That hourglass of the right is by far the most value/money efficient tool. It is a 30 seconds sand timer that cost me one dollar or so and is as usable as the rest of the stuff near it. There is no way I would be pressing a button on some electronic timer, let alone messing with a cellphone and such but this thing is real joy to use. If you got hit by upgradis and the budget is tight consider this one.

The most favourable tool for me in your pic is the wooden portafilter stand!

Great Job!

Thanks ! you are right. If do not count cost of all the woodworking tools I collected over the years and the time I spent making it, it was essentially free :-)
