I just threaded a new 29mm Capper bell onto my Red Baron, put a 29mm gold crown cap on a champagne bottle, and pulled the handles down.
I tried pulling it off handles still attached, no dice.
I unscrewed the Red Baron, and tried to pry up with my thumbs, but the bell is stuck.
Having never closely observed whether the steel jaws on the RB actually crimp the cap bottom, or just grip the glass rim to pull the bell down, I’m not really sure what the issue/point of failure is. Have only bottled once with 40 or so regular beer bottles and nothing stuck.
Any solutions appreciated. Hate to lose such a large capital outlay on the first test production run…
