If you know what this is about--Sorry for the original post.  It was 2AM, and I found some numeric discrepancies that I found interesting, is all.


Subject was deleted because it was not intended cause any "ill will" here on the boards.  I'm not trying to sabotage anyone's business.

The sizing came up recently on the roaster's list for a custom made Thor tamper. Turns out the tamper has to be just under 53mm to fit comfortably.

I have the 58mm version; it's a terrific tamper. The rounded bottom builds up the edge; so the slightly smaller diameter won't affect it's performance.

I just thought the discrepancy a little strange is all.

Like I said, I'll probably still bid on the thing, just because it's about the most inexpensive "good" tamper that will come close to fitting in my PF.

  1.  I am not the one who suggested you were doing false advertising.  

Attitude? You see, I could simply just sell items and be a vendor who cares less about the products or customers or I can participate in an industry that I'm very passionate about, and maybe it's that passion that gets in the way sometimes.

  1.  I did not fault your passion for you business.  In fact, I've purchased several things from you in the past.  You provide several great products & I enjoy using them daily.  Your customer interaction (in my experience, at least) could use some improvement.

A forever type posting of this type is entirely un called for.

  1. Yes, on second thought, I probably should have not said anything.  But, I didn't say anything nasty or inappropriate.  I did not steer the original poster away from your auction or company to a competitor.  I simply made a statement that is based upon my experience in the past with you.  (I even purchased more items from you AFTER that...just made sure to walk on eggshells.)  Perhaps as a business owner, you should not take it personally and instead take it as constructive critiquing.

Quod erat demonstrandum.

I suppose it would be inappropriate of me to giggle at this time.

Shame..Shame. Around "Latte Land", Terry, is known as a straight, stand-up guy. Sometimes irritating customers, are the ones with the "tudes"....
