My Little hand-Pump Espresso Machine

I bought this little Olympus Cremina machine many years ago for $250 used. It quit working and I bought a used Rancilio Silvia. A while ago I took the Olympus in and got it fixed. I've switched to using it now. I like the industrial look. I'm working on my crema. I've looked for them online today and the only one for sale (new) was $3850!
