    Clickless Espro! Can it be fixed?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have aquired an espro click tamper but it has lost its click. I have tried adjusting the long grub screw up and down but Im still clickless and clueless.

    My wife says I need an aspro more than an espro but anyway...

    Can someone help? I cant seem to get the thing apart to have a squiz.

    Thanks,
    Don

    I found out from the manufacturer last year that they are put together with a 4 ton press so save your energy trying to pull it apart by hand... it aint going to happen!

    You can get it pulled apart at a good engineering workshop but I dont know anything about the clicker... I had one dismantled and turned-down to a smaller (odd) size last year but only the engineer saw it in pieces.

    How did the tamper lose its "click"? Did you drop it? The tamper is rated for 2 million tamps. If you can prove it lost its click in normal operation then a factory replacement may be in order if it is less than 12 months old. (What tamper comes with a 12 month warranty??) :P

    Yeah thanks - I got to around page 7 and suddenly developed a raging headache and an uncontrollable urge to harm small animals and Gloria Jeans employees.

    I did not get the flamin thing orf an auction site but I hear what you saying. Somebody just gave it to me.

    Dunno how many tamps he done, no idea at all. No DAVID I didnt drop it but hey if it takes a 4 ton press to make him....

    Ok so the answer is no easy answer. Thanks anyway.

    Ill take it to my friendly engineery type person and will post the results. Might help some other looney like me in therapy.

    Figure 6 is, I think what I have in my tamping machine. I fear the signal dome is broke.

    Lets put it this way....even I havent tamped 2 million handles of coffee and Im used to working in cafes that push anywhere between 60 and 80 kg + a week.

    In a cafe serving 50 kg a week (with an average of 90 cups of coffee from a kilogram and all made from single handles) it would take more than 4 years of tamping to reach 2 million tamps.
