NOTE:
The type of plastic on the top and base is ABS. ABS has good chemical and stress-cracking resistance to inorganic salt solutions, alkalis, mineral acids (except strong oxidizing acids), and some mineral, vegetable, and animal oils. Petroleum-based oils, solvents, and paints SHOULD NOT BE USED, as they will cause the material to craze. There is a possibility that the plastic can be damaged by powders with a high oil content of eugenol. Eugenol is an essential oil that is contained in herbs such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and bay leaf. * Generally we do not recommend to use these capsules with oils. Doing so will be at your own risk.


Capsule Sizing Information

Chart not to scale

"00" holds about 735 mg.

One teaspoon will fill about 5 "00" capsules. The weight depends on the density of the powder you are using. Some powders are much denser than others. It also depends on the fineness of the powder. The only way to be sure is to check the weight of each individual material. On a scale accurate to within one-tenth of a gram or even to one-tenth of an ounce or even to a gram, you can weigh 24 empty capsules and then compare with the weight when full. If you only want a small amount of active ingredient, then you can mix with a material such as milk powder or rice powder as a filler. That way you can use "00" size capsules with various weights of active ingredients.

What is The Capsule Machine made of?

The type of plastic of the top and base of The Capsule Machine, as well as the stand and tamper is ABS. ABS plastic material adheres to requirements regarding contact with food and drinking water, which have been established by the Food and Drug Administration, the Federal Health Office, the den Regulations of the British Plastics Organization, and the Bedarfsgegenständeverordnung as well as other national and international regulations. ABS has good chemical and stress-cracking resistance to inorganic salt solutions, alkalis, mineral acids (except strong oxidizing acids), and some mineral, vegetable, and animal oils. Petroleum-based oils, solvents, and paints SHOULD NOT BE USED, as they will cause the material to craze. There is a possibility that the plastic can be damaged by powders with a high oil content of eugenol. Eugenol is an essential oil that is contained in herbs such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and bay leaf. The two springs of The Capsule Machine are made of Delrin Acetal plastic. This material adheres to the regulations established by the Food and Drug Administration for repeated contact with food and the regulations established by The National Sanitation Foundation for use in drinkable water. The spreader card is made of stiff paper board. If you need to make an extra card you can make one by cutting paper card stock or cover stock, or another material.

Made in the USA.

Super cool and cost effective November 13, 2017
Reviewer: Jean Bryant Corbin from Hawkesbury, ON Canada  
There are two capsule machines you can buy. After researching and now trying this one I can tell you it is so worth it. Upaya also has the best price for this machine so don't look anywhere else (I did it for you lol).

Tricks on how to use it: 1- before reversing the half with the capsules top just tap the capsules top very gently so they will not fall before you place it on other half. 2- Before pressing the top to get the capsules out, press the capsules a bit to secure them (tighten the top of the capsule to the rest of the capsules). When you do that you'll feel them tighten. 3- You don't really need to use the bottom part (stand). After putting all the capsules in just take it in your hand then push the capsules completely in. 4- Using a baking cookie tray really helps as it is all flat but also help minimize the cleaning of powder that you could drop on the table.

I do 3 kinds of supplements and calculated savings of 40-50% (on the cheapest I buy) by encapsulating myself.
