    I noticed my tor which is 57.5, or something similar is a touch loose on the edge. Even on my old triple.
    However as it is convex it will fit tight as long as you don't over dose.

    On the screen I find if I do not do back flush and clean regularly it will not shower in a fine way, but more towards the centre in a harder flow. Of course clean makes for a much more precise taste that I notice.

    I just got the VST baskets with my new machine. I use the same 58 mm tamper with no real problem, both the supplied tamper and the one I purchased are rounded and not flat.

    There's a guy on eBay who does precision 58.35mm tampers for fairly cheap, or at least cheaper than reg. I think I paid around $30 bucks for my flat bottom.

    I like to drink my coffee out of a mug.

    Torr has them in 58.4, but I wonder if this too large?

    Different types of base also in convex, flat, etc.

    I am also searching out, and may try a Titanium next from them, with wood handle.

    Hey, if Ricardo thinks it's "good to the last drop," who are we to question him?

    Now to clean it all up and do a final calibration. Pretty cool, though.

    That's amazing. No more guessing about temperature.
