Had this sitting around for a couple months, finally found some time to start working on it



Here it is ready for chrome, going to be about a month



Could really use some help with a couple parts, I don't think this is the original lever and I'd like to find an original.

Also, does anyone know if the "horny" faema tamper that nuova ricambi sells is the same as the one on my machine?

Parts should be back from chrome in a couple weeks. Just wondering if anyone could help me with ordering some parts from nuova ricambi..... Thanks

Have you tried the German site? They sell to end consumers if its the B2B problem you have with most parts suppliers.

Yes thank you for the reply. So there is no way of ordering from the us site if I am not a business??

Can't comment specifically about the US site - I am UK based. I have however purchased direct from .de.

I believe Vaneli's in CA can get Faema parts for you. At least that was the case a couple of years ago when I was rebuilding my Faemina. There are 3 Faema pages on their website, each with about 10 'sub-pages':

https://www.vanelis.com/Parts.cfm

edit: I just emailed them about a Faema part I need for another rebuild and they do indeed stock Faema parts, and can order whatever isn't in stock, directly from Faema.

I see you're in Ontario. Where did you pick up this Velox?

I missed one on Kijiji in Nova Scotia just as I was leaving Moka Pots and looking for another machine. When I had found out what it was it was already gone. :cry:

Thanks grog, I'm going to go check out their site now.

I actually found it in Italy and it shipped to my sister in Rome. I brought it home last time I visited.

Can't wait to get it all done and mounted :D the chrome plater is taking longer than expected but he came highly recommended so I don't mind waiting
