the tamper is a stone, we've had it a little over a year now and so far so good. only thing i don't like about it is that it is kind of loud, but hey it works. thanks for looking

Towns can become PITAs really quick.

Very interesting, looks nice. I cant beat you up on your pavers because i dont do them. Show some pics of walls when you get done, thats my thing. Good luck on a nice looking project.
