hey everyone, been doing some research and seems as though there are 3 versions on the Rubino. i have what i belive to be the 2nd version and have restored a few of the 3rd version but am still trying to get good pics or find a 1st series machine. the 2nd version is the one I listed below, would love more info if anyone has more. mine below is before and after resto and with the cimbali disco volante grinder

Wow. I am no help to you, but congratulations on a beautiful restoration. That grinder is fantastic as well - I find older machines so much easier to come across than vintage grinders.

ID plate on machine says rubino so definitely series 2 rubino, your rubino you photo is series 3. the grinder was originally chrome like cimbali museum

Bonjour Andrea,
I have the same model of Cimbali Rubino shown in your picture, and I'm looking forward to the body panels screws: they are not in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_metric_screw_thread but in UK (or US) standard (don't know exactly which one) and I can't find them anywhere here in Italy... Have U (or others readers) any tips or online store where I can buy them?? MERCI'!!!!
