Amen brother! Hey; I hope you didn't ditch the Twist. I've been lovin' mine, and I've got you (well, your "youtube" vids, anyway) to thank for that. This thing still never ceases to amaze me!

 
Ciao,

Dave

Heh, is it modded? I never had results like that with my Skerton. It seemed like luck determined shot quality more than anything.

Hey Dave,
The Twist was a great educational tool, and I'd probably still be using it except it couldn't hold up to the stress I was putting it through on a daily basis.
But the shots were amazing. And I wouldn't accept anything less, now.

No mods. It's 'perfectly' fine as is.
The trick is to experiment using a very heavy (and extreme in motion) nutating tamp.
Plus, the 20g of coffee beans in a triple basket doesn't hurt, either. : )

Love the $10 grinder. Thanks for the tip on the mod!
