Yes, I have used them with success. The vessel is a (1) glass (2) bottle. I'm baffled why it should be different if it is threaded on the outside. A cork of a proper size would function inside the neck of the bottle just as it would with a traditional wine bottle.
It's not as if you're talking about making sparkling wine in it. If it's clean and a sound bottle, I just don't get why it would be a problem. My corker worked fine with screw cap bottles, too.
Mostly, my bottles are recycled from friends. As a result I get bottle leftovers from Boone's to Bordeaux. They all work, as long as they have been cleaned out reasonably.
I have actually bought some bottles, mostly to give wine as gifts in packs (375 ml clear ones to show the colors -- with instructions to protect the contents from light). Mostly, I use whatever I can scrounge, so I can focus on putting my money in the bottles (quality ingredients), and not in bottles.
