It’s a tamper for a coffee machine I made out of a failed pulley casting (I do foundry time to time) lying around and a piece of wood. The knob is turned on a improvised wood lathe and finished with olive oil and paraffin wax. Defects add an authentic touch :) I hope “the client” will be pleased.

The espresso tamper club will grow, maybe one day we’ll able to challenge the cutting board club :)

Have your say...
