  • Post pics of your Tamper

    I have a new Coffee Tamp and thought I would post it. Made out of Jarrah. Im reasonably happy with it. Fits my hand quite well. Only used it once though.

          Finally got the charger back for my camera.

          From front to back 3x Coffeelab (no idea how I ended up with that many), Espro, Bumper (different style handles in the back) and Pullman (broken )

          Cheers,

          Luca

              He must have taken it too literally, and "PULLED" instead of "PUSHED"

                  looks like you just need to shove some araldite in the hole and put it back together. That is a nice collection by the way. I made another one about a week ago out of sheoke. The timber looks nice but i made it a little too short. None the less it isnt bad to use as I only make a couple of coffees a day. Next thing for me will be a better machine.

                    Hey Luca,

                    Id have been more than happy to have fixed it for you when it broke, but this is the first Ive heard of it... feel free to get in touch with me straightaway if something goes wrong.

                    Incidentally for those concerned, the assembly process and some components were changed a couple of years ago to prevent this breakage as its been termed here. It happened about one in 150 or so, so it was rare, but is now nigh impossible with current designs.

                      Greg, I have been meaning to ask if it is possible to interchange handles with bases? I love my handle and really do not want to part with it. When I upgrade to a new machine can I keep the handle and change the base to fit the new baskets easily?

                        Hi Greg,

                        Thanks for that, but you have already been so generous in keeping me in the loop and modifying my tamper over the years that I dont want to put you to any more trouble. I didnt even notice that the threads in the wood had worn down until a few weeks ago! I think that the araldite suggestion will probably do it.

                        Cheers,

                        Luca

                          Dont worry at all about putting me to trouble, its my tamper (design), its my job to make sure it works!

                          What Id be doing for the units made with that design is to get a set of pliers and unscrew the stud from the base (it can jam in the bottom of the thread hence the problem), run a thin smear (note THIN, just enough to cover the threads in four strips spaced apart by 90 degrees) of Araldite across the upper part of the stud and screw it into the handle so about 8mm of thread is poking out. Now gently reassemble it and make sure the stud doesnt bottom out in the base when the handle is right back on. Presuming it doesnt, leave it there for 24 hours and then it can be used as normal.

                          Greg

                              I hope the red ones dont go faster.

                              If it does though just grind finer.
