TCL Espresso Maker Parts Needed : LUSENET : Coffee Related Buy/Sell/Trade : One Thread

I just acquired a mint condition, stove-top TCL brand espresso maker made in Milano, Italy. The unit is missing its black plastic lever or knob for the steam release spigot. Does anyone know of links to this manufacturer or a spare parts house that might provide the handle? I also need a tamper for the cup but that is not as critical. An owners manual or pictures of this ~1 liter capacity maker would be of assistance. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry I can't help you, I just bought what sounds like the same model. All of the parts seem to be there but no manual ( I have no idea how to use it). If you can provide any informationm it would be greatly appreciated. If I run across anything in my search, I will contact you.

It seems like these TCL Milano Italy coffee makers pop up anywhere in the world. I was at my local flea market toaday in Caboolture, Queensland Australia and picked one up for $10.00 Au. It's in good condition with no parts missing (that I can see anyway). Just like you guys - there's no manual and I while I think I can work it out, I'd really love a set of instructions. If I find anything I'll get in touch with both of you.

I picked up one of these coffee makers at a local trash and treasure in Rosebud Victoria just today I seem to think that previous owner has cut off part of the stem on the part that holds the coffee grounds dont ask me why but I am working on fixing that problem site for information and instructions is milano.pdf

I can see from the answers you got that these units never come with anything to teach you to use the machines. We have had one in the family and use it to make an Irish coffee. Does anyone know where I could get another one of these units? Is the company still in business?

You will find one on ebay very soon!
