Not to seem a nit-picker......Actually Matt- the Cremina PF's ( OLY) have Un-ramped-Ears. They are flat.. The incline is in the group head. The Cremina PF will actually fit the La Pavoni ( 49mm)-

Hi Mo,
Actually, some of the older Cremina pfs are ramped and/or rockered. The NEWDS are rockered up ~.3mm at each end like the one that came with my '83 Cremina '67. Those will fit the LaPav. The latest PFs from Oly are have a very definite ramp. I just reworked one to fit a '67 for a gentleman. The are about .5mm too thick and 1mm too large in diameter of the ears. New one:

Cheers
Richard

espressme,

I can add that the pf for my 67 Cremina (91) does not properly lock in my "new" Millemium/2002.

Matt- et al- consider my humble pie "munched" -My Cremina fit well into my LP Pro and Euro- I didn't check out the rocker effect...... I shall be more careful in my assertions....

What a group it takes to keep me between the white lines :wink: Thanks team...

I think the true lesson here, as with all vintage machines, is that YMMV. Who knows what may have been done?
