!!!SOLD!!! - WTT 58mm Naked Portafilter for 49mm Naked Portafilter.
Wanting to trade my 58mm naked portafilter (as used on an Expobar Brewtus) for a 49mm naked portafilter to suit an Olympia Cremina. If yours is a particularly fancy model, I'd be to make up the difference.
Ps not wanting to sell at this point but valued at $80.

Tried to trade this 58mm naked portafilter in for a 49mm naked portafilter but alas, no joy.
As this portafilter was gifted to me by Coffee-A-Roma I can't in good conscience sell it, so I offer it here to any CSer willing to donate $50 to FairCrack. I'll throw in registered postage to anywhere in Australia.
Ps I bought an Expobar Brewtus (aka Expobar Minore) and a Mazzer Mini E from Coffee-A-Roma and couldn't be happier with their service. I particularly remember Julie, who effortlessly hoisted the Brewtus' unwieldy 30 plus Kg out of my car boot when I took it in for servicing. She managed it with a cheery nonchalance that belied her slight frame. Perhaps a super hero disguised as a mild mannered shop owner?
"49mm naked portafilter to suit an Olympia Cremina".
You love that Cremina and it's a lifetime keeper, (same as mine).
It deserves the best naked Portafilter available irrespective of price.
The Olympia originals look like a work of art, (and so match the Cremina).
In hind site, wish I had one to compare.
However Gabor from Naked sells really good ones that I can vouch for, (been using them for two years).
They are a very good precise fit,(where its needed because of the pressures involved) and are made of really high quality stainless.
They take the 18G rimless Elektra baskets really well.
If you ask him Gabor will even leave the machined Naked logo off the side.
I'd also chime in and recommend caution with the evil bay cremina naked pf units.
They're close to the original but not an exact fit and prone to both leaks and tearing you pf gasket.
I was given one by my wife with the best of intentions.... it's now relegated to the back of the pantry somewhere never to be used again
Well that's my $0.02 anyway.
Hoggy42 is the new, hopefully happy, owner of the naked portafilter.
I'm looking forward to receiving it I've been wanting a naked portafilter for a while and this seems like a good reason to pick one up.
