            Congrats @Pauly404 - I was admiring that one last week... looks even better in the metal than I was expecting!

              Yep, this came with these PFs. They match the lever.

                I would've expected the ones that fully match the lever like the ones that come with the Technika/Mechanika machines

                  My mistake - the pic has my old PF. This did come with the matching PFs (ie, with the SS handle ends. They look awesome !

                    I'm curious with these handles whether the bakelite (or whatever it's made of) could be removed without damage, and a wooden inner could be made up, capped by the stainless steel end. That's totally something I would do with my machine if I could!

                      I'm pretty sure I've seen some ECM handles with very nice aftermarket wooden and acetal inserts @readeral - perhaps on one of the US forums. I'll see if I can dig up the thread.

                            Are you sure this should be in the 'mid range machine' forum? ;-P Haha

                              Good point - it's not mid range
