Default Euro style bottle caps

So i have a ferrari Bench corker.
I was wondering if anyone knows if they make a capping atachment for bottles and if so it works with the large euro style bottle caps?

I am capping some botled with corks in them and would rather cap than hood them.

Cheers
pat

Do you have a separate capper? I was going to do wine corks + caps using my red baron wing capper which could switch out the standard bell to a 29mm (European) bell. I didn't end up doing this as I found a cheap corker that could do Belgian mushrooms, but that was my plan originally.

I didnt know you could swap out the capper.

I would first make sure you can take out the bell on your capper, I'm not sure if all red cappers are the same haha..but here is a link to the bell:

I would think with a few hardware store parts, you'd be able to adapt this bell to your bench corker too.

edit: and here is the red baron:

Thanks for the info this saves me from spending the extra cash on a second capper.

Yeah, if you can swap the bell you can use the same capper. I've been doing that to put my beer in champagne bottles. I can't remember where i got the caps from at the moment though. About half the online beer suppliers seem to have the euro caps and the bells.

Since you already have a corker, this won't be helpful to you Pat, but maybe it will for someone who finds this in the future. Since I started doing wine and many belgians/sours I had been looking around for something that I could use to cork both. I found this how-to which was very helpful and its the corker I ended up buying. Worked great for Belgians with mushrooms (haven't bottled any wines yet):

Its roughly the same price as a bench corker, and it comes with both bells so you can also use it to cap both types of bottles that will take a crown cap. If you buy this online, be careful as the company makes an almost identical looking model thats cheaper but is only a capper.
