View Full Version : Bottle Tipper

10-13-2015, 09:23 PM
Has anybody come across a device to assist someone with weakness in their hands and arms to safely pour wine from a bottle into a wine glass?

Have seen numerous tipping devices for kettles and milk cartons but not a wine bottle, or any similarly sized bottle.

There are some out there, from clip on handles, to wicker baskets, to cradles that tip up.
I assume you have tried googling for one? (They do seem a bit hard to find).

Here's a cheap one -only £295 (EEEK!)

This might be more the sort of thing you are looking for, from an Austrailian outfit, although I can't find a price for it.

Looking at that one, if you know someone who is handy with wood they may be able to make something like it for you?

Looks a bit 'clunky' but I suppose it depends if its for your own use, or for on the table at a dinner party.

It could also do with something to hold the bottle in place when it's tipped right up, and some adjustment for different bottles?
(I can feel a session with my design software on the other computer coming on).

Thanks nukecad. Love the one on the link, but how much?

I've found a few now, around the £40 mark.

Like you I've had my design hat on. I see a need for a 3D printer.....

I'm thinking something in wireform, maybe with a chrome finish, rather than 3D printed.

But I've not ruled out injection moulding either.

Depends on quantities, with some thing like this wireform is usually better for smaller quantities

Wireform are the types I've seen, some rather ornate. Perhaps I should get my old meccano set out, perhaps a little motor to tip the bottom.

Lakeland used to do these, but they have not updated their records. You might want to speak to them- http://www.dlf-data.org.uk/report_items.php?reportid=561f792d157d3&view
