Product Information:

Turn your own unique handles for these solid chrome stoppers and quickly create a great gift that all wine lovers will appreciate. Silicon rubber O-rings seal the bottle, and unlike traditional cork stoppers, the metal stoppers will not transfer taste and smell to other bottles. Simply drill a 7/32" hole in your wood blank, screw the blank onto the mandrel and turn to your favorite shape! The starter set is a great value – it includes four stoppers, one mandrel and one bit. Also requires wood or man-made material blank, sold separately.

  • Durable plated finish
  • A great value – includes four stoppers, one mandrel and one bit
  • O-rings seal the bottle
  • Chrome finish imparts no taste to beverage
  • Wood or man-made material blanks sold separately

    Comments about Bottle Stopper Starter Set Turning Kit - Chrome :

    first of all, at the price that your paying you don't really get any special value. you are better off buying the stoppers, drill bit, and mandrel separate. the drill bit is to big to start off with. yes you can get by with the drill provided, you just have to glue the stud into the wood when you assemble it. The mandrel that came with mine sheared off inside the wood..my guess is just poor quality steel. it snapped under regular use on its second bottle stopper. Im going to try the Whiteside mandrel and hopefully i don't get the same result. So basically if you buy this package your pretty much buying 2 mandrels and 2 drill bits. save a few bucks and buy them separate.

    Comments about Bottle Stopper Starter Set Turning Kit - Chrome :

    These could be very nice gifts but it will take a while to turn the threads on the mandrel down so the stopper threads will fit in snug. The drill bit is also too large but that was easily fixed by just using a smaller drill bit.

    Comments about Bottle Stopper Starter Set Turning Kit - Chrome :

    The stopper itself is good looking and appears well made. The problem is the included studs are the wrong size. Too small for the threads in the stopper and the mandril. You can solve it by replacing the stud with a cut off 1/4" x 20 x 1 1/2" stainless bolt, but you shouldn't have to. I am waiting for Woodcraft to respond to my request for the proper size studs.

    Comments about Bottle Stopper Starter Set Turning Kit - Chrome :

    For a starter set it is a great value, however the drill bit supplied is too big and therefore the included mandrel stripped out in the hole. I compensated with a smaller drill bit and the problem seemed to go away. The threads in the stopper itself are very loose and a drop of glue or epoxy is needed to keep everything tight.

    Comments about Bottle Stopper Starter Set Turning Kit - Chrome :

    A good starter kit for wine stoppers, but my kit did not come with O Rings. Looking at the web site and the package the kit comes in, it does not list the O rings as part of the kit. It would have been nice to see something said about the rings not part of the kit so I could have gotten them the same time I got the kit. So the stopper are usless right now until I can order the rings or head back up to the store and pick up some - if they have any there since I never seen them for sale at the store.

    Mandrel works well in hardwood. If doing soft wood might consider a slightly smaller dia. drill.
