I have a Portuguese floor corker - it works great - but it leaves a dimple in the top. Is there any way around this?
Thats a pretty cool idea. How are you applying the wax? I had gotten some you just put in a hot glue gun. I put a dab on the side of the bottle towards the top and then used a stamp to emboss it.It was for xmas gifts in 2008 but have'nt used it since. I didn't apply it to the top as I always use shrink capsuls.True. Maybe Tom will chime in with advice? I've just been filling the dimple with wax and stamping my initial into it. Make's it looks fancy and hid the dimple.
I use Supreme Corq X2 synthetic #9 Wine Cork 1 3/4" - i do it in one motion - however i do it probably slower than what you are explaining.I do not get dimples in my corks from my Port. Floor Corker. Most of my bottles are bordeaux and I use the synthetic 1 1/2" corks. Thoughts on this is are your corks too long? Does this happen with various bottles? Are you quick at the corking? Do not slowly apply pressure, pull the lever with one full motion. Have you tried other corks?
I use Supreme Corq X2 synthetic #9 Wine Cork 1 3/4".I dont get them using my Port floor corker either and is 1 reason I stopped using the hand corker to rid my corks of this dimple. What kind of corks are you using and how do you prepare your corks?
Come on guys, did you replace your mom when your sister came out with dimples or did you say oh how cute! Did you cover them up with wax or did you use them to you advantage of being considered pretty! LOL just a thought for the day.I get dimples from my port hand corkers. You're not alone. No soloution yet on my part.
