Description

The Deluxe Bench Capper is one of the sturdiest cappers we have used.  It is almost completely metal, is vertically adjustable for different sized bottles, and can accomodate both 26 mm and 29 mm caps.

The base features a bottle stop that will help you place the bottles in the perfect place everytime, making quick work of the bottling process.  This capper is definitely one of our favorites, and is probably the last capper you'll ever have to buy!

This thing will last for a lifetime, and it's solid enough to mean less bad capping jobs and less chipped bottles.

This looks like the best capper that I have seen online at any price. Also advertises the different size caps that it can do. Others don't specify sizes.

I used it in the brewer I worked at before and it's a great capper.
What pieces are plastic and does it compare top the Queen Lux in terms of construction?
Christopher Dietz on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The only pieces that are plastic are the knobs on the handles which are only for ergonomics . Other than that it’s all metal. This thing is built like a tank! I’ve probably put 100k bottles through it in the last year and it still works amazing. It was worth every penny. I’ve never used the Queen lux so I cant compare, but this capper will outlast me.
I have recently lost the flex on the interior spring, resulting in a very difficult capping process. Does anyone know how to restore the factory flex to the interior parts, for a smoother and less strenuous capping process?
Buster Brown on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I dissamble the whole capper, clean it, remove old grease, clean ir and put back together with some new lubricant, and its working like new

Italian made heavy metal. A bit pricy, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.

No More Procrastination!
I was on the fence about this for a couple years, high dollar. The plastic one was twenty less... When I read the review that "if you sharpened this thing you could chop wood with it" That got to me. I like things with duel purpose. I was thrilled when I opened the box, and found a tool that, if you sharpened it, you COULD chop wood, use it as a canoe anchor, with a little junkyard ingenuity, jack up car, or truck, use it for ballast in the winter, knock an intruder silly. I am sure there is some logging use for this! Not only could you use it for all these things, but future generations would be set! FOREVER! This thing is so overbuilt, I just laugh every time I look at it! It brings immense joy. It also caps beer bottles. If you are planning on only brewing a couple of batches, there would be better choices, this thing is for the long run.

660 Bottles Capped So Far, It's Great
I have a small microbrewery and we did our first two bottling runs with this. First run was 240 x 500 ml bottles. Second run was 420 x 500ml bottles. I was able to fill bottles with a beer gun in my right hand and cap with my left.

Worth the money.
Awesome capper works as described. Made life a whole lot easier using this rather than the hand held capper

Beast Capper
My hand capper started to wear out so I decided to go with a bench capper and after researching decided on this one. The price seemed a little high (at first), but I didn't want to ever have to buy another one. It arrived today and I am not disappointed...this capper is a beast! Solid, heavy, sturdy, steel. If you sharpened the base you could probably chop a tree down with this thing.

I tested capping a couple of bottles and it worked like a charm. It comes with two bells, 1 x 26mm and 1 x 29mm and I think they are milled from aluminum or some alloy. You will want to lube the inside of the bell with some cooking spray or very light oil because the fit is very tight. The crimp was perfect...with my hand capper there always seemed to be a slightly off crimp that sometimes made me think I might not have a good seal (although that never happened). There is also a magnet to hold your cap, although you'll want to align it a bit before pressing the cap. Many have commented on the cheap bottle aligner...I don't disagree but think it is adequate, and you may not use it anyway. The picture on the MoreBeer site shows the base and mast is black, but mine came in blue (see pic). I've never been one for style and more concerned with utility, but if you're concerned about the look/feel, you might ask about that. I can paint it if it really starts to annoy me. Finally, you'll want to mount this to a bench or piece of wood as when you apply force to the handle you'll need to stabilize the base with your other hand (or while holding the bottle). A clamp would probably be good if you didn't want to mount it permanently.

The only complaint I have is the capper was apparently shipped from Italy with the spare bell just floating around in the box and there was zero packing around the capper. Because this beast is virtually indestructible I guess I can understand, but the bell did chip/scratch a couple of spots of paint...not a huge deal, but a little packing/tape could prevent this issue. I can understand why MoreBeer wouldn't want to open every box to add packing because then folks might complain about having a used capper...likely not worth the hassle.

Very impressed with this machine and highly recommended. Also impressed with MoreBeer customer service...I forgot to use a discount code when I ordered, but emailed them about it and they applied the discount!
