That is quite funny...

If you don't want anything technically advanced (click at a force or with a digital read out display), check out Reg Barber.

That comment is funny. I'd take any tamper, cheap or expensive if it can give me the perfect shot time after time.  Having said that I had a vibiemme superdomobar too and any 58mm worked just fine.

it's probably insignificant to you, but...technically speaking...the group accepts a 58mm pf handle and basket.  The tamper is nominally 58mm to fit the basket, not the machine. If you have precision baskets (which I'm guessing you do not), you'd want a 58.3mm tamper base. Reg makes great stuff. When you browse his site (if you haven't done so already), you'll find you can get any size you want in 0.1mm increments. You can even send in a basket and have them size to fit perfectly.

There are LOTS not made in China.

No worries . . . you still will have lots to choose from.

Posted May 31, 2014 link

a) That is funny, but perhaps it's a language issue (i.e.: lost in translation).  The tamper is the least important part of making great espresso.  Is it important?  Yes, but it's at the bottom of the list.
b) Define "good value for money," Dani.  Tampers rarely have any moving parts (there are a few which do), so a well-made one should last literally forever.  

Dani, are you looking for a source in Israel? in Europe? or can/will you order from North America, and pay shipping?

I will tell you that my personal favorite tamper(s) come from Cafelat, though these may be made in China, I don't know (they were designed in Denmark).  I would also strongly recommend the tampers from Reg Barber, which are made in Canada.

The pictures look fine, but what can you tell from a picture?  In this case, not much.  Personally, I'm not crazy about either handle, but that's just me -- I have a preferred shape because it fits in my hand more comfortably.  Still, they're Israeli -- how can you go wrong?  (I suppose I could ask my cousin what she uses . . . )

Personally I really like my Bumper tamper w/ bulb handle. I think it may be made in China, though it's very good quality. I recently ordered a sweet looking 58.35 tamper from made by knock, but my order somehow got lost and they refunded my money after a month and a half so I'm still looking for a 58.35.

BTW the UK price on the made by knock is 29 but with exchange rates it was around $70 US. Don't know what you'd pay though.

Thanks everyone for the help.

update:
I found both tampers on ebay.

Click Here (www.ebay.com)

Click Here (www.ebay.com)

The price is the almost same but base size range is different (49 - 58 + 58.35 and 49.6 for VST)
Both tampers are very popular on ebay and got a lot of positive feedbacks.

I very like the design of the second tamper.
What do you think?

Reg Barber.

If you're looking for the perfect shot, an RB tamper won't do that for you. No tamper will.  That's your job.
