Wood River Bottle Stopper Kit in Stainless Steel
The 300 Series Stainless Steel Bottle Stopper may be a little more expensive than the traditional chrome or black titanium plated stoppers, but it is well worth the extra expense.
Designed to last a lifetime, the stopper is 100% solid stainless steel with no plating at all, so it is corrosion resistant and will not flake or pit like some others on the market. This makes it suitable for long term use in cordial, sherry or other fortified wines which may corrode plated stoppers.
Materials used are food- and pharmaceutical industry-safe, so cross contamination will not be an issue.
In addition, this kit includes a solid food grade silicone insert that will fit securely in any bottle.
This woodturning kit requires a wooden or synthetic blank, 11/32" (9mm) bit, counter sink bit, and mandrel, all sold separately. After drilling your pilot hole, it will be necessary to bore a slight countersink to allow the blank to thread snug and flush to the base of the stopper. Bore 23mm deep. Due to the large diameter thread it is best to tap a M10 x 1,5 thread into the blank. Then mount on a 10mm mandrel as shown in picture. Turn and finish as desired. Remove from mandrel and screw on to stopper.
