Default Well !&@%!

I'm thinking 12 years is about the limit for reuse on these things.

lol, I knew I wanted to keg before cleaning and capping one bottle. Cant imagine how many bottles you've cleaned and capped without kegging.

This started to happen to me as well. It was actually the capper that went bad, although I hadn't been brewing for 12 years like you. I got a bench capper, and the problem stopped!

Yeah. You should definitely keg. It's so much cheaper.

This. I broke so many bottles helping a friend bottle a couple of his batches with a wing capper. Granted, he was using twist- off bottles, but the point is that wing cappers put that kind of force on bottles. Bench cappers are so much nicer to use and don't have this problem.

True. But why move to a bench capper when the goal is to quit bottling? I am aware, not everyone shares my goals and aspirations.

Like you kind of implied, he never said that was his goal

And honestly, it's always good to have a decent capper. Even most keggers tend to bottle some of their stuff, whether it's a few bottles from each batch, or entire batches of certain beers (eg Belgians). Even better is to get a combination capper/corker.
