Atomic coffee maker was created by Ray Townsend
Hello all

I live in the UK and would appreciate some advice.

I've just inherited some items from an old friend who died recently and amogst the stuff is an Atomic coffee maker. It has all of its parts and was just about working when I got it but the safety valve is very corroded and in fact the thread broke apart when I tested the machine. There are also a couple of oversized corrosion holes in the filter mesh where the boiling waters cascadeds down onto the coffe.

Having found out more about the Atomic, I'd really like to renovate it and wodered if anyone knows where I can get a spare safety valve and the pin hole mess that is corroded?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Ray

No problem! You must save it!
The safety valve is included with the big bad black knob. Get a new one from Bon trading in Woolhara.
As for th filter go to a Pavoni retailer, ask for the OLD model filter. Of course bring the coffee holder with you....but you knew that.

Saving your Sneezy Poo contributes to a healthier lifestyle, dimishes waste, embelishes your home, ads anti-oxydants to your body and will make you richer when you sell it.
Nothing wrong with that, right?

Don't forget (Sigh), NEVER leave that knob on and when you finished using it for the day, give it a swirl with that Brillo pad...or whatever you sophisticated lot use. Handshake, FrEdErIcK

Hello Ray,

The filter from the OLD Pavoni is getting rare.
Anther filter, in stainless, that is the smaller size of the two supplied by Atomic, is the FAEMA AMICA one.

Went down to the espresso mecca in Montreal and picked up a few. They are a low $9.50 canadian!

They are a PERFECT fit for ALL the Atomics.
I hope that this will help a few of you out there.

Hi Frederick

I've been away for a few weeks - hence the rude silence.

Just a quick note to say thanks for the advice - I've ordered the black knob gismo from Oz and will now also look for the filter you mentioned

Thanks again

Ray

Greeting y'all-

About twenty-three years ago, I was given an Atomic (Thos. Cara, Ltd. San Francisco, CA was the importer). It has the pressure gauge on the top of it. However, I misplaced the instructions, and would like to begin using it again. Does anyone have a set of instructions which they could fax or scan and e-mail to me? I'd be much obliged. Chuck
