    I agree, this is somewhat silly discussion. This type of 3/8 eye-lag has a safe weight range of
    125-200 pounds (depending on who made it) with a 4:1 safety margin (meaning the failure weight
    is 500+po...

    I have an italian floor corker, and use it all the time for Belgian bottles, but with slight
    trick---first, set up the corker to fully insert a cork into the wine bottle (using the

    Dig the concept. Much better vessel for long term aging than a small barrel.-Tyeah, and you can

    I started bottling, got tired of the wing capper after 1 batch (48 bottles). Just started
