    Dang you beat me to it adams. I got sidetracked on a few other threads lol. Also just93, there is also a smaller size "0" kit, and large "000" caps. Any further questions, just ask

    Also I recommend a digital scale if you don't have one already. http://www.nutraplanet.com/category/accessories/scales/

    I know the "00" holds approx 1/4 tsp. (0.95 mL)
    The "000" is:
    Outer Diameter ( mm ) 9.9
    Locked Length ( mm ) 26.1
    Volume ( ml ) 1.37
    Fill Weight Range ( mg ) 820-1640
    which is just over 1/3 more.

    The 00 capper caps both 00 and 000. Problem solved.

    I have both the 0 and the 00. Be very patient with yourself when you start, you will make a mess.

    I say the kits are worth it. esp. if you're using multiple powders to make one product.

    It would get real old, real quick, having to measure out 200mg of this and 300mg of that etc. etc. multiple times every day.

    If it's something like YG or anything that you're just using one raw, sure, it may not be worth it. Otherwise, it's worth it.

    Well here's just an example:

    At NP one bottle of SuperCissusRx has 90 capsules at 750mg each for a total of 67.5g for $30.

    When I cap 67.5 capsules at 1g each it costs me $8.30. Suppose I use a kilo of material in a year that would be $123/year for material.

    Annual cost analysis

    Capping kit $13 (at NP one time purchase)
    1000 "000" caps - $32
    1000g material - $123
    One years (1 kilo self capped material) cost - $168
    One years supply (1 kilo of pre capped [15 bottles]) cost - $445

    First years saving - $277

    Second year cost (less $13 machine) - $155
    Second year cost pre capped prodcut - $445

    Second year saving - $290

    Time spent capping - 1 hr x 3 times per years.

    Ok, so first you load the pill caper with empty pills.

    Then you throw your measured amounts of your bulk powders in a ziploc bag to try to mix them together as well as you can.

    Then you slowly pour the mixture over the tray into the pills. The kit comes with a plastic 'business card' to help move the powder from the tray into the pills.

    Then you use the tamper which presses the powder down in each pill. The tamper is the same size as the tray so you hit all 50 pills at once. I usually tamp and pour about 3-4 times to make sure everything is in there as tight as I can make it.

    Then you move the blocks which lowers the tray, exposing the tops of the filled pills. Then you place the other end of the pills on top without worrying about them falling over or spilling.

    In the pictures below I only used the front left spot in the capper. They should be in order.

    My bad, that was for "000" caps.

    Good price on those "00"'s BTW

    NP's price for "00"'s is hard to beat, but the "000" is not so good and my staple caps

    i think its totally worth it, especially for custom stacks and stuff, i will def. get a kit and some pills, but does the "damper" just pack the powder into the pill so you can put more on top of it?

    The material(s) I am using fits a 10 piece sample average of 1g perfectly. Most convenient dosing for my applications.

    I can spare the $20

    The "000" caps hold only 1/3 more volume than the "00" caps do.

    do you mix a months worth of stuff for example

    im using about 3000mg of powders a day, do i multiply that by 30 then fill up the caps?

    or do i multiply the amount of powder by the amount of caps the capping kit can hold?
