Subject: Eterna lever machine
I have the chance to buy a 2-group Eterna lever machine for a price I
can't refuse. Is this a good machine? Google has turned up nothing
about this machine and little about the defunct Eterna company.

I am certain you have thought of it, but are there parts for this?

I finally got past the receptionist at Moschetti and they have *some*
parts and they said it was a decent machine. I know this will be more
difficult than just ordering off-the-shelf stuff. If it is beyond me,
I can pass it on to someone else. I did get another much-smaller lever
machine back to life and there are no parts for it either.

I've done that. Like I said, Google turned up nothing about Eterna
lever machines, and little about the company itself. I called that
parts/service shop at link #8 in the morning and I couldn't get past
the receptionist after spelling Eterna 3 times.

There's a message from Roger Barrett in the archives to the effect
that they make good stuff. I'd just like to know that the machine
isn't some brain-dead design.
