    Not having one I can only guess and it is the positioning of the two washers that escapes me...

    Would suggest you go here http://www.macap.it/ and contact them... I am sure they would have a exploded diag that they could send...

    Thanks,

    I sent a mail to Macap in Italy... fingers Xed they can help me put this thing back together.!

    is a nice tamper, but LOUD..
    if your grinder or the espresso machine pump dont wake up your wife, this tamper WILL.. the CLICK is like a gun shot..;)

    I have the Espro which I like a bit better, is a little heavier, low profile design and the click is very smooth..

    thanks again,
    Juanjo

    Great to hear... ;D

    Now the trick is to remember how you did it and to do it without the wine :D
