Crown Capping Machine

I've just ordered a crown top capping machine. Its the machine for 138.10 that's the second down on this link.

It looks as though its going to be ideal for our requirements and I'm really chuffed,    because we've also saved a stack of money by buying from this company rather than the one that we use for most of our cider making equipment. They were given the chance but weren't prepared to budge on price.
They wanted 160 plus vat and carriage for the identical piece of kit as compared with 138. 10p.

Looks the dogs gonads.

I use the 3rd Crown capper down, but there Again I'm not do thousands of bottles.

Talking of bottles Bodger, where do you get yours from?

I'm looking for about 200, 750ml screw top bottles.

I have an address in Germany, they seem quiet reasonable with their prices, but was just wondering where you get your bottles from.

Funnily enough, I've ordered two pallets today. One pallet of 75cl straight necked mineral bottles and the other one of 500 ml clear coloured beer bottles. There's 812 bottles on the first one and 1235 on the second. With carriage and a charge for the pallets plus a 1000 crown caps, the total bill comes to 547. I'll PM with the suppliers details.

As said looks the dogs....as said earlier...love new toys...

I think that my next purchase is more than likely going to be a load of Ready-mix concrete so that I can use a pallet truck to get the bottles under cover.

Nice (again!)

It was delivered ten minutes ago. I'm starting to feel fairly professional.

A crowning moment!

The bottles and caps to go with it should be here on Tuesday. We'll be opening a 50 gallon wooden barrel for this weekends cider sale and with the holiday season being all but over, I don't anticipate us selling that much of it, so rather than waste it, we'll try the new machine out and bottle it.
