You're right...it does dent the top of the corks. I would think if the shaft of the corker was larger, it wouldn't have that problem. It is a minor problem and since shipping a floor corker wasn't financially a good move since I am in Costa Rica...
I had to make this work. So far...it is working. Just have to live with the dented corks and put the wine bottle on the floor. Putting it on a towel does soften the surface.
