Fully restored Faema Urania second series 1 group lever espresso machine.
Every restoration starts with inventarisation and after that disassembly. After the disassembly the frame of the machine was sandblasted to remove all the old paint, rust and grime. It got coated with a double layered powdercoating. The next step was re-chrome plating of the original body parts and castings. The procedure of plating goes as following, de-chrome plating, grinding, polishing, nickle plating and finally a new layer of chrome.
