Compact Pancake Tamper with a sliding ring to keep things level. This was designed to nest perfecting inside the Picopresso so the original carrying case could still be used. Because of this, the Pancake Tamper only has 14mm of travel from the top of the basket.
As this compact design grows in popularity, additional size bases will be added.
The production version no longer has a spring as the leveling plate is now hand fitted on each tamper to have a very close tolerance to where the spring no longer has any effect. The spring was ditched in order to achieve an ultimate precision perpendicular tamp!
This tight tolerance is required as even the slightest clearance will make the tamper tilt. Normal looking leveling tampers have a tall slider where the leveling plate is attached to prevent this tilting. Can't fit a tall slider here as then it would no longer be a Pancake!
