It's probably better described as a 42mm basket with big shiulders to fit a 58mm portafilter. emoji16.png
Think it'll be easiest if I send them over to you so you can check the fit as you're going. Will PM after work.

Sounds good I think you are local possibly , If I remember rightly you visit Croydon way ?

Only 5 days a week (unless I'm doing overtime). Used to work in Wallington too so not too far away at all.

Re the above request I have been beavering away and come up with this funnel in Cherry wood .. It really helped having the relevant bits to size too . Quite a challenge to get a nice sliding fit for the tamper and the bottom  angle to be tight to the portafilter . We like cherry and a quite enjoyable project .😬🥴😂

It's not been too bad to be honest. Just went back to a spouted portafilter (only usually use it with a blind basket!) to split the shot if making a 'spro. Mostly have milk drinks or americanos anyway but have a feeling that may change.

It really is, looks just like the decent espresso funnel but 10 times classier. 

Of course now I want a Blackwood tamper handle as that’s the only thing that doesn’t match!

I can’t use it direct on the grinder yet. I need a set of bench scales first.

I know.. it is sooooo bland and I think PLASTIC .. possibly the EazyTamp one .. A Blackwood one would be really nice and very very expensive that size ( cost of wood alone 🤯)  🥴😂😂

Would probly be cheaper to make one out of lignum vitae if you could find an old set of woods in a charity shop to turn down.

I love a good repurpose. I can see how the weight & density of lignum would lend itself to a mallet head.
