Currently I am making two styles of stoppers, cork and the metal o-ring type from Rockler ( I like the crome o-ring type from Rockler because of it’s sealing capability. I presently get my cork from Packard Woodworks ( 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……..

I buy most of my turning supplies from either Craft Supply or Penn State. They have good prices especially if you buy in bulk.

Good luck,

I buy from which sell for $3.35 each…but my next batch of stoppers I will buy from this vendor.

Also if you haven’t noticed, the chrome stopper will break down and flake off due to the wine vapor.
I had a stopper in one of my wine bottles and after 5 days the chrome was missing at the tip of the stopper.

I’ve never tried the chrome ones before. Good to know. Thanks for the heads up Vince.

I have not had any complaints on the crome ones so I will keep an eye on them. I will check out your references. What about the silicon ones from PSI and other places? Any good? I am always looking for ways to cut overhead and supply a decent product to the customer.
