Good morning,

I've watched some videos on making bottle stoppers. Some turners just screw the stopper into the hole of the piece that they just turned. I've seen a couple that make threads in the hole and then screw in the stopper.
I would think that just screwing the stopper in the hole along with adding a drop of glue would be good enough....am I wrong???

Also, where would you find pretty good deals on purchasing SS stoppers....let's say a quantity of 10?

Thank you
Dick

If you use a bottle stopper chuck, your piece will allready be tapped and ready for the stopper to be threaded in. Some people glue them, some dont. I typically use a drop of epoxy on the threads before I put it together for a final time.

Best stoppers made by a long shot are the Ruth Niles stoppers. 100% SS and 100%% made in the USA. You wont find a nicer lady to deal with either. She also sells them for much less than most other places sells SS stoppers. I use her chuck as well. The one that taps the threads as you screw the block on.

I'm for Ruth Niles also! Best quality and customer service anywhere. Hands down, the best SS you can find in a stopper.
