    can someone tell me what machine this PF will fit..?
    it doesnt even take LM 58mm baskets and the 58mm tamper also are  to big for this PF.. (or at least for the ridged basket)

    thanks,
    Juanjo

    Hi, for what it is worth, my Elektra semiautomatica has an angled handle, as it appears yours does. Can you tell why it wont go onto an E61 group head (eg lug size, or diameter, os something else?).

    Bummer it doesnt fit, it looks cool.

      More likely than not, the lugs will require some work. They may be too wide as well as too thick.

      Compare them to those on your standard group handle and then have someone make them match. A little careful work with a grinder will most likely solve it.

      Baskets do vary and if your tamper is largish, that will be the reason.

        It looks similar to a La Cimbali portafilter. They have angled ones like that.

          THANKS,

          I think Bill is right.. just made a little search on La Cimbali PFs and find this old add in CG http://coffeegeek.com/forums/members/buysell/320041
          it looks just like the one I have..

          now that I know is going to be easier to sell..

          Thanks again,

          Juanjo

            The angled handle isnt a guarantee it will fit a Cimbali.
            I have an angled one that came with my Expobar (e61).
