Interesting. I have been recommended the Londinium Tool which has a loop at the end at based on the popularity i would expect it to be the most effective out there. May i know where did you get your information from? Also when you use acupuncture needles, do the needles scratch the bottom of your filter basket? do you stick a couple of needles into a cork and use it like a londinium tool or just by itself? I am currently using a toothpick and it has been working as far as i know.Jeff wrote:The tool for WDT or WDT-like actions matters immensely. Too large and it can cause more channeling than it prevents. I've found a toothpick too large. A 1 mm cake tester or 0.8 mm paperclip didn't harm, but didn't help much with my grinder. 0.3-0.4 mm acupuncture needles are my current choice. In my experience with a grinder that is generally un-lumpy, most of the wire out there is too wide to be effective. Loops or bends at the end seem to work against you as well.
Also shipping the londinium tool to AUS is unbelievably expensive. I'm looking for an alternative.
