  • Needed a feedneck stopper for my Macap grinder.

    Spend a day at Ikea looking for new furnitures. Was hoping for a nice cup of coffee, so the mind started to wonder.

    Came across this candle stick holder and I thought that it is pretty close to the size of a tamper while the middle section seems wide and deep enough to accommodate the middle of the feedneck.

    Took it home, test it out and it feeds the neck nicely. Grab the hack saw and saw the base off. Now just need to find something nice to cover the top bit

        Used that at the beginning too but thought this might be a fun little add on

        Will see if I can sand off all the paint, smooth it out and varnish it or something... looks like a giant chess pawn on top

          I do the same with a double 58mm basket on my Superjolly, sits nice and snug and also serves as a dosing measure!!
