I'm trying to find tamper parts. I've recently bought a lathe and I've started making tampers, but as of now I've only seen this at Vermont freehand. Does anyone know of other sites?

Things like the tamper head, tubing, and poker. Mostly the tamper head.

What more do you need than a block of wood? See one of my tamps resting in this ash tray . . .

why not use an expended shell casing? Maybe .380 or 9mm would be a good size.

I plan trying a few things like using shells and doing an all wooden one also.

Ok , that pipe is cool as all get out !

As far as parts , if you have a grinder and maybe a belt sander.. that type thing , you could fabricate something . A small bench buffer for polishing would be good too
