Currently I am making two styles of stoppers, cork and the metal o-ring type from Rockler (http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18020&filter=wine%20stopper). I like the crome o-ring type from Rockler because of it’s sealing capability. I presently get my cork from Packard Woodworks (http://www.packardwoodworks.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=packard&Product_Code=151322&Category_Code=proj-supp-botstop-botsc) and can make stoppers cheaply and use them as a loss leader at the bazaars I attend. Does anyone have any better suggestions on the o-ring type, i.e. cheaper then Rockler. I can’t justify paying almost $7 for the stopper, making the head and trying to get a decent price for them. I sell the cork stopper for $5 and lately asking $10 for the o-ring type (and not selling many). Any suggestion on how to cut the overhead?????
I know, I know, who leaves a bottle of wine open long enough to need a superior sealing wine stopper……..
