Now I have had it a while, I just wanted to pass on how much easier I have found producing an even tamp with my 58.5 mm tamper than I did with the standard 58mm tamper I started with. I put this down to the fact that as well as a greater surface area and consequently more even coverage, the tamper just has to be level in the basket. There is not enough room between the inside of the basket and the outside of the tamper for it to be anything but perpendicular.


Definitely pleased and luckily enough to have received my Heft from MBK in good time

+1 from me. I wish the handle was shaped like the Reg Barber tall and in a darker wood (mine is beech) but it is a very good tamper for the price. For my SDB, if the top of the base is level with the top of the basket, that is the headspace for the puck sorted.
