Congratulation, I love mine
Leveling tool, it help to tamp straight , but not necessary at all ( and something else to adjust )
I think a londinium tool like ( or tooth pick ) , you need it absolutely
Self-leveling tamper , probably nice to use , but really unnecessary, if you have a leveling tool
Like nuketopia, mine is factory setting, and with good coffee , and good distribution ( maybe because my grinder ), you could have sooooo nice nectar .
