  1. Its with a heavy heart (and lighter wallet after buying a Mahlgut tamper) that I'm letting this go.


    It's served me well in the month I've had it but due to my cack-handed tamping I bottled it and gone for a puck styled tamper (which in hindsight has given me one less thing to blame :)


    As you'll see from the images its a beauty which was supplied by coffeechap. It's been a perfect fit for my 2 VST baskets (and my default SDB ones) leaving no strays up the edges. I just appear to have the wonkiest grip in the world.


    £60 which will include postage too (or £55 if you're local enough to collect it from Sheffield).





  2. Hi Andy,


    If at any point you'd consider accepting £95 I'd like to make that offer. I fully understand if that falls short of what you're after, but the missus would 'Bobbit' me if I spent more than that on a tamper :)

  4. Im looking at getting a new tamper as the one with the SDB I recently got just seems to leave that bit too much around the edge (after all it couldn't possibly be my tekkers, I've been tamping for 2 weeks now ;)


    Having hit the google and accessed the slippery slopes of 'for a bit more money I can get a...' I'd looked at a the following few and wondered if anyone has had hands on with them and could offer an opinion? My main worry is that as a nubber to this, the snugger the fit the less forgiving of poor technique they would be.


    Pullman Big Step


    or a Reg Barber made to a similar size (58.4/5mm)


    I've got the VST baskets already so there's no additional overheads.


    Any feebdback gratefully appreciated!

  5. Seems to clump up a little bit, but having read a bit more I guess that could be down to the fresh bean being quite oily it is less of an issue as the coffee gets a bit older. On the whole I'm happy with it especially as I use a press at work so going from one to another and back again settings wise is easy enough.
