  • !!SOLD!!: Custom made 58mm tamper

    Hi snobs,

    For sale is a custom made 58mm tamper (58.5mm, actually).  So it will better fit Bezzera, VBM and Giotto handles than most tampers will- havent tried the other brands, so wont know for sure, sorry!

    The internal thread and solid machined head are both 316 s.s. - which is an extremely high quality stainless steel.  The handle is made from duroplast - a high quality, strong and chemical resistant plastic.  The little mat is a cutout of neoprene rubber (food grade) - resistant to 120 deg C.

    I was actually using this tamper myself for a month or so until I made myself a better one - so there are a few hardly noticeable scratches.  THe only thing is that it is a little small, as seen in the picture - so if youve got big hands like myself, its not for you.  a good chicks tamper.

    at $30 pickup or $40 delivered, its a steal - cost me HEAPS more to make.

    gavin.

      Hi,

      I have previously bought a tamper from Gavin (and I think I saw this one in the metal) and can say that that price is a steal.

      Someone better grab it!


      Cheers Gavin

              Gavin made me one too and I have been using it with the Faema at the shed. It looks terrific in the photos and believe me, they dont do his workmanship justice 8-)

                Chris, thats too nice of you, mate. Dont give me all the credit tho, your input to this little project of mine has been absolutely invaluable. I just love the comfort of the tamper that I ,or we, are using now!
