5) What's the difference between all the tampers out there other than
the material, feel of the handle and size of the base? I'm guessing I'm
fine just using the plastic one that came with my mom's old machine?
7) I don't know if this already exists, but, since a 30lb tamper seems to
be ideal, would making a tamper with a 30lb compression spring in it
work to achieve that? And then once you reach 30lb, the shaft starts
shrinking/sliding into the handle? See diagram. You could produce
different weights/compression strengths... it would let you be more
precise. Sure, you wouldn't be able to do it by feel, but if you're
starting out... ;)
Fixed plastic, plated offsets can be found on both grinders and
espresso machines for tamping purposes -- as would there be
extravagances, spring-loaded, pneumatic, or not, for some considerable
sum in addition;-- An utter waste to pursue beyond what, reasonably,
a proficient tamp proffers. There are few golden rules allied with
tamping, beyond 30 lbs. axiomatically thrust into a pit, although
there are those that do take tamping beyond, into rigorous accord.
The idea behind ritualized tamping is conceivably an embellishment
upon limitations, apparently, directly attributable to properties the
grinder first imposed. On an extensible linear scale, such as to form
an analogy to the tamper, the farthest gradient for so fine a quality
a grinder provides, such as to be an ideal grinder of measurable
capability, is the least adaptive factor for further tampering;- in
other words, the grind dosage from such an ideal grinder, as
distributed across the PF basket, is the pinnacle of perfection, no
tamp may assuage in any better sense beyond a cursory cap and polish
The amount of money you've assessed a grinder sounds sufficient to me
to where, should concentration on achieving a fairest value be
achieved, for the grinder residuals (its utility) in turn to then more
than provide an compensatory measure of insignificance for any outlay
the tamp occurs.
