No pressure here! The concept-art Technic Tamper Handle releases automatically when it reaches maximum pressure. You can adjust the tamper from 21 to 46 pounds of pressure. Not sure if you are hitting the sweet spot of 30 pounds of pressure? You can twist and tamp your fresh fluffy grounds into the portafilter with confidence, shot after shot. It's not cheating, really!
Pick your handle, pick your base and give your grounds the tamp of approval!
Hi Teri, thank you for responding--is there any way that you guys can see if any other manufacturers bases fit on the Concept Art handle? It seems to be smaller than average. I have tried google and HB, but no luck. I was hoping a RB Ripple would work, but I guess that they do not. Any help would be great!
Hi Kurt, Unfortunately Reg Barber is the only other brand we carry both separate bases and handles, and so they are the only other bases I have available to check for compatibility. I am sorry that I don't have a base option for you and wish I could be of more assistance. Perhaps you may be able to find a concept art base from a reseller like eBay or from another vendor. Good luck in the search!
Do you guys sell the base only? I'm asking because I'm considering buying handle+base in 53mm, but I'll upgrade my machine next year for one with a 58mm portafilter so I'm wondering if I can change the base only later on to a 58mm one.
Best Answer:No, the concept-art Technic Tamper Handle is sold independently of the base and it does not come with the knock base, which would need to be purchased separately. The bases are only available flat, and the knock base, when available, is listed along with the other bases in the drop down menu. The knock base is only sold in a 58mm size. Hope this helps clarify!
Can we get the exact spec of the thread size? I need a 54mm base sourced from another manufacture because concept-art don't do one by the looks of things. Maybe the 53mm would be ok, any thoughts? Thanks!
