After a long time lusting after some of these products I took the plunge on the tall funnel and wdt tool. After a long delivery time they arrived last week and I’m suitable impressed.
I’m upgrading from the Normcore funnel which is another Decent clone but considerably cheaper. It using magnets too and sits outside allowing straight through tamping, but the magnets are weak and I also got grounds between the funnel and lip of the basket. But the SWORKS one does everything Sheldon claims. It’s a very strong grip and not a trace of coffee gets in between. I’m now dosing striaght into it from the niche and it’s still a no mess process and even quicker.
The wdt tool is also very nice. A choice not only of needle size but also angle. I’m using 9 × 0.22mm for now on narrower setting. It’s a slightly better experience than my Etsy plastic over but that’s likely the slightly thinner needless. It’s nice they can’t stick into you as round tips and the magnet is nice touch as I didn’t get a stand, but might add one later.
They aren’t cheap but certainly deliver on value, the funnel especially is well worth it over cheap ones.
I’m interested how others have set up the wdt needles.
