I regularly cap both styles of bottle lip as posted by mrzud a few posts up. I thought that my capper wouldn't cap the ones on the right, but it does. I prefer the ones on the left though as they're slightly easier to cap.

However, the other side appears to be 29 mm.. larger than the 26 mm size that slips over the neck of my bottles... neat though. Now if I can just figure out how to change the plates around...

Of course he's correct - he's a damn sound bloke !

You can either use a pair of pliers to pull the plates out or use a flat headed screwdriver to push them out from the other side.

The trick with capping the bottles with the smaller lip is to exert pressure to force the wings of the capper into the bottleneck and then once it has grabbed it, force the wings down to push the cap on.

It took me a bit of practice but once I'd sussed it out the method seems to work quite well.
