When I got my gaggia, one of my concerns was actually a PF that was full =
size.
:)  So, yes. yes I did.

Actually, my life has become an unbalanced rat race right now. As Alchemist
John knows, my job at the hospital has changed and it has changed again in
the last couple of weeks and I am proactively trying to get it changed even
more. Sound confusing? Well life is confusing right now. I have two Olympia
remakes to finish. A huge custom order from England, a special order from
Canada, along with a unique project from Japan just to keep life
interesting. Besides I have a few custom tamper orders to finish, very
little inventory for Christmas, and the coffee scoops are doing well. I
almost forgot, I have PF handle orders coming out the ears too! So, with
that said your thoughts and prayers would be appreciated. I am doing the
best I can. At least with my wholesale orders, I have blanks made up for SM
and Chris' Coffee, so Maria will have tampers next week.

As a delighted owner of an espresso machine with 100% Thor parts (no  
plastic!) I can testify that Thor merchandise is worth waiting for - as  long as it 
may take. I was surprised to see how much of these kinds of  woods that Les 
uses are used to make musical instruments. People wait years for  these custom 
made musical instruments and are happy just to be on the  waiting list. 
 
And as long as you wait, you'll have much longer to enjoy the results. I am  
still getting high every time I look at my machine and use the Striped New  
Guinea knobs and handles. I actually carried the tamper around the  house with 
me the first three days before I could finally just leave  it in the kitchen. 
These are one of a kind lovingly hand-crafted  items that give so much 
enjoyment - I would like to think that the person  making these beautiful items was 
enjoying making them as much as I was  enjoying using them. 
 
So please give Les some room to enjoy what he does. If you didn't  place your 
order sooner, then just be thankful that your order is placed now and  that 
someday you'll have your tamper - forever.
