SEXY photos of my Corker!

Here's some pix.
I just entered the 21st century and got a digital camera (HPR717). This the Gai filler and corker. Once all those fill rods are pointing down on the left you can load up empty bottles and they fill. When you take a bottle off and place it on the corker pedestal it automatically advances the carousel. The problem I have is with the jaws that compress the cork before it's loaded into the bottle. They don't jive. The other photo is the jaws pulled from the machine. They are supposed to slide along precise machined surfaces and compress a cork that falls in the middle. Jaws i and ii are misbehaving. Jaw ii jams against i when the springs are compressed and it won't release. There's a little cork sheer and, worse, some metal is getting filed off (those little streaks of grey top left).
