Replaced all cappers/corkers I have
I purchased this for bottling beglians, and with lilttle practice, got our bottles perfect everytime. Less time spent corking wine bottles too than my Double Lever wine corker, and for capping with my Red Bottle capper and Black Beauty. Replaced my ancient bench capper from the 1960's too. It's bigger than you think, but built to be very sturdy.The only thing I'm not a fan of is the plastic nut that holds the lever/arm on, it has a tendency to come loose and needs to be re-tightened, or it falls off(maybe include 2 of those and a plastic locking washer?). Really not a big deal, just need to tighten it after every 4 or 5 bottles.

Works great
Pretty much the same story as Robert's review. I bottled 5 gallons (24 750ml bottles) of Belgian golden ale today and it went smooth as could be. I didn't find the need to remove the base as recommended in the BYO article. I left the corks a little farther out so I could just work the bottle loose from the corker collar without removing the base. I gave the cork a good push with the palm of my hand to insert another 1/8" or so, but even that probably wasn't necessary. I compared my bottles to a commercial Belgian and the cork looked exactly the same depth. You should definitely get this corker if you want to put beer in Belgian bottles. Well worth the price.

good machine
that is a good Italic machine. The result of capping and corking is excellent.

Wish I'd bought it years ago
It corks, it caps, and it works on European caps! One of my favorite brew gadgets.

Fantastic buy
I bought my Colonna just over a week ago. Last weekend I bottled a batch of Rhubarb wine and this weekend I bottled beer. The corks were a breeze and I didn't mess up a single cap, they all looked like a machine did it. This is one of the best tools I've bought to make things easier!

On great machine!
I just capped 54 bottles of Irish Red Ale last night and it was a breeze. When I first started using it I was pulling the arm down slowly and the cap would get stuck in the capper.Then I started bringing down the arm smartly with a bit of force and that stopped the stuck caps.I can't wait to cork with it as well.

Excellent!
Have only used for corks - makes it a snap to bottle!

Great product
I bought this a few months back to do Belgians with. After you get your depth figured out and marked it makes bottling a breeze. It also works well for odd shaped bottles that a twin lever capper has trouble taking care of such as Corona or Heineken bottles. My only complaint it that there is a magnet inside the bell with slots that the knurls on caps go into when capping and doesn't crimp them all the way down. To solve this I just press and rotate the bottle three times. I haven't had and issues with leaky caps yet.

Works as described
So, I pretty much got this thing so I could cork my belgian strong ales. It works just fine. I also like this capper because I have found some cool "stubby" bottles that my hand capper won't work on. So, this works great on stubby bottles and belgian corks.

Great capper, never corked
I wanted the option to cork even though IDK if i ever plan to do any wine.... That being said, this capper is great! Great adjustable heights for different size bottles, and easy to use... Side note: Northern brewer is awesome! First capper i received had a chip on the bottom and a crack across the top of the base... I asked to return it for a non damaged capper and they just sent me a new one and allowed me to keep the old one for parts as there are a lot of moving/ replaceable parts on this capper... NB is a stand-up business and I have since given them all of my business.... thanks guys!
