Jonathan S:The base and handle attach by a set screw. I don't have access to my calipers for more accurate measurements, but based on my crude measurements of the set screw, I'd say the base is tapped for 3/8"-16.Apr 13, 2014
ZPereira asked:One more question…I want to get a 57mm base for my Cafelat Tamper. Can you tell me - will the RB 57mm base screw onto my existing Cafelat handle? It would save me a few dollars to buy other 'stuff'!
Teri KStaff:No, unfortunately the Cafelat and Reg Barber handles are not compatible. The diameter threading on the screw is different, and it is also the case that the stem of the tamper handle on the Reg Barber is larger. For this reason, even if you were able to screw the Cafelat handle in place on a Reg Barber base, there would be a gap around the edge of the tamper handle where it meets the base. I hope this makes sense, but let me know if you have any other questions!Nov 9, 2013
