Thanks for the advice.
I'm confused. What's going on? The bell sucks in the cap? Which model bench capper do you have? I have a super agata.

Sorry....my description wasnt clear enough.
The bell suck the cap in....holding the bottle. It is not that it sucks it in...but it gets stuck there. I have a similar one to yours.

So you did try taking the magnet out? I think it makes the round edge form better on the cap, allowing it to come out easier. Also, are these mostly long necks or short necks or both? I almost gave up on my bench capper after getting it for the same reason. It took a while to work out the kinks, but once I did, I can't imagine going back to a wing capper.

I agree. The super agata bench capper has taken a little getting used to. But I def won't be going back to a wing capper. I've just started getting to where I'm pretty quick with the super agata. Now where's that vasoline?...

hey Reverend

I cant get the magnet out.

I am using one of these and the magnet cannot be screwed out.

I also have a super agata like unionrdr. I get an occasional slightly stuck bottle, but not stuck enough to be a problem. I never lube the bell. I can literally cap any size or brand of bottle with that thing. I love it!

I found after 50 or so bottles, they became super easy to get out, I think it takes some wearing in. Never broke a bottle, they weren't that tight.

Mine always get stuck fairly firmly, I gently pull the bottle down and sideways a little and it drops out, just don't wrap your finger under the base of the bottle when you do it

I've been using my Super Agata for years with no problem. i did buy an antique bench capper from a flea market not too long ago that the bottles get stuck though.
