    Currently waiting for youtube to upload (I live in the middle of nowhere so at best I get 1Mb upload and 5Mb download) but yes, if I shake the then the puck will fall out, looks very similar in terms of effort to yours.

    First result using the internal oracle grinder and an external (stamp) tamper:
    Same as using the internal tamper

    So it's a problem of the grind or the brewing

    Will now try with the smart grinder

    Second experiment:

    Using the smart grinder with external tamper: Same! No repeatable shots

    @oracleuser
    Pre ground coffee will be worse.. it goes stale within hours of opening if it is not already stale ..
    Coffee beans bought without a roast date on are generally stale . ( Not a use by date )
    On the rare occasion I have bought from a supermarket , you have to adjust the grind daily or quicker.
    People on this thread have tried to advise you of this .. You are making all this harder for yourself ..
    Sage tell you on their videos and in the booklet to use freshly roasted coffee ..
    The oracle I had was making really good coffee within hours of getting it home .. Very easy to dial in using freshly roasted coffee..
    The tamping mechanism on the machine was on mine very reliable and takes that out of the equation .

    OK...so two things

    1) You guys were right supermarket beans are shit ... premium beans taste much much much bettere
    2) Problem doesn't seem to be fixed....still experimenting but...shot one: 60 ml, shot two: 70ml, shot three: 80ml.............will have to send the machine in for replacement

    That does sound off - bear in mind that the grind, tamp and water are all fixed variables. Now that you have some decent beans then you've tried everything. Would be really interested to hear what gets fixed when you get it back from Sage.

    Hope you get it sorted soon - almost a year now and probably close to 1000 shots and other than dialling it in, no duff ones so they are very capable machines (which I'd expect for the price!)
