bottle capper fret press mod

Postby Clay Schaeffer » Sat Dec 08, 2018 8:24 pm

For those who like to modify things and want an inexpensive fret press here is a possible solution - modifying a bottle cap press to accept a home made fret press caul. The mods are reversible, so when it comes time to bottle your home brew you can remove them and use it for it's original purpose. The fret caul is a scrap of phenolic (richlite) as is the bit on the handle that the rubber band attaches to. Used cast iron bottle cappers can be found on ebay for about $10.
