    Hi folks - I'm looking for some help finding a capper for some "new" bottles I found. I ran across an almost full case of amber stubby bottles from, I believe, the 1970's (US) all embossed with "No Deposit No Return" and "Not to be Refilled", see picture. I thought they would make cool novelty bottles for some of my homebrew, but my capper (see picture) doesn't work on this style neck/finish. Does anyone know if there are cappers available that can cap this style bottle? Thanks, Mike

    you have to use a top capper , not a wing like you have that relies on the lip to be in a certain spot to clamp down on
