Microcimbali v. 1.0

refurbish the first model of microcimbali is particularly difficult, because to remove the piston, is necessary unscrew the base of the group that holds the portafilter. Besides the need for an ad hoc tool, because the support is in brass and the boiler in aluminum, usually it forms a single body impossible to unscrew. The only solution is to have two boilers, so you can crack the basis of the group of first boiler freeing the thread of the boiler, and crack the other boiler taking off the base of the group
