Making your own triple basket

Post by JohnB » Thu Apr 03, 2008 10:05 pm

Not being a particularly patient fellow I'm thinking about making my own triple basket. I'm assuming it is just a slightly deeper double basket so modifying a double is the way its done when the factory doesn't supply them??

Niko - Any chance you could post a pic of your triple next to a stock double & provide the overall height of the triple?

We'll have to see how it goes with the first one. If it turns out well & is economically feasible I may consider producing more.

Awesome!

I've always wondered if a double basket couldn't be "stretched" somehow, rather than attaching two pieces together. I have no idea how, but steel is ductile. And the sides would become thinner, which could be bad.

Triples do help certain beans, I find that some shots actually pull better with more coffee - this is hard to do when you run out of the head space on the Spaz, the triple comes in handy in situations like this.

i thought there already was a first batch; where did the triple baskets that some people already have come from; what number we are up to on the list 8)

Post by Niko » Thu Apr 10, 2008 8:29 pm

The 1st batch was a couple of years ago followed by another batch or two (can't remember exactly) but it was some time ago. Those are the baskets you're seeing on this site for the most part.
I believe only 5 people (or so) are shaved off the top of the current list but Tom can answer that better 8)

Yes, and it was the negative experience in making those batches that is causing the wait this time. It takes a custom made jig to weld the two halves together. Each time lino buys a new batch of baskets they're a different size than the last requiring him to build a whole new jig.

Do you have any idea how many he will be making in the next "batch". Will he try to get everyone on the list at least one or should those of us closer to the bottom of the list plan on a long wait? In which case I would proceed with making my own.

Basket Update

Post by Fred » Wed Apr 16, 2008 10:30 am

Lino sent an update to Tom and I recently. He has 50 baskets from me which would yield 25 triples if all goes well. He has cut all of the baskets and done most of the jig design work. He is awaiting some special tooling that he ordered (it just shipped). All said and done, he is hoping to have some baskets completed by mid May, but we'll have to keep our fingers crossed!

Thanks for the update. So those of us near the bottom of the list will be waiting until the next batch comes together whenever that might be. I just wanted to get an idea before I went to the trouble & expense of making some up myself. Since any baskets I make up (if I go that route) will be done in house without precision custom tooling I doubt they'll be as nice as Lino's but at least I'll have one or two before my V2 wears out.

Are folks interested in a triple basket so they overdose a double shot or just so they can put 24gr or so and 3oz (a triple?) in the Spaz for a real triple shot?

I had in mind a richer double. I expect that most of the cachet of the triple basket is connected to the desire for a big ristretto.

I am looking into a no weld triple basket option. I should receive what I need in 7-8 days & I'll post the results here.

Actually that may be the key to making these baskets fit. They shipped yesterday & are due in next Monday but the Fed Ex Ground service around here is horrendous so it could be longer.

No cutting or joining required as it is already a triple basket! :twisted:
