Ordered/received within four days on normal delivery (3-5 days). Works a treat, even using old caps as a trial, it seals the beer bottles perfectly. Now to get my home brew going :)
********************************************************************************************************************
After three full brew runs I can now honestly say that this is sadly a waste of money IMHO :(
Even when trying my damndest to ensure I keep equal pressure on both handles to ensure even application of pressure to the cap the damn thing still fails to secure the cap properly . The only way I have managed to get it to cap correctly is to force down the centre of the capper then apply pressure until it decides to slip/disengage. I then have to turn the capper or bottle 180 degrees to have a chance of it sealing the bottle. Pain in the ring and adds a helluva time to bottling/ capping .
I am at the stage that I am quite concerned when using it as I feel that it will do more damage to the bottles as it seems to require a worryingly high amount of pressure to cap correctly, if at all.At first the handles capped the bottle when the handles were roughly parallel to the table. Now they are at about 30 degrees further down before they cap, again if they do cap. All I can assume is that all the linkages and fittings are failing or wearing out extremely quickly.

Does what its meant to, it has a magnet so you can miss the top of the bottle so its just an all round piece of kit.
Worth the buy, i'm still using now.

Fabulous

The item arrived promptly after i ordered it... that is the only reason it gets 2 stars as opposed to just 1.

Bought this to cap my first brew, bought cheaply because i thought this could be an item i could be tight fisted about. it bottled the first 17 bottles okay, not great, but manageable. It kept sliding around and i had to recap a couple of them, but I expected not every bottle to cap perfectly first time.
Come bottle 18 it got stuck, a little bit of wiggling the handles and it came off, only it came off without the metal cap that sits over the bottle cap keeping everything in (sort of) place... needless to say the capper went from being a moderately useful piece of plastic and metal to a useless piece of junk. I'd need some really strong metal - plastic glue to get it back into a usable condition, and a lot more time than I had to spare.

So basically no, bad product (or maybe i just got the faulty one in an otherwise bad batch, however this always seems to happen for me so I'm less than happy) 2 Stars

Works well and has a magnetic insert to locate the cap prior to capping. Easy and saves a lot of messing around.

There is really only so much to say about this product! Initial impressions were that it's a bit more 'plasticy' than I imagined, but it's metal where it counts and the handles feel sturdy.
Simply place the cap on the bottle, put the capper in place (it has a little magnet to hold the cap too) and press both levers down and it grabs the bottle and crimps the cap in place. Then just fully retract the levers again and there you go!
The motion really requires that you put some weight onto the bottle, but it didn't take much forcing at all.
That's all there is to say. This is one of those 'hobby' items that you can tell cost you a lot more than it did the manufacturer, but hey, it's a bit of a niche product that you'll probably only have to buy once, so a tenner isn't unreasonable for the assurance that your beer is being stored air-tight. The other option is really just one of those single-lever table-top cappers and after using one of these I don't really see what extra they would offer.

Seems a bit flimsy and I've been worried that it is going to break but I've capped around 200 bottles so far and it has held up ok.

It sometimes struggles to get a decent purchase on the bottle neck, more down to bottle design than anything else. Bottles like Hobgoblin have a rounded neck and don't work with it.

Overall, it was cheap enough and has served me ok so far. If it breaks I'll make a bench capper using the capping bell from inside this device.
