This capper is listed on kijiji near me for $25. Does it look like it will work?

I know the best option would be to bring a couple different bottles and some caps and try it out, but I don't want to get my hopes up if something is obviously flawed with it.

If the head is the right size, it should work fine (assuming the mechanism hasn't rusted in place). Cappers are relatively simple devices. Try not to get tetanus!
