Finally, after having a sleeping Faema Velox set aside for many years (Made in Spain!) I managed to put it all to a working state.
Searching a lot the net I could not find what is the best suggested suitable portafilter for this machine.
Currently I have the original and I assume there are better options and also a naked portafilter that can work well.
Please recommend which one works best for you.

Another concern is this: What works best for you in regards of dosing and tamping?

Thanks much,

Use that as your starting base and you may need to play with the gaskets to get the lock in to where you want.

Dose and tamp are the same with any lever machine.
