Faema. I wouldn't be comfortable putting so many spacers under the seal to make it work. I'll let you know if I'd still be needing them though.
