Very easy to adjust. Look at the plunger that push the cork. You will have a disk that block the adjustment mechanism. So turn this disk counterclockwise a little. Now you can turn the plunger to screw or unscrew to fine tune your adjustment. There's a small hole in the shaft of the plunger so you can insert a small screwdriver to turn it more easely or do it by hand. Look at it closely and you will find it.
Thanks seb, I actually figured it out yesterday withthe help of another member. The bottom piece of metal that connects to the cable was not inserted into the slot. I put is through the slot and then adjusted the cable properly and it works great. The platform locks in place perfectly when inserting corks. It is a fine piece of equipment no dimples on the corks and it is effortless.
Thanks for your post.

I could not agree with you more inregards to MOREWINE.
The corker I recieved from the supplier had a slight defect. Although it was still functional, I decided to return it anyway, because I knew the defect would always bother me. Long story short, I called gw kent, they gave me there ups number and I returned it, and they sent another corker, turn around time was less than two weeks. Good job and great customer service, as well as great products for a great price. My experience at morewine, however was not the same. Returning items was painful and time consuming.

Has anyone tried using the Rapid 12 with synthetic corks? Does it suffer from the same problems?

I think that the Swiss rapid 12 is probably a nice corker, but it is more $ than I could justify paying.

Just asking, because as long as the cork is well seated, I have not seen any issues with the dimples.
I own both a portugese and an italian floor corker and they both make dimples. It's just easier to use the italian one IMHO.
