I was surprised by the effect of this tamper on the resulting shots when compared with the plastic concave 54 mm one that came with the machine. I used 25% infill to save material. The grounds have to be tamped with 7-15 kg of force anyway, so the weight of the tamper does not matter much as long as the tamping force is consistent.
Hi there - I see you have a Silvia and Rocky! How are you finding the tamper so far? Did you have to increase the infill to get a heavier or more solid feel?
