Subject: Rancilio badge
The name badge on my Rancilio Sienna was pretty crude. I can't tell from
pictures if the Silvia's badge is a decal, a sticker, a silk screen, or
etched in the metal. Can some Silvia owner clarify this for me? Thanks.

Subject: Re: Rancilio badge -- mounting via nuts not a sticker
What daveb posted is what I got on my Silvia in 11/05. It's a die-cast
name badge held on with those two posts and round clips.

It was a challenge to pry it off without denting the SS case. I used a
1/32" DIN sized panel punch to put my PID in the case, but had to come
up with a solution for the two holes that the pegs fit through. I put
some small SS screws through them. It looks like it's holding on the
PID. 8)

I kept the badge, and put the PID just below it.

BTW, I do not know if they are available as a separate part.

the CURRENT silvia badge is painted and plated plastic, mounted through
2 holes and held from behind the panel by 2 pushon metal 'nuts'.


I don't have any OLD Silvias here right now just six NEW ones.

Earlier Silvia's were a sticker.
Later models are a stick-on badge.

That must be one of the "first generation" machines- about 6.5 years
old or more, that had the bolted-in heating element. Do you still have
the original heating element and seals?

My label is a silver mylar(?) with black print.
