I just found on VST site that they are selling a 7g STD basket.
Click Here (store.vstapps.com)

and they specify at the bottom of that page 40.7-40.9 tamper

Now i looked and looked and all i could find was Reg Barber from canada, who is selling the tamper for 73++  and shipping is at least $20 to the USA.

Does anyone know any online store that would sell such a size, for cheaper.

Thank you.

Are you certain that basket will fit in your machine?

Why wouldnt be? am i missing something?

Anyways i have a La cimbali m23, and i have cut and made one of the portafilters that came with it bottomless. so i believe it should work.

Here is what VST wrote on the website i linked above:

"22-g & 7-g fits all La Marzocco and Synesso and most Nuova Simonelli models using their standard portafilters.
Faema, La Cimbali, Rancilio require a bottomless portafilter."

well if i am missing something please let me know.

My main problem now, is that it seems most tamper companies dont make a 40.7 mm tamper. and i am about to go the custom way of doing this. i will wait couple of days to see if anyone on this forum knows first.

i already checked that site before... The smallest size i see is a 49mm . i dont see a 40.7 or 40.9 mm. I even send them an email 4 days ago and still haven't received a reply if they can make a custom 40.7 tamper.

is it hidding somewhere?

Select the size in the drop down menu - 40.7mm is near the bottom (even though the headline is 49-58mm, 40.7mm is in the list).

Oh My God, I feel so embarrassed.... it was always there, but i expected it to be at the top, and there it was at the bottom.

Thank you all soooooo much. and i do apologize for this question afterall since it was always right in front of my eyes.
