49MM SPALTED MYRTLEWOOD BURL TAMPER This is very rare wood. True Myrtlewood burl is rare. Spalted into this unusal gray-blue is even more rare. I bought this burl because my friend who had it didn't want to make just a few things out of it and run out. Cost: $80.00 includes shipping.
49MM BLACK LOCUST TAMPER Black Locust is a much more beautiful wood than I realized. The camera doesn't capture the darker hues of this tamper. $55.00 includes shipping
49mm Imbuya Palm tamper. This tamper is made using the 49mm Elektra double basket. SOLD
Most lever machines take a 49mm tamper.
Most mornings you will find me pulling shots with my Elektra S1 Microcasa Lever. What tamper do I use? I use a figured maple Thor Tamper! I have had customers think that I use a fancy exotic wood tamper! No, a nice maple is just fine for me. I must confess however I use a very nice birdseye Myrtlewood as my 58mm tamper. In my La Peppina I use a 45mm Desert Ironwood Burl that has a bit too much defect to sell. So now you all know what tampers I use.
49MM CROTCH DESERT IRONWOOD TAMPER. This tamper came from some crotch wood, and has some unusual figure. It almost looks like it is smiling at you!
Cost: $80.00 includes shipping.
