Would it be possible for the Lever Forum to have a Gallery sticky of all the lever machines? If we own/owned the machines there would be no copyright issues. I think it would be helpful to all us LeverLovers to be able to see machines referred to in the forums quickly, without the need to do websearches or forum searches. What do you all think?

I'll play. Here are some pics of my early 60's gaggia montecarlo. I am told that this was produced solely for the USA/AUST market. Mechanicals are same as for gaggia americano. Body is fibreglass and the customer side is backlit.

I have some other old faema and gaggia machines but this is probably my favourite at the moment.

Peacecup,
when Latte Jed was here in Portland we spoke about the book that is available form that website. Chaz had ordered one and was a little disapointed in it. He felt it was long on translated text descriptions and short on showing photos of the collection. It sure looks like the collection is breathtaking!!

Just arrived this week: a rebuilt Sama Export, aka Ponte Vecchio Export.
Rebuilt by Joe at the Good Coffee Company in Seattle. Guaranteed to work
fine ("Just give us a call if you have questions or problems..."). Nice!

It is great to be able to use it with one hand. It is balanced quite well.

This Faema Urania was on the *Bay and taken off. I asked question as to price and can't afford the $2400 delivered. I don't know seller at all, but think it's a beautiful machine.
