I have made 9/10ths of a Pullman tamper from parts, but none of them came with the thread to lock the handle and the base together. Can anyone tell me what size thread it is and/or where I might get one from? Cheers
Solved my own problem. Walked to the local hardware store and tried a series of coach bolts. It’s M10 FYI. Hacksawed the bolt head off, loctited one end into the handle and I’m away laughing.
Pullman don’t obviously display contact info on their website. I looked for 20 min before posting here.
No direct contact info.
Certainly not actively participating in the forum, possibly because they are no longer sponsors. I wonder if they are relying more on wholesale trade now.Re Pullman, have noticed they are not quite as prominent as they once were, I suspect Greg was a lot more passionate about the business than the present owners
Last year Greg was overseas and answering my emails and I couldnít fault the service he provided.
"Yes they do. It's here: https://pullman.coffee/contactus
No direct contact info."
this is what I found....

Hope to cross town and visit them once mad march has subsided.
So after working out that I actually drive past the Pullman workshop on my way home everyday, yesterday I headed there with my wife to buy my birthday present. Ended up walking out with a 19-22g basket, a bigstep base and a Zebrano wooden handle.
Had a great chat with the guy there and got some tips on tamp technique etc
When I got home I ran a quick test with the new basket and tamp and was amazed at the improvement in the crema on the coffee given the beans and grind had not changed. FLavour was noticably improved also, possibly most as I had increased basket size from around 18g to 20 odd. I know my tamp technique can still use some practice.
Glad it's a once in a life time purchase as I'd not want to spend that on a tamp again. That being saif I think I might need a matching wooden group handle now
