I bought a used large floor corker. Made the deal based on pictures, paid for it and received it on a quick meeting. When I returned home I found the following issues that I did not like in this corker:
Jaws that squeeze the cork, made of brass, are not perfectly flush with one another at the top surface. See 1st picture, Im not sure if that is OK or not.
The jaws and the hoist where you place the cork right before you squeeze it are kind of dirty, if I wipe them with white napkin black dusty residue comes out, how do I clean that effectively from all the jaws and their inner surfaces without using a chemical that will permanently taint my corks for the future?
Also the finger, or stick if you well, that pushes the cork down, it touches the front side of the cork holder or chamber. This have caused the threads of that stick to become flat (see 3ed picture) and cause the adjustable ring that is used to adjust how deep to push the cork to get stuck and not be able to go deep enough for Belgian bottles corking style.
Any ideas how to solve this 3 items?
