add to my resume that I can overhaul a Pavoni espresso machine. the group gasket had hardened to where I basically had to chisel it out, and the snap ring had rusted solidly to the top of the group cylinder. I had to first pry out the brass washer and then pound against the remainder of the snap ring to free it, after liberally applying Liquid Wrench. finally the damned thing works without leaks. oh, and I had to clean both screens with a needle, punching out the scale and/or coffee grounds in every goddamned hole. probably less than it takes to fill the Albert Hall though.
