I certainly do Dave……
Thanks for confirming. I will keep you posted on funds, I appreciate this is well priced given the amount you have spent on it but if there is any flexibility it would be appreciated.
Harryporter23 I can certainly put the price up for you if thats what you mean!
dfk41 HAHA - no please don’t. Where are you based?
Harryporter23 Based in Newcastle matey……how about yourself?
dfk41 down near Bristol so will most certainly be a postage job.
What is your email - might be better if we message via there
Harryporter23 When you have the funds matey, drop me a line on here and we can see what is what
dfk41 it won’t be long, maybe next week.
dfk41 funds are sorted, what is your email address?
I’m very surprised that it didn’t sell 5 minutes after you reduced the price David. Absolute bargain…. I would imagine someone could buy it and sell it on at a profit weeks, or a year later.
DavecUK I think the drip tray rust scared a few people, but that’s pretty standard with La Pavonis (bad design on their part…) and can be fixed (or just buy a new base for only £80 brand new). If you see rust on any other coffee machine I bet people would hesitate.
Sham I do not know much about these machines. Are the bases all interchangeable? Is there a way of ageing the machine without taking it to bits? Is there a link available to somewhere that sells these bases please?
dfk41 You can check the age by popping off the bottom (need security screwdrivers I think). Here they sell a black or chrome one. You can easily change them but just double check what model yours to check if new parts fit. There’s loads of guides on the internet as La Pavonis are very easy to take apart fully and reassemble.
I have had a pavoni and actually this is about the standard price for a rusty model. I know the user paid an extraordinary amount of money to have it done up but working is working unfortunately. Has the rust carried through underneath?
Jlmartin Hiya Jim, can you explain to me how I can get to the underneath so as I can take a look to see if it has rusted all the way though? I have some photos of before it was painted and I am pretty sure it was just surface rust
dfk41 Why not repost the photo of the base before you painted it with rust stop hammerite or whatever it was. It did look like just surface rust.
Justin! Of course if you take an m20 bit undo the screw and just take the plastic base off and look underneath. Maybe not worth replacing the base as would just increase costs.
I wish I needed, or could justify a La Pav 🙁
Looking at the switch and the water level indicator on the side, if it’s a premil than it’s no older than 1990s.
