T.D.
     I no longer have a Rocky but in the pursuit of a 27 second pull,  =
I find I make small adjustments to the Mazzer Major more than half  
the time.  Sometimes when I switch coffees it will take as much as a  
quarter of a turn to finally dial in the new coffee.  So, yes the  
coffee does often call for what would seem to be extreme adjustments  
in the grinder.  So far I haven't tried to keep track of which  
coffees like which adjustment but rather accept that I will probably  
toss the first couple of shots with each new coffee.

I came across an automatic tamper-someone suggested it a few weeks ago.  It=
's like a regular tamper, but when you push 30#, it clicks so you know you =
are done.  It eliminates one of the varialbes of getting a good shot.

I trained myself for a 35# tamp a few years ago by pressing the  
tamper on a scale.  Back in May I attended the South Home Roaster  
User Group meeting number 7 at Counter Culture Coffee's new Atlanta.   =
They had a scale with a tamper there on a counter and I closed my  
eyes, pushed my 35#, and when it felt right I opened my eyes and  
looked at a 34# reading.  I concluded the scales were off.
    For a tamper that fits in with Tom's coffees look at the Thor  
tampers about two-thirds of the way down this page:
