Standard handheld. Most domestic use the ones that take normal crown caps

If it's the bigger sized caps you need the larger bell, then you have to turn your plates over on the red barron/Emily capper and buying a 29mm capping bell.

And these caps from Norther Brewer.

I soak pry off bottles in a hot.soluition of oxyclean FREE for about 30 min. In the sink. Then the labels come right off and with a sponge or brush the glue comes off. Then I rinse well with freshwater then off to the dishwasher for the sanitizing cycle ( no detergent). After that I bottle directly from the dishwasher passing through a bucket of star San to cool them a little and sanitize them just before bottling. Also if you spill some All you have to do os close the dishwasher and run a rinse cycle. It's not Necessarily the right way, but it's my way. Have fun!

Also I have not had good luck with some Mexican beer bottles.
