Description 

This unique design is like the steering rack of a car with rack and pinion steering. Turn the three handled capping lever and it turns against the gear slots cut out of the back of the capping shaft. Very simple, very sturdy, and the only bench capper available where you do not have to slide the capping head on a shaft to adjust. Caps bottles from 8" to 15" tall. Features a 26mm machined capping head (for standard beer bottles). Due to the different gear ratio, this capper requires more crimping force from the user than our Chrome and Steel Commercial Cappers. 25" tall. Made in Italy.

This is an upgrade from my old plastic hand capper. I got it mainly so I could cap any beer bottle. The plastic cappers require a certain style neck to grab on to crimp properly, this doesn’t have that problem. The all metal construction weighed heavily on my decision, as did the rack & pinion design that requires no adjusting of parts up & down for different size bottles. I don’t regret the purchase for a second. The instructions say to keep the mechanism lubricated, it was already greased from the factory, so no worries there. Instructions also say to lube the bell, but makes no mention of the type of lube. I used a bit of synthetic motor oil on a q-tip, as it’s all I had on hand. The bottles do stick when capped, a gentle rotating action pops them free. It doesn’t take much force to get it to release, and at no time did I feel I was in danger of breaking a bottle. I would recommend this capper to anyone, and I’m looking forward to mounting it on a table when I finish my new brewery.

Excellent capper!
I have only used this for one batch so far but couldn’t be more pleased.  Night and day difference between this product and the plastic Ferrari model I was using.  Much better seal and don’t have to worry about it breaking in the middle of a batch.

Impressed
I always hated the wing cappers, they always felt like they were one bottle away from breaking. Mine creaked and cracked and just never seemed right. I bought this bench capper and would highly recommend it. Very sturdy and well made. If you do a lot of bottling throw away those wing cappers and get one of these

My last capper
I've owned several cappers over the years - from the wing style to bench models. This is by far the best. As others have stated, the bottles tend to get stuck, but after lubrication and use it eventually stops. This is well made with only a little plastic where it doesn't matter, and it looks nice too. You won't be disappointed with this model.

Can this also be used for corking wine bottles?
No, the head is for crown caps only, and does not work with corks.

So I am assuming there is no 29mm interchangeable crowning head for this model. that really would be a great option!! I see there is a replacement same size head available though. Will the other bench capper's 29mm threadable head fit this crowner??
We do have a 29mm head for the rack and pinion capper. It is item I06 and the price is $9.99
