I was a little quiet for a bit, but here is a teaser pic for the first 2022 machine purchase 8) . Pascal/zeb was kind enough to allow me the opportunity to acquire his unrestored 1 group Marte. I am getting quite excited, the funds were sent and this new acqusitition is in its crate awaiting pickup from TNT/FedEx. I've been wanting a Faema machine with the awesome curved group, and this Marte is complete. The parts not present in the photo are wrapped individually for the journey to me from France. What is very interesting about this particular Marte is its age. It is the youngest Marte I have seen yet, from January of 1957!

Very nice!! My Faema Lambro also came from Pascal and I loved using it (and looking at it) every second for the last 9 years. It's been my daily driver. You got to love a vintage 60 year old machine that is super reliable, gorgeous to look at, pulls amazing shots, a breeze to maintain and has every part and gasket available.

This turned up and I couldn't leave it alone.

I doubt anyone here could leave it alone if one of those turned up! :wink:
Very nice add-on to your collection!
Cheers,

I have been looking at those since they first appeared and wondered what the downside was with them. They sure tick off all the boxes for simplicity and similar control to a LaPavoni and if you have the later model you get a temperature setting.

The CT-1 also has temperature control, the CT-2 is just a bit easier with a larger scale. :D
