      Yes- sure is....

      This is the lever I have been sworn to secrecy on... They have some other irons in the fire as well which will shake thing up a bit. Can't wait to start then next thread! :-X

        Good to see some boundaries being pushed (or harking back to the 50's 60's when the machine was a piece of art). Not quite sure I like the front pointy panel but love the boiler and steam lever.

          Is it a mortal sin to be jealous of another's lever?

          Very cool Chris, its gorgeous.. the tap/steam paddles look a bit obscured by the front shield but maybe it's just the photo.. what group?

            Great to see machine designers thinking outside the square (or cube).

            Looks awesome, Chris, both futuristic and retro at the same time.

            Looking forward to a play when it's on your bench.

            Is it a 58mm group?

            Might even take one skiing............ :-D

              I like some of that, I think.
              Not sure on the star trek emblem though...

                Do you know any of the specs Chris? Looks gorgeous but even bigger than my Achille...

                  I think it's a 58mm CMA group....

                  I'll post specs as soon as I have them...

                      Yes, certainly eye catching but not sure it would be for me. Would like to see it on the bench

                        Hi Dave,

                        No pricing as yet. I assume probably Pompeii price bracket due to the fabrication and finish- but I've been wrong before!

                        It will be available in good time for Santa

                        Chris

                          No Chimney here in Rocky but does he deliver to the door step instead??
                          Keep me informed of price please Chris, but I will need to run it past the Leader of the Opposition....
                          I am coming to MLB in Nov so will have to see if I have time to visit!
                          Cheers

                            Certainly looks interesting. Is this a double boiler? PID like a Nuova Pompeii?

                              One boiler heat exchange- as per the single boiler in the graphic ...I am assuming pressurestat

                              At the moment, CS knows everything I know about the machine- so I'll update with further information as it comes to hand....
