    Challenge for you experts - identify what machine these portafilters are for...

    These two were purchased by a friend off Craigslist for a commercial Gaggia but did not fit.
    Can anyone tell me what machine they are for? Maybe he can recoup some of his losses.
    Ears are at 2 & 7
    measurements =
    outer rim of filter is about 70.4mm
    top edge of filter rim to top of ear is about 8.4mm
    ear is about 5.5mm thick

    To me, it looks like Nuova Simonnelli VIP pro portafilters. but its really hard to tell by looking at the pictures.

    Yeh it's too hard to tell but looks similar to the Nuova Simonnelli PFs.

    Not too sure about Nuova Simonnelli PFs. But they look like the portafilters that fit the C.M.A. machines(Rio espresso, Astoria, etc.)
    Ears not quite 2(about 1:30 No joking!) and 7. I have both a Rio 2 grp. and an Astoria 2grp., and boy your pics look like they will fit
    these machines.

    here are the specs from my NS pfs.
    ears at 2&7 o'clock
    length of ear approx. 26 mm.
    o.d from ear to ear approx. 80.5 mm
    o.d. of rim only 70 mm.
    overall length 225 mm.
    by the specs. seems yours will fit a
    Nuova Simonelli machine.
    look on the bottom of the pf for any logo.Challenge for you experts - identify what machine these portafilters are for...-028.jpgChallenge for you experts - identify what machine these portafilters are for...-026.jpg

    Thanks, I'll put it in the car and next time I am somewhere using a Nouva Simonelli I'll see if I can try it. There are no logos or marks anywhere on either.
