I know this subject just ran through but I'm still not sure which corker I
want to buy. The Italian or the Portuguese. I see the Italian corker comes
with a bottle cap capper attachment but it's recommended that you do not use
the attachment unless you are doing odd bottling jobs (small runs only).
There is a fair difference in price between the two but I would rather buy
the better of the two now, not later. The Italian has the brass iris and
seems to be the better material but how much wear does the iris really get?
Then, the Portuguese model is a little smaller so it should be easier to
store, right? And how about the length of the plunger arm? The Italian is
longer so it should be easier to use but is the difference really that
Thanks for re-visiting this for me!
PS. Here's the link to a neat video on both being used (thanks Dave A.)
