    After I push the screw into the cork and I pull the handle up, the screw unscrews rather than pull the cork. What am I doing wrong?

    I think your not pushing the handle down far enough first to engage the link.

    An internal link that makes it stop spinning. Personally I dislike all these fancy bottle openers. They rarely work right, and I have less trouble openging a bottle corretly with a waiters corkscrew.

    Same for me. Actually, I'm not too fond of the usual Waiters Corkscrew you see in the stores. I still have decades-old all metal-one from waitressing oh so long ago. I think way back when got it at a kitchen specialty type place.
