I've been on a quest to find a local or even North American based facility that would convert older fine thread La Pavoni Europiccola elements from 220v to 120v.
The services offered in Hungary are great but I found the transaction time to be too long.
These are dual elements having two sets of coil rod heaters, 200w and either 600w or 800w.
Found a few places that would be willing to do the conversion but due to jig setup costs I'd be looking at $90 usd (120cad) for 6 units at a time.
I'm not able to provide 6 units at a time. Maybe 2 at best. That idea was put on hold.
After emailing many companies I received a call from a larger company with a foundry who would make the entire element with base
for $67.50usd (90cad) after the initial setup fee of $105usd ($140cad) with a 10 minimum order.Edit: He bailed on me and would not return my calls
I don't want to invest in 10 units that may not sell and put that idea on hold.
Thought I'd share my adventure.
Between order and chaos there is espresso.
