I bought this in Autumn 2019. It had one owner prior to me. I then passed it onto my son who used it extensively during lockdown when he was working from home. He has since changed employment and for the last 9 months has been back in the office. It is in very reasonable condition. There is a small ding on the left side of the drip tray, with a coffee bean next to it for scale. It has been run on a combination of RO water and since my son took it he just used our soft Northumbrian water!
It comes with a single spout pf and a bottomless that I believe was bought from Londiddly, and a spare handle since the bottomless has a wooden one. No issues to report. The seals were last changed two years ago by our very own Patrick and if I can find it, I will offer an @Norvin made seal changing tool for a few quid extra. They really make seal changes easy. Without one, it is a genuine struggle!
I do not have suitable packaging for it so would be reluctant to ship it. If anyone is interested, we can sort out the finer details like transport. I am based in Newcastle. You are most welcome to come and have a play. I have tried to describe it accurately. For anyone who does not know the history, these machines (the Mark 1’s) came out late 2012. They are a true lever using no electronic wizardry. It is just man versus machine!
I am going to source some packaging for this in the next couple of days. If I am able to, then as long as the buyer is able to arrange their own courier, thus taking responsibility for any problems in transit, 🚚 will be an option.
well priced this,
never knew you had a joey niche?
Cuprajake The ‘Joey’ is my sons. I bought a set before he really set up selling them, back in the day before I became a pariah….LOL
I will leave this here until Monday, then it is off to Ebay with it. SO, if there is anyone interested, now is the time!
think theres 80% off fees on ebay right now
Stick it on ebay now as well David, if there’s 80% off fees, it’s well worth it. There’s no rules here about it being listed in multiple places. You have priced it very competitively compared to what I have seen other Londiniums go for.
Sexy machine, good price. Shame I aint got any spare notes lying around.
As far as I can see, it is 80% off listing fees of £1, but still 13.8% final fee…….they really are robbers!
dfk41 mine says:
ah is it
prezes Cheers matey, someone else pointed that out to me so I pulled it from Ebay and re-listed it
Also on Facebook
I would be interested in the Norvin seal changing tool if you do manage to find it David and are willing to part with that separately.
Jollybean It has gone I am afraid. I remember now getting rid of it last year…..sorry
No problem David. Sounds a very useful tool though. I always kick myself for not getting one when Norvin was making them
Is there no one even remotely interested in this? I thought it was good value…..what do you think?
dfk41 I think for a Londinium which apparently (according to a certain person) hold their price so well, it’s cheap….especially when compared to a new one.
DavecUK I might even consider sensible offers from established forum members…….
I cannot guarantee this as it is at the discretion of another forum member, but if the machine was available for collection from the Preston area, would that help anyone?
