Product Review: Cap-m-Quik
    #4085324 - 04/22/05 04:30 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I picked up an 00 size Cap-m-Quik capsule machine  for $12.00 locally, and I tested it out.  Here's my results.



Pouring ground powder into the filler:



Had to make several passes with index card:



"Tamping device sold seperately" Cheap asses! :mad2:  Pencil tamping required to get it packed into there nice and tight:



More passes with index card, and more pencil tamping:



Base dropped and caps added:



Every single pill measured precisely 0.5 grams:



A 1/4 pint jar will hold about 40 capsules comfortably:



Pretty efficient.  A tamper would be nice, but it's not totally necessary as you can see.  Pills must be packed as tight as possibly to fight 0.5 grams of shroom powder.  This is my preferred method of storing and dosing.  :smile::mushroom2:

Cool, thanx man! I've been :eyeball:  this item at my local shop and have been thinkin about tryin it out.  However it seems the one I made myself works equally as well, so I think I'll try to find another one with possibly more feature or something... :thumbup: Good writeup!

Diver, do you use gelatin or vegetable caps??? I use veggy caps and the empty caps themselves weighs slightly more than .1g (10=1.2g), so when I weigh out single caps they weigh .6g rather than .5. I realize this is extremely trivial, I'm just wondering about the difference between caps, if any, and scale accuracy...

I use gelatin capsules and they weigh 0.1g apiece on a pretty accurate scale.  They should weigh 0.6g to be an exact 0.5 dose of shroom powder.  I'm sure an actual tamper would get a true 0.5 in there, but I was rushing it with the old pencil.

Thanks for pointing that out to me.    :thumbup:

is there any difference from the offset given that the material is finely ground
and therefor should be resorbed a bit faster ?

if so, pls describe.

Yea, I'm trying to find a capsule filler with two tampers available. One tamper for a single row, and another for the entire lot if you're using the whole thing... Seems hard to find though..

2nd try, each measure out to 0.6g. That's more like it, thanks for the extra set of eyes NeedMoreSleep (can't believe I missed that).

Ohm, capsule doses take a bit longer to set in (30-40 minutes) and the trip seems to last a bit longer than other methods. Just my experience.

:thumbup: NP!

Ohm, I've noticed that it takes even longer with veggy caps, usually about 1-1.5 hours for it to really kick in.  But it does seem to last longer as Diver described.  If I wanna trip soon I'll eat half my dose in dried shroomies, and half as caps...

or you could open the caps and blend into some juice. i know a few people that only use capsules so they are easily transported, accurate dosage, etc. but not for eating. its alot easier for someone to look over vitamin supplements than the same amount of whole mushrooms.

This is another similar machine.


It comes with a tamper with 24 or whatever pegs to tamp everything down at the same time. I haven't tried it yet. Another option. And yes, "00" size is what you want--that's the biggest.

Really?  I couldn't find that size.  Hmm.  Well, slap my ass and call me Sally!  Damn.  My machine only uses 00.  :sad:

Heh, I think that 000 would be massive to consume.

I also bought the Cap-M-Quick and a 250 count bag of "00" capsules from NOW Foods. I just realized that they're vegetarian and not gelatin. I'll be taking these bad boys back. The capsule company says that the "00" holds between 800-1,000 mg. Those lying bastards! I thought I would only have to pop 3-4 pills for a nice trip, now I have to take double that.

Diver, you're right on the lack of the tamper tool. It's a frigging $12.00 piece of plastic and they couldn't even include the tamper. Who the hell is going to waste money buying the tamper tool separate? What a jip.

Different density then powder normally used.

I found one of these a few years back, with the Tamp tool (same brand and all) pretty cheap online..search for them on google, easy to find multiple sources.
