La Pavoni machines have small portafilter handles that crack and break with age. Many are now obsolete and due to the smaller diameter cannot be easily replaced by other production handles. Our wooden replacement handle is handmade to the original La Pavoni handle dimensions. We offer our replacement handles as follows: M12 Thread handle comes with no insert screw is for the lever handle and attaches to the 12mm lever arm. M12 SS Insert Screw handle comes with a stainless 12mm insert that attaches to the portafilter basket. Choose this option for the Portafiler handle because it comes with a Stainless Insert screw that replaces the original La Pavoni steel screw which is very prone to rust. M10 SS Insert Screw handle is for old versions using a M10 bolt from 1950 to 1953. Portafilter handle replacement for La Pavoni by model year: (measure to confirm mm size) All models after 1996 use this M12 version. Then, to make things really complicated, versions from “around” 1994 and 1995, a M10 x M12 conversion bolt was used. Old (from 1950 to 1993) versions used a M10 bolt.
