      Not a sponsor - just a bloke who owns an espresso bar south of sydney.

                  I personally think the Martian is the real competitor to the Atomic- not the Vesuviana...

                    I thought it was pretty good tonight.
                    I just had a look at the extended stuff on ABC and it looked very much like what I saw on TV (admittedly I only caught it from the 1850s french vaccuum piece), was the extra stuff before that? Maybe Im not looking at the right link on the collectors site?
                    Either way I reckon it is worth looking at simply to affirm the fact that there are other nutters out there just like us.

                      no doubt- and I agree. That was a very nice looking Boema- looked like it had new groups fitted?

                        I have to agree with ya..

                        Coffee laboratory just up the road has a bigger and better collection of all things broken and working.. But then its what they may have chose to show of his collection... And good luck to him for stepping out there..... 

                        Hate those flashing Tampers.... So So not good  :-X  But the people running the show were impressed

                          Ahh but that is part of the point of collecting the things you love - there is the good the bad and the stuff that non lovers of said collection think is cool

                          Who wouldnt want a skull tamper!!

                            Oh indeed! Imagine pointing them out of all things? Hideous. I felt ashamed. I was just amazed the 50s expert didnt manage to mention James Bond at all... seems to be his main area of expertise.

                            But the collection was quite good- give him a break.

                              Thanks for the sainity check!

                              We had recorded the live show and I went back over it 3 times, I said to Paula "the groups caps are not from any Boema I know" and I noticed the shape of the group was square at the base (along with the missing handles on the boiler guage and the missing dome nuts on the groups).

                              I think it was a good collection, all things were fun, interesting, being used and were in price ranges that are reasonable for non museum collections.

                              Good on him for showing some of his gear I say!
