Does the 53mm come with a tamper base or is it only on the 58mm?

Best Answer:The Cafelat Royal Tamper is available in 53 or 58 mm sizes, and you will choose the tamper base size, along with the material and color of the handle. It is available in both base sizes in a handle made of either wood or two colors of rubber.
Works well, but I expect higher quality for the moneyReview by Jamie
This tamper does the trick, but I think that the materials and quality don't really justify the price. Stainless steel is not that expensive a material... The tamper does its job well enough. The holder works too, and has stayed stuck to the side of my Rancilio Silvia for a few years now with no sign of the glue weakening. This tamper has a handle which screws into the base, and a rubber piece in the handle which can become loose. Inadequate thread locking compound on the screw thread where the handle joins the base allowed it all to come loose. I had to fiddle with it for quite a while to get both the rubber piece and the base attached firmly at the same time, and I used some locktite to make sure it wouldn't get loose again. The rubber holder works well as a tamping mat too. (Posted on 3/29/2016)
Beautiful, but could be improvedReview by Regis
This tamper is simply beautiful, feels very well proportioned and solid. Fits perfectly in my hand. My only regret is that the crown is made of aluminum instead of stainless steel. Aluminum is a very soft metal, so if you lightly knock the side of the portafilter to shake the loose grinds, you will dent the crown.
