    custom/home made knock box & tamper

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    laugh or like, here are my home made knock box and tamper.

    knock box - 110mm scrap pipe from building site $0, cap+bolt+sleeve ~$7

    Tamp - stainless steel weighs 750gm!!! machined with the help of a fitter/turner friend, fits my Rancilio basket perfectly, leaves almost no grinds on sidewall of basket. Very happy indeed :) might do a redgum handle for it as well.

    Well done,
    I have a similar type of knock box, and am quite happy with it, does the job very well.

    Not all of us have friends who can knock up a tamper like yours, but again it looks good and sounds like it does the job well.

    Bullitt - yeah I just cant justify spending $40+ on a glorified bin (thats half the size)

    KK - my DIY brain is very difficult to turn off, when I first saw the Versalab grinder I thought, "oh yeah, thats do-able!"

    I had the same thoughts on a Versalab type grinder

    I couldnt be bothered undoing the bolt to clean it out. Then again probably no harder than wrestling it back into the rubber moulding.
