3" long, 38g, rusticated briar with natural horn ring, brass with tool steel pick/blade. $100 with a pipe Ok, it's not an antikythera mechanism but it's nicely machined if I say so myself. This is tamper no. 4. Once I got my Jet lathe with its quick change gearbox running I looked for an excuse to cut some threads. Voila, tampers. Well, almost voila. Threading to a shoulder takes some timing and reflexes. Immediately it occurred to me to make tampers to match pipes; so far I'm batting .500 on that concept. But the possibilities are endless. If you've got an idea, hit me.
