  • Couple of old units I am off to look at.

    Just thought I might share ;D

    Off to have a closer look in the morning... Will be getting a few bits and playing with my sandblaster... Going to try about 3 different compounds and see what works best... As he has had some quotes but not happy with the level of pitting etc. I use glass beads and some fair results using baking powder.... Sand and garnet are for heavy work...

    Then, the owner can go an get them done by a pro and understand the differences in the end result...

    I can only assume the restoration will take some time but will be worth it 8-) I may be able to assist with some of the electrics ??? The gas stuff will be done by a very experiences gas fitter...

    Will try to post a pic or two along the way.. Plus there are a couple more that also very interesting...

    But as they say... Proof is in the cup; thus it may be a while before we can confirm...

    Is the owner planing to use these or cleaning them up for display ?

        Had a first hand look today and picked up a bit of stuff for my self

        Some will just be for display and left almost as is... The biggesr gas fired units (not shown) could be used for small local batches Time and quality of the systems will tell.

        OH and an extra.. That I have always liked...

        KK ya got to drop around... Lets do a Saturday some time :-)

        Sorry about the quality - IBrick

              I love the look of older roasters!

              Are there many of them lying around in sheds in Australia, or is it a matter of importing from Italy etc?

              Cheers.
