Wood = scrap
electrical conduit = left over
crown = red emily capper

Total Cost = $0.00

The white arm provides leverage which lowers the crown assembly that caps the bottle. Simple as that.

I like it. Thinking of modifying this design; incorporate the build into our over the counter kitchen cabinets...

Where do you get the crown? I cleaned up a rusty old capper for a friend, but it really needs a new crown.

Sometimes the most elegant designs are the simplest. No need to Rube Goldberg something when simplicity will suffice. Good Job!
