Which 58.5mm tamper base would fit my calibrated tamper?
I have this calibrated tamper and I like it a lot, except that the 58mm base is a bit too small for my baskets. I found 58.5mm tamper bases such as JoeFrex and Reg Barber. Does anyone know if they'll fit my tamper?
Have you measured the thread of the stud in the tamper handle?
Once you know this, it is just a matter of contacting the various tamper manufacturers and posing the question...
How about the original manufacturer "LuxHaus"? They may sell a range of incremental base sizes.
If you don't know the thread size hardware stores usually have a board in their nuts and bolts aisle that has all the different types in both male and female form with sizes next to them so you can (gently) see what fits.
Good ideas indeed. I'll check the thread in a store and then contact these vendors. Thanks for the suggestions!
