Olympia Chiasso Express (sn 222)

second version - november 1962

 

The machine, marketed by Olympia Chiasso is analogous to the Europiccola second version and is dated November 1962

 

Has serial number 222/3 engraved under the base and the number 2288 engraved on the group.

  

 

Compared to europiccola has a double switch and the sub-base metal

     
         

The initial conditions were disastrous, with the brass sleeve and the piston broken and the portafilter missing.

 

 

After thorough cleaning and completion with missing parts, here is the machine ready for assembly.

 

group parts

   

 

wiring and brackets for mounting the sub-base

 

power cord removeable

 

 

The end result is very satisfactory.
