As a new member of toomuchcofee I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Repko and I live in the Netherlands, close to the German border.
I am an Aerial Photographer (navigator) for a Dutch Mapping Company, but try to be freelance photographer on the subjects Social Documentary and Portrait Photography as much as possible.
Recently I have bought a Faema E61 with 2 group heads on Ebay. I have been looking for a long time for this machine, but now I was lucky enough to win one for a reasonable price.
My Faema is basically the same machine MEMBER E61 has, and he has also introduced me to toomuchcoffee.com. As soon as I have received my machine from France, I will start refurbishing it. I can use ANY help from all you E61 experts, since this is my first machine.
I also got an old Fiorenzato Mestre Grinder last week for free from the bar where I drink often. Spended a day fixing the machine, and it's in perfect in perfect unharmed condition now.
Well, that's it for now. Hope to share some usefull knowledge soon.

Hi repko,

Looks like you've got your hands full! Nice job on getting the grinder.

Hmm... seems like all that's left now is getting a roaster :twisted:

Ah hah, another fellow photographer (though I'm not a pro), I just spent the weekend standing by my Pentax 67 waiting for the sun to come out, when I'd have had a more productive time standing by my roaster!
Anyway, welcome! Couple of recommendations before you start work... cafiza by urnex could well be useful for cleaning off any old coffee oils if the machine hasn't be used recently and a good can of compressed air for getting rid of coffee grounds and dust that seem to get everywhere... it's much easier to work on a clean machine. You may then want to read the thread "favourite" accidents before you start! Forewarned is forearmed as they say ;-)
