1.Take the cap sheet. Place it on a clean, dry surface.
2.Place the encapsulation sheet on top of the cap sheet using the black pegs to fix it correctly in place.
3.Pour capsule tops into the encapsulation sheet and, using a circular motion, gently shake the tops into the holes. While doing this, cover the gap in the wall of the encapsulation sheet with one hand to avoid spilling the tops.
4.When the holes are filled pour out the excess tops.
5.Remove the encapsulation sheet and put the filled cap sheet to one side.
6.Now take the bottom sheet. Fix the encapsulation sheet to the bottom sheet, using the black pegs to fix it correctly in place.
7.Pour bottoms into the encapsulation sheet and shake as before to fill the holes. Pour off excess bottoms.
8.Remove the filled encapsulation sheet and put it carefully to one side.
9.Pour a scoop of powder filler onto the bottom sheet and use the spreader to fill the bottoms.
10.Take the filled cap sheet and place the middle sheet on top using the black pegs to fit it correctly in place.
11.Turn the cap sheet / middle sheet over and fix to the bottom sheet.
Using both hands and equal pressure, press down once to fit both parts of the capsule together.
This system is very easy to use but it takes a little time to load and re-cap the capsules. Not a big deal in any way. Go for it.
I love this little machine! Works perfectly with the two different gelatin capsules (size 00) that I have purchased from Kosbest! It took about 30 minutes the first few times I used this but after learning and getting used to it, it takes about 15 minutes. I just make my capsules while I'm watching TV and sometimes take longer than needed....but you save a lot more money working on making your own vitamins so I don't mind how long it takes.
I like it because it fills 100 #0 caps pretty quickly and it's inexpensive and pretty solidly constructed. Also, it's easy to operate it and reduce my working time rapidly.
