Hello all ,
I guess this is the correct place to introduce myself.
I live in Northern NSW and run a very small cafe out of a rural community centre 2 days per week ( the town is so small that there is not enough business for anymore than 2 days of trading per week) I have just taken delivery of my Boema A3 2group lever machine and am starting a slow careful renovation. It's not going to be a ground up rebuild with everything glistening in 2 pack enamel and new chrome . It's going to be a replace all seals , clean boiler , and polish the existing finish type rebuild.
I look forward to meeting you all and especially would like to chat with those of you that are interested in lever machines or have experience doing renovations
Oh here are some images of my machine ImageUploadedByTapatalk1389570816.975904.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1389570880.012665.jpg
Gustopher good luck with your refurbishment and you as well boemalever. I hope to see updates of your progress as they are very interesting task you are taking on.
Hi boemalever and welcome to CS,
You're project machine looks great, good luck with it.
Just as a heads up there is a thread for new members....
but you seem to have got things up and running ok ;-D
enjoy the ride!
Welcome to CS boemalever! Good luck with your renovation and have fun ride here
I am in awe of you practical people who just embark on these projects like it was a simple as - well - making a cup of coffee.
How do you get on for parts in relation to older machines like this?
Are they readily available? Do you use the net to search for suppliers?
Rather than make this introduction thread all about levers how about starting a new thread in the appropriate forum for that discussion.
Toys! I must have new toys!!!
