I machined out a tamper head for Nate. It was a quick little project, and I was glad to help a fellow brother out. For payment I told him to send me a tin of tobacco and we would call it even. I picked up the mail yesterday, the package felt heavy for one tin, this was the contents. Needless to say I was floored, three great blends. I've said it before the spirit of Brotherhood here is something special.

Wow! I'd like to see a tamper picture worth all of that. Brotherhood indeed.

From the looks of the tamper you made for him it is well deserved! It might have been a quick and easy project for you to turn the beauty, but it's a fantastic looking piece that most of us have neither the skills nor equipment to produce! I'm looking forward to seeing the wood handle if nate decides to go that rout. I think it looks fantastic as is!
My girlfriends' father has many metal lathes that he has been excited to show me (he's the only man in the house and I don't think the wife or daughter humour his hobbies) - I think he might enjoy teaching me to make something like that tamp.
I hope you enjoy the tobacco! Margate is a fine english - I just had a bag of it delivered after thoroughly enjoying the first several bowls from a tin.

Well said Drez!! I couldn't agree more! I felt like maybe I should've sent more! An update on that wonderful tamp! I've sent it off to Michael Parks who's going to do the woodwork. I believe, in the end, this will be the coolest pipe tamp that's ever been made! And it would never have happened otherwise!! THANK YOU!

I'm thinking this may be true! I can't wait to see the finished piece though I suspect it will make me very jealous.
