The element is very simple and there is also a thermostat, adjustable with a screwdriver

   

 

The machine can be dismounted as La Peppina

 

Can be used some of the gaskets for La Peppina.

 

The machine was purchased in France, thanks to  Lucio and  Francois. It is in good condition.

     

 

It was not easy to remove the body of the machine to access the piston, due to long inactivity and the deterioration of seals. The aluminum piston was also scratched due to rubbing against the walls

Note the thin o-ring at the base of the piston

The first shot for the time is waiting...
